Fatal exchange has a quick paced action that draws you in from the very beginning and characters that feel like you have known for a while. I haven't read the other books in the series, but didn't need to in order to understand this book completely on its own. The backstory is artfully woven into the narrative and gives newbies what they need to know without boring a devoted fan. I loved the characterization and imagery. I felt like I was there. The only drawback, if you could call it that, is that the ending seemed to solve a problem that could have stayed a problem going forward in future books - the romantic attraction between handler and subordinate. It was sort of anticlimactic and overly sweet to be the ending to a spy novel. I felt like the ending was a totally different genre and lost its identity. Thus the 4 star rating.

Fatal Exchange is a fast-paced spy thriller and I enjoyed every minute of it, even though it stressed me out. This is another addition in the Christy series and I don't think they necessarily need to be read in order, but the reader will enjoy them much more if they are. The Watched trilogy introduces us to Christy and how she becomes a spy and the Christy stories expound on her experiences. Each novel focuses on a mission. Christy finds herself in Paris in this book. I'm always amazed that she's only 19 and has more talents and skills in her little finger than I have. She's fearless, creative, a linguist, possesses a lot of ingenuity, and is a master of disguises. I would probably faint dead away at the first sign of trouble and she managed to take her intense situations and turn them around in her favor. Christy's mission is to find a flash drive with some incriminating evidence on it, but it's not that cut and dried. I couldn't help but wonder if this author has experience in being a spy or something. Events and transitions are so well done and the characters are phenomenal. I was amazed and stressed at the way things unfolded. I definitely wouldn't make a good spy, but I love reading these books. Content: one mild expletive; mild-moderate violence (it's a spy thriller--nothing gory or too graphic, but there are deaths, kidnappings, torture, etc); mild romantic elements (kissing); I would consider it clean.

Undercover agent Christy Hadden, is at it again, in what is quite possibly her most dangerous mission yet. It's supposed to be text book easy, but thanks to a common pickpocket everything goes terribly wrong. Fatal Exchange is packed full of everything you've come to expect from your favorite spy. Christy finds herself on a mission without backup. She's pulling out all the stops, challenging herself to her mental and physical limits. Her quick creative thinking and trade mark "spidey" senses help save not only the day but quite possibly all of France. It wouldn't be a true Christy novel without a dash of romance. Hogan does not disappoint.

Christy is one of my very favorite characters right now. I love the way she is so young, but she's amazingly good at almost everything, and she's made a name out there for herself as a spy. In this book she's in France when something goes horribly wrong with her current mission. The drive she's supposed to pick up is taken by the notorious pick pockets of Paris and the man she's supposed to pick it up from is killed. Things go from bad to worse when Christy is banished by the French Division director who doesn't like her to begin with and she knows that she's on her own to figure out how to get back the drive. This book had me figuratively chewing my nails with wanting to know just what would happen to Christy, she hasn't been so on her own since Watched, does she really know enough to keep herself from getting killed. Watching her infiltrate the pick pockets and actually becoming one of them for a time was almost as painful for me as I know it would have been for her. I really loved a part near the end when she had a chance to basically get revenge on someone who wasn't kind to her, but she chose to basically rise above that and not go for the revenge. I love that she has that kind of character. I love her team, Ace and Haluis were not willing to allow her to really be on her own, even though it meant that they would be in as much trouble as Christy if she got caught doing her own thing. This book is full of action and adventure. I love that there is a touch of romance, without the whole thing being romantic. I love that my teenage daughter loves this series just as much as I do, and that it's perfectly appropriate for her to read as well. This book, and really the whole series are amazingly well-written. You won't want to put them down!

I Love These Books! I feel like I am watching a young woman spy grow up with new twists and turns that keep you asking "What's Next?" Cindy Hogan is a great writer that gets your heart thumping with action, romance and intrigue. You really don't know what could happen next! These are clean and thrilling books that I would recommend to anyone! I can't wait for the next one!
