I could never call this a good book. I'm probably not even going to remember it in a week. But man, is it a zippy, popcorn thriller *made* for lazy beaches and short attention spans. Did you know you can just stick random thumb drives into super secure computers at the CIA and not get caught? If you wanna steal a ton of paperwork from a secure office, just duct-tape it to your back. No one will notice your shell of dead-tree-mulch beneath your sweat shirt. It's cool.
It's a story about marriage and how much you can trust someone or shouldn't trust someone, and in the end she shouldn't trust anyone and the day is saved (???) by men I guess so like, good career woman show us your ways and all. But you're here for two CIA agents literally meeting at the Reflecting Pond in the early morning watching ducks gorge themselves on bread crumbs while side-mouthing state secrets at each other, not because you wanted hand-wringing earnest thoughts on fidelity. Right? Oh, you wanted the fidelity discussion? ...well, you can go read a different book, then; we're enjoying watching Baby Sleuthing Hour in which random desk agent sneaks into a Russian Sleeper Cell Safe House and expects everything to be sunny and every single forsaken person is a double or triple agent for Absolutely No Reason But The Plot Twists!
Hilarious, completely forgettable, and took like...four hours to read. It reminds me incredibly of Grisham's The Firm, even ending on an idyllic beach with money. Good stuff, yo. Pointless stuff, but good.
Great book!! New story line, great characters, good plot. New author can't wait to read more!!
Couldn't put it down, well done.
I found it to be one of the most boring books I've ever read. Cleveland really didn't put her best into it for being a a former CIA analyst, if she was one at all. I question it.
Save your time. It is worthless. Too bad I spent the time reading it. What is ever worst is the resources it took to make it.
Great writing and excellent story. A novel must have both!
Can,t wait for her next book!
I was constantly guessing what would happen next and couldn't predict it. I loved how the CIA agent, Vivian, was constantly torn between her loyalty to the CIA and serving her country, and taking care of her four children. If you love intricate suspense, don't miss this book
Excellent book! Once you finish reading chapter one, you will be hooked! Suspenseful, and thrilling. This is a must read. If you like the tv show "The Americans" or "Homeland", then this is the book for you. I would rate this a 5*'s.
This book was a fun page-turner that was a little different than any "light who-dunit" that I've read so far. I finished in a quick two days and would recommend this book for a fun, easy read that has a good twist involved.
Just keep reading. At one point I thought that so many bad choices had been made and rationalized, that the story was hopeless. I plowed on and it did get to a tipping point that allowed for the possibility of good triumphing. Lots of extreme twists throughout the book. Also, there were so many opportunities for the book to end, but it continued with yet other twists. There HAS TO BE a sequel.
This was a really good read. It had a different twist to a great mystery. Definitely worth the read.
