Overview

The human body consists of two-thirds water.

As concertgoers on a steamy day in Boston find out, water can kill as much as it gives life.

A terrorist attack at City Hall Plaza has the authorities perplexed. The government, in response, sends in a capable but young agent - an agent born from the ashes of terrorism itself - to handle it.

But as her partner dies and the terrorist strikes again, Jaclyn Johnson - code named Snapshot - finds herself in a situation she has trained a decade to face: She's up against a man with enough money to finance a war against his competition. With a deadline in place to stop him - and with a car holding enough hidden tricks to evade capture - Snapshot infiltrates his hidden installation and finds out her target's true end game, a secret that could have the world fighting over water.

The tongue-in-cheek cover tagline says, "If Bond had boobs." In four words this gives the high-level view of Jaclyn Johnson. She's got Bond's good looks, enough to model as a cover, hiding her true career. She has the technology of Bond with a plethora of gadgets, a few she invented herself and some that (over) compensate for a rare eye condition that leaves her almost blind without an assist. Topping it off is a car that anyone would envy plus the brains behind the beauty to get the job done. In Jaclyn Johnson, Sweeney has a great new character I hope to see in many sequels. Without giving away too much of the plot I'll say that it is also fitting of a Bond tale with an amoral megalomaniac pulling the strings in an evil and far reaching plot. The majority of the book takes place in the Greater Boston area. When a book is happening in a real location those who have some familiarity with the area can often picture the location in their mind's eye and this adds to the story. Although I've only visited once, I was still able to picture many of the landmarks of Boston as I was reading. This and other specific location color about the city and its history helped "put me there." The last notable quality I found in "Model Agent" is something I wouldn't have expected in this genre, especially from a male author. Not only does it have a strong female as the lead character, but also two of the main secondary characters, the President of the US and the director of the CIA, are strong women in powerful positions. As a father and grandfather, this is something I like. Positive female role models, even fictional, are something I like to know are out there for my daughter and granddaughters to see. **Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog.**

Fast paced, intriguing, and a twist you won't see coming! I highly recommend this book and cannot wait to read the rest in the series.

This book was not very convincing as a serious spy thriller. The plot was not worthy of a freshman english class. Very dissapointing. I won't read another of this author's books.

Model Agent is a gripping and intriguing story centered around a fantastic main charachter. She's tough, gritty, capable and human all at once and surronded by some great suppporting players. The author seems to have invested a great deal of time researching local venues and included as much detail regarding locations as possible without distracting from the actual story. As a former Mass. resident, I greatly enjoyed revisiting places of my child hood and having them potrayed correctly!! I cannot wait to see what Agent Snapshot is up to next!!

MODEL AGENT BY SEAN SWEENEY This refreshing perspective on the feminine hero was an exhilarating ride with a volatile mix of action and thrills. Agent Jaclyn Johnson is a stunning heroine who doesn't let her disabilities impede her activities as a CIA agent. She was born partially blind but can see shadows. At the age of 14, after her parents deaths in 9-11, the government took her under their wing and trained her to become a CIA agent and outfitted her with special Foster Grant glasses equipped with Heads Up Display (HUD) that enhances rather than hampers her duties as an agent. I was quickly caught up in the intrigue of the storyline and impressed with the super spy gadgetry, which includes a loaded Porsche and specially outfitted I-Pad. I want those. The plot line was exceptional with lots of excitement from the start. Grant Chillings, the terrorist of the story made me worry about our country's safety if our bottled and natural water supply was tampered with. It made me think twice about drinking bottled water. I'm highly anticipating reading the next installment of this explosive series. I would recommend this book for readers who enjoy hold-onto-to-your-seat adventures with a lot of action and thrills. It also speaks to those who have a special place in their heart for kick ass heroine who overcome impossible odds to save the day. 5 STARS given for the electrifying ride into Agent Jaclyn Johnson's world.

I was caught up in this story in the first couple pages and it was a fast paced, wild ride from there on out. The story moved along quickly, filled with a ton of twists and turns, that do come together by the end! The twists don't stop either, I was still completely sideswiped by one in Chapter 32! It was a great read from the first page to the last. If you like thrillers and stong female characters, you'll enjoy this. Heck, if you enjoy a good book, this one is fun.

Book Title: Model Agent-Jaclyn Johnson, Code Name Snapshot Series Author: Sean Sweeney Kindle Edition Reviewed by Michele Tater for The Couch Tater Review "My books are like water; those of the great geniuses are wine. (Fortunately) everybody drinks water." ~Mark Twain As a grave situation takes an even uglier turn, the president of the United States of America, is forced to send a fairly new CIA agent to investigate. This is no ordinary agent though, she looks at herself as a defender of those that are weaker and is dedicated 100% to her country. Her name is Jaclyn Johnson, who is also a model hence the code name of Snapshot and has an handicap that she doesn't let get in her way. This bullet fast, action filled book follows the model/agent on her quest to take a mad man into justice no matter what. She has many high-tech cool gadgets that can help her do just that. Most of the book takes place in the Boston, Massachusetts area, home of the Red Sox (my favorite baseball team I must add). It describes many land marks and roadway to get around the area too. It even takes the reader to a baseball game. I am not even close to kidding when I say that this a fast paced read. There are not many parts where things slow down and may cause the reader to become bored. From the first chapter, I actually thought holy crap, I did not see that coming, and I know I said something to that effect through most of the book. That being said, that is why I am being a little vague in not giving the potential reader too much information of the book. I will say that it is like a ride in an 2010 Porsche AG 918 Spyder on full throttle trying to make the opening pitcher of a world series game, where the Red Sox are playing and have only one game to win it all. Also it will make you think twice about what you decide to have to drink from now on.

This book was terrible. I don't understand how any intelligent reader could possibly give this a positive review. Unless the author is writing those under assumed names, too. Yikes. Avoid this book--and presumably any others by this same writer--like the plague.

Really didnt care for this book..The villian was so evil, he was funny. The "secret" agent was a fashion model and they called her Snapshot.....even when they talked to her in person...it was just silly and not very thrilling
