66 Meters


The only thing worth killing for is family.

Bound to work for Kadinsky for five years, she has one last mission to complete. Yet when she is instructed to capture The Rose, a military weapon shrouded in secrecy, Nadia finds herself trapped in a deadly game of global espionage.

And the only man she can trust is the one sent to spy on her…

Book One of Nadia Laksheva spy thriller series


She’d been fourteen when two men in combat fatigues and balaclavas burst into the kitchen where she and her father were enjoying breakfast.  She could have darted for it, threatened them, helped him. But she hesitated. The moment slipped past. They threw a black hood over his head, cuffed him, and dragged him away to be interrogated, tortured, executed and buried in the woods. A single thought haunted her ever since. Had he known they would come?

A suspenseful read with interesting characters and a finely balanced plot.  The twists and turns will have you guessing.

Book review: Naked in Death by J.D. Robb–Book 1 in Series (9781593558277) Book on CD

The first in the In Death series by J.D. Robb was first published in 1995 and the plot reads like it was taken out of our current headlines.  Set in 2058, the story is about Lieutenant Eve Dallas, New York cop, who is gritty and hard and is fighting for justice for all it’s worth.  What is it worth?

An upscale prostitute Sharon DeBlass has been murdered the 20th century way.  With a hand gun (they use lasers now) and with venomous intent.  Sharon isn’t just any prostitute; she is the granddaughter of Senator DeBlass who thinks he is as moral as they come.  But is he?

Roarke, wealthy entrepreneur extraordinaire, is smart and savvy and is a suspect in the case.  He has an eye for Eve who tries to go by the book, but can he get past her defenses and her past?

I have been meaning to read this series for years and got an opportunity to listen to the book on CD, read by Susan Ericksen.  Ms. Ericksen does a convincing job with each of the characters.  To me, the plot felt mainstream and I didn’t find anything new there, but then the book was written over a decade ago and may have been a new market to some.  The romance between Roarke and Eve was okay to bring depth to Eve’s character, but it wasn’t one of the better romances that I have read.  Let’s hope they get better in the latter books in the series.  The story does contain violence and talks about rape, incest and child abuse, so be prepared for that.

Overall I found the story to be fairly interesting, but not outstanding.  In fact, I guessed the murderer pretty early in the story.  If you like gritty police procedurals with suspense and romance mixed in, this one’s for you.

Book review: Excuse Me, Miss (EMM Series) by Phillip Thomas Duck (Ebook)

Vicki Frost is a fidelity anthropologist which is a fancy name for a private investigator who investigates cheating husbands. She’s very good at her job and has caught many men red-handed, but she has a dilemma. She has fallen for one of them and she is being threatened by more than just the angry wife.

Vicki’s boss, James Boston, has always had Vicki’s back, but he wants more. Can he help her settle the past and save her from current danger?

This is a sexy suspense short fiction novel that has an interesting premise. Mr. Duck has created a strong, but vulnerable, woman who needs to face her past and get on with her future.

Thank you to Mr. Duck for giving me the opportunity to review his book.

Book review: Silent Run by Barbara Freethy (9780451412539)

I couldn’t put this book down! The suspense is awesome and you can cut the tension between “Sarah” and Jake with a knife.

Sarah Tucker has amnesia after being run off the road. Enter a handsome stranger who claims she ran away with their only child. And where IS her child? Sarah’s past is unknown to her, but there is someone trying to kill her.

An excellent book by Barbara Freethy and I can’t wait to read Dylan and Catherine’s story in SILENT FALL.
