In the latest installment of the bestselling author's Eve Duncan series, Rachel and Brandon race against the clock to bring terrorist ringleader Huber down before he can orchestrate a disaster that will lay waste to half the country—while fighting a growing attraction to each other, which could prove just as dangerous as Huber himself.
Johansen manipulates her plotline with care, introducing multiple characters who figure into both Rachel’s safety and coordination to foil Huber’s plan. She drives the reader’s imagination through a dangerous plot full of conflicts. Because revenge underlies the motivation for Rachel, Brandon, Ling, Chang and Huber, Vendetta is the most appropriate title for this gripping, fast-paced thriller.
Although the high-stakes race to thwart Huber provides the framework for Johansen’s latest thriller, the sexual cat-and-mouse dynamic between Jude and Rachel supplies an equally alluring narrative. Johansen’s loyal and never-before readers alike will want more of this newly introduced and provocative pair.
In bestseller Johansen’s pulse-pounding 23rd Eve Duncan novel ... [t]he mutual attraction between Jude and Rachel generates plenty of romantic heat. Highly complex characters and a stunning conclusion make this a winner. Series fans won’t mind that Eve receives only passing mention.
