Smoothly written, interesting plot, some really good action. Part of the problem with this book is its length which contributes to the episodic nature. Once we are set up with Eve and John mostly at each others throats, and not in a romantic way, it becomes necessary to periodically inject a crisis or major disruption to maintain tension. Eventually Eve Duncan got on this reader's nerves and she became a bit predictable. Some readers will be put off by the references to former President John Kennedy. I was not. I also found John Logan beginning to wear thin. A shorter, tighter story would have been an improvement.

    Horrible

    I am glad this was not my first Iris Johansen novel. I would never have picked up another. Eve Duncan and Joe Quinn are the most annoying characters. Joe gets upset about anyone talking to Eve....and he's married!!!! I am all for a strong, independent women but Eve Duncan has been taken overboard. Her daughters death keeps getting beaten into the readers head. Needless to say, I won't be buying the Eve Duncan series anymore.

    Uh, Kennedy?

    This turned my stomach, and almost prevented me from reading Fatal Tide, which turned out to be much better. What was she thinking? Giving us a ficticious current president was all fine and good with me, and beat the cheese and dating that would accompany naming the current (RL) president in her novel. But trying to convince readers that this melodramatic heroine was going to dig up the skull of 'the real Kennedy,' and worse, that there were several 'Kennedy imposters' was insulting. I'm glad I had already bought Fatal Tide, or I would never have picked up another Johannsen book.
