Johansen spins an old tale of the romanovs with a new little twist. The charachers were cute. An odd but cute bunch. A little twist at the end that was a little unexpected but was a great way to paint out some of the "bad guy" players. a different approach for her but definately a good one.

I have read other books by Iris Johansen but found this book to be frustrating. I even stopped and read two other books before forcing myself to finish this novel. My main issue was that the characters were poorly development and often felt very forced. The heroin in particular was inconsistent and I just couldn't support or believe her character - actually I truly disliked her. I think the plot could have been interesting but it all felt rushed which made it uneventful. I believe Johansen wrote Killer Dreams and I found that a much better read.

    Solid overall read

    I don't read or finish very many books, but this book kept me wanting more and I ended up finishing it very fast. It was a great story! I would compare it to Jason Borne meets National Treasure. It had a good amount of mystery that keeps you guessing.

    My only problem was the relationship between Garret and Emilly. It was certainly steamy, but I felt Garret was too whipped at the end. I like my badass assassin agent types to be just that, BUT that is just a personal preference. Still a fantastic book and I recommend reading it.

    New author for me...

    Deadlock hooked me from the very beginning. I have to say that it lost me a little in the middle but picked back up again for a good finish. This was my first read by Johansen but won't be my last.

    Gotta Love Iris

    I have become and Iris Johansen Junkie....I love all her books so far and can't stop reading them.

    One thing about this book, there was not major twist that I've come to find in all her other books.

    Still amazing and stimulating!

    I was surprised

    The last few books I had read by Iris Johansen didn't interest me and seemed to be the same. I was pleasantly surprised by Deadlock because it seemed like she got her spark back. This book had a few twists and turns I never expected. I hope her next books are as good as this one.
