Wow -- so many characters in multiple locales that I really needed a program to keep them all straight. This book wasn't as satisfying as the last Johansen tale I listened to. The plot was exceedingly far fetched, with really bad bad guys, really good good guys and a global conspiracy that's just not believable. Too bad because I like the Eve character and her little family. Just not this time.
Excellent mystery! This book has characters with enough depth to make the reader care about what happens to them. I recommend it!
Stinks. If I heard that the character shrugged or, he/she said something 'dully' one more time, thought I'd laugh. Silly paranoid plot that never made sense from the standpoint of the protagonist or the listenener -- I mean a secret society controlling world decisions who takes the time to destroy the life of a forensics expert? Shrug. The poor dialogue is a distraction. The the rivalry between the two men -- lol. Bottom line: goofy premise, dumb plot and poorly executed. And what's with the fake English accent of the narrator anyway?
I could not respect the main character even though she was supposed to be highly talented. The good guys were low-classed.
Johansen began writing after her children left home for college. She first achieved success in the early 1980s writing category romances. In 1991, Johansen began writing suspense historical romance novels, starting with the publication of The Wind Dancer. In 1996 Johansen switched genres, turning to crime fiction, with which she has had great success. She had seventeen consecutive New York Times bestsellers as of November 2006.
Johansen lives in Georgia and is married. Her son, Roy Johansen, is an Edgar Award-winning screenwriter and novelist. Her daughter, Tamara, serves as her research assistant.
