    Good action read, but not for the romance seekers

    This was really enjoyable. It captured me from the beginning. It makes you think "what if" and how would you react in that type of situation. I am a huge fan of Alex Kava, she is my favorite author. I am starting to see less character development with each book, however. It seems as if Ms. Kava is getting slightly bored with the characters. The other thing that I really dislike is the romances Maggie has, or lack thereof. There is very little romance, and it is thrown in there randomly just to be there. I would like to see Maggie develop a steamy romantic relationship, instead of keeping Nick on a leash, so to speak. During this book, there was a big ordeal about the sparks and the two of them almost kissing, and then it just ended. Find a love interest, or love triangle, and develop on it, and I would be a happy reader! All in all, very intense read, but not for action/romance fans.

    I Also Recommend:

    GREAT BOOK Alex Kava is a wonderful writer and I can't wait for her next offering to read! Please join this Author's ride through the action she has so wonderfully created.

    I have read all of her books I like how she has made Maggie O'dell a wonderful character to follow. The characters around Maggie are people you would want around in life. The books take off in from the first chapter! Alex puts you in the head and thought process of all the characters good or evil!

    Black Friday

    I have read all of Alex Kava's novels and look forward to each one. This book was my least favorite in the Maggie series. I did not enjoy the constant references of who characters were because if you had been reading her series you would know this, so it was a little aggravating and distracting at times. I do not like her new boss and the fact that she and Tully are blamed for Cunningham's death, but that is what makes a book interesting and enjoyable. Of course I would have liked a little more involvement from Tully and also to have seen a little more from Ben in this one as well. Not sure I like where the book is headed with Homeland Security as my husband works for Homeland Security, so this bores me. Homeland Security is not nearly as exciting as the FBI because my father was in the FBI, so I know firsthand both sides. I did enjoy the theory of the third person again as it has long been suspected there was a third person...just makes you really wonder the truth about that. Overall it was a good book (and you can't touch on everything or it would be 700 pages), but not sure I want to go shop at the Mall of America anytime soon! I will keep reading Alex Kava as she is my favorite.

    Good read-entertaining

    This book was a fast read and kept me entertained. The plot was thought provoking and well written. I enjoy the characters but am getting tired of the back and forth unresolved issues between Maggie & Nick. Alex Kava needs to make up her mind regarding those two characters, it reminds me of other books in which the main character cant ever resolve his or her issues in life and gets boring after awhile.
