    Body of Lies

    A lover¿s betrayal. . . A killer on the loose. . . ---------------- Eve Duncan was actually happy. She had a man who loved her, an adoptive daughter as great as her own, and her dead daughter¿s bones were found and safely buried. But then a letter in the mail opens her eyes to a secret her boyfriend, Joe Quinn, kept for two full years. Now she wants away from him, and when a job opportunity in a different state presents itself, she packs her bags and leaves. On her first night in Louisiana, someone tries to kill her, and they won¿t give up until she¿s dead! Will she uncover the secret in time? Or will death silence her? ----------------------- When I picked up this book I wasn¿t surprised it got high on every bestsellers list. It was moving a mile a minute and between the hired assassins, secrets, deaths, and conspiracies, I knew I was reading a great novel. And then, after chapter 5, the book came to a stop and decided to creep at turtle speed. The character of Eve Duncan became uncharacteristically naive and immature, while her 12 year old adoptive daughter Jane was acting like a 50 year old, smart and mature beyond her years. The book dragged all until chapter 12. Once chapter 12 begins, the book takes flight once again and the bombs (literally) start going off. The ending was good and though I thought it was predictable, it was still somewhat enjoyable. It wasn¿t as good as the first two books in that series, but it was better then the third. Unlike most of her plots that come out of nowhere, this one had some real basis because fuel cells and the Cabal (a secret society) really exist. ------------------- If you want to read this book, I advise that you first check out the first two books in the series ¿The Face of Deception¿ which is about a political conspiracy so big, you will not see the final twist coming! And ¿The Killing Game¿ with a serial killer plot that¿s bound to shock! This book was rather slow compared to the first two in the series.

    Boring Boring Boring

    Bought the abridged CD version and still it is one of the worst I have heard of her books. Eve Duncan is plain stupid in her actions towards her lover and protector and acts like no normal human being would in the same circumstance. Could not wait to get to the end and get this book out of my collection

    okay

    Started out great, then i ended up skimming thru the last 150 pages. The last page was very well written, great ending.

    Mystery Romance Mess

    Body of Lies has a better than average twisted plot spoiled by a confusing mix of mystery and B movie romance. The characters are alpha (fe)male and the dialogue is childishly preachy and unnatural. I felt like I was reading a Bette Davis movie script directed by Barbara Cartland. And just like any attempt to jumble pink with blue, the results are a murky gray that neither please nor persuade anyone.

    Not exactly Pulitzer material

    Eve is one of those tiresome defiant heroines who will never take any advice 'stay here - No I won't'. To add some interest while reading, try counting the 'stiffeneds' - half a point for a 'tensed'

    Terrible Book!

    Sorry, but I could barely get through this book. The writing is stiff and the suspense is just not there. When you don't care if the heroine gets blown up, you know it's not working!
