Things aren't going well for top secret agent Lila Moreau. Her new partner, a handsome archivist named Joel Faraday, gets the drop on her when she tries to teach him who's boss; someone within her government agency, the Office for Political Unity and Security-OPUS-is leaking information; and she's up against an arch villain known as the Sorcerer. But the bad guy's having problems of his own in this mildly amusing action romance from the author of Express Male and You've Got Male. The Sorcerer's attempt to hold the world hostage via a computer virus keeps running into snags, thanks to the three unreliable nerds he's depending on, plus a female geek named Iris who's gotten under his skin. Despite some deft writing, Bevarly can't draw tension from her bevy of misfits, and the inept sleuthing never rises to the level of farce. She does, however, provide the true love and happy endings fans will be looking for. (June)Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
