I like Johansen's stuff and this is no exception. This tale is fun and the action never stops. Drug lords, betrayal, revolutionaries, hand-to-hand combat, snipers, helicopter flights and lots more fun! The narrator has no clue about Spanish language and there were a couple of other obvious pronunciation gaffes that were irritating. Nothing deep or that will stick in your memory, but fun.
Enjoyed listening while driving, but then I enjoy listening to most of Iris Johansen's books.
Part Super Hero and part Romance, very entertaining.
Quite boring. Slow, slow, slow..... It only started getting good at the disc before the last one.
Well written, but predictable. Quite typical of Iris Johansen's books. Very entertaining to listen to while driving.
Johansen began writing after her children left home for college. She first achieved success in the early 1980s writing category romances. In 1991, Johansen began writing suspense historical romance novels, starting with the publication of The Wind Dancer. In 1996 Johansen switched genres, turning to crime fiction, with which she has had great success. She had seventeen consecutive New York Times bestsellers as of November 2006.
Johansen lives in Georgia and is married. Her son, Roy Johansen, is an Edgar Award-winning screenwriter and novelist. Her daughter, Tamara, serves as her research assistant.
