|Lucy Carlton has everything she could ever want except a child of her own and freedom from The Network. She has tried to leave in the past and had to spend years proving herself to win back the trust and respect of her bosses. Vic Leventhal loves Lucy, probably even more than he loves himself. Angelo Pluzetti loves them both for different reasons. Can these three people find a way to do the impossible without bringing down the whole Network around their heads?
Karen Wiesner wraps up this excellent series with another thriller. A fan since the first book, it's always been hard to believe she could keep this as exciting as she has throughout. This one is as good as the eleven installments that came before it.
Character building excels as people who have skills that can kill if needed are humanized. In Lucy's case, sometimes she seems like a whiney little spoiled girl, but not when we're reminded of what she's been through to get where she is. For Vic, being the son of a man who is constantly trying to destroy The Network has made him even more honorable than most. Being swayed by the love he has for Lucy doesn't stop him from maintaining that sense of responsibility to those who saved him from a fate worse than death.
This book will grab you and refuse to be put down from first page to last. A sense of impending doom keeps the suspense heightened throughout. One wrong move and things can go so badly. If you enjoy suspense with a love story better than Romeo and Juliet any of the books in this series is a winner. I'm sorry to see them end but this finale couldn't be any better.
