    I really enjoyed the first two in this series, but there is NO W

    I really enjoyed the first two in this series, but there is NO WAY in Hell....LITERALLY anyone would continue to allow what goes on in this book to happen. Lets really make poice out to be
    in sleep mode here...because they certainly do not pursue the obvious even with death in it. Really, we are supposed to believe that this woman would just continue to let her identity be compromised, her reputation, get beat up and nearly raped for a GUY.....too unbelieable to truly enjoy the plot line....too many things make you go REALLY...ARE YOU KIDDING ME....NO WAY...

    Evan Delaney is back in a great third outing!

    Evan Delaney is having a very bad week. Her boyfriend Jessie's brother PJ is wasted again, and he seems to think he saw a woman thrown into the ocean. Jessie's a mess too, dealing with his family and PJ's troubles. There's a job offer on the table at Jessie's Law Firm, but it's on hold since she's being accused of check fraud by a washed up rocker's wife; both important clients.

    And she's got to be a bride's maid for Jessie's cousin on Saturday.

    Meg Gardiner's third Evan Delaney novel is a non-stop roller-coaster ride into chaos and mayhem. Written with an eye toward making the reader part of the heroine's struggle, Gardiner again succeeds at creating characters on both sides of the line who embody both subtle and overt draw. The good guys are good, but not super heroes. They get hurt, fall when they need to run, get depressed and don't think of everything; just like real people. The bad guys are scary, unreasonable, without compassion, and easy to despise.

    One of the most noticeable things for me is that I find myself feeling the frustration that Evan is experiencing. The situations unfold in a way that brings the reader right into the midst of the story. I find this one of the most telling traits of great writing, as I become part of the story, not just an observer.

    Even more, I have really come to appreciate that the heroine is a Sci-Fi writer and part time lawyer, and not a cop. Because she's not a cop, she doesn't think like a cop, act like a cop, fight like a cop. She acts like a lover, sister, aunt, or friend would in overwhelming, out of control situations.

    The physical descriptions of Evan's world are vivid and colorful, and transport the reader into the midst of it. The Santa Barbara setting is beautiful and presents the perfect backdrop to the story.

    I highly recommend Jericho Point to anyone who enjoys a great suspense novel. I do suggest that you read the previous books in the series first, as there is a great deal of development and background that makes this book more understandable.

    fabulous crime caper

    Free lance attorney Evan Delaney runs to where her lover¿s brother PJ Armstrong is partying after receiving his distress call. When she arrives, he locks himself in the bathroom before she persuades him to tell her what is wrong. As he talks she realizes he is stoned, but insists he saw a woman fall off the balcony. When she goes to call the police, he stops her saying he is not sure whether his imagination ran wild. --- At the law firm where she works part time, her boss shows her checks made out to Evan Delaney from Datura, Inc. The client is willing to look the other way if Evan returns the money. The only problem is that she never received the checks to cash them. When she looks up her finances and credit statements, she finds checks and credit card bills she never used to buy merchandise. Evan knows someone stole her idtntity and then the body of Brittany surfaces with credit cards in Evan¿s name. Creditors are after the real Evan and the law is looking into her allegedly passing bad checks. Finally a drug kingpin demands she pay back with interest the money he lent her. As much as she loves Jesse, evidence mounts that his brother was involved. --- An Evan Delaney novel is always a treat to read as the heroine knows when to be tough but also shows her fears especially if she or someone she cares about is going to be hurt. Her inner strength enables her to face ugly truths and nasty people while doing something to rectify the mess. The story line is fast-paced but driven by the heroine as she goes about cleaning up a mess while Meg Gardiner strongly warns readers that identity theft does not always denote stranger as it also can be an inside job. --- Harriet Klausner
