    Not what I expected

    I sat down to read this, expecting a complex puzzle that would keep me guessing right to the end. After the first three chapters I was frustrated with the laboured writing and the slowness of the story telling. A fast paced thriller this is not.

    But I stuck with it, thinking that it had to get better. The two central characters of Neeley and Hannah are intriguing. Racine and Nero are predictable. For the first few chapters, the reader is kind of in the dark, like Neeley and Hannah. But then answers come just a bit too easily, like the writer couldn't think a way out of the hard place - it never seems to cross Neeley's mind that if she can get the answers so easily, so too can the Cellar.

    Did it get better? Not for me. If you want a book that just gets you from the start of the story to the finish without having to think about how you get there, then you'll probably enjoy the read. For me it was more of a chore and at the end, I didn't really care what happened.

    Women can be just as lethal as men, and two women can be more than twice as dangerous.

    The main characters are two women, both in their early thirties. But their lives have been so different the can hardly communicate with each other. They have to, though, because someone is out to kill them. Trained assassin Neely and trophy wife Hannah learn to work together to save their lives and work out a puzzle that's rooted right under the US government. This book has loads of physical stunts, narrow escapes, real villainy, lots of brain work, and the making of a very unlikely team. It never lets go of you. I read all night, and now there's a sequel, and I'm stoked all over again!
