    Doesn t even deserve one star.This author is on my red lined list of never again writers list Too many killings, bad language and very detailed sex.

    How does one assign stars or ratings to such a book Candy for the mind with double the normal dose of sugar The book has no character development, no intellectual stimulation, precious little humor , but goodness what a rush I stayed up all night to see what was around the next corner.An operative, Carmen, whose real name we don t know but who has numerous identities has had her cover, and that of her controller, Jacob although we re not really sure what they re professional relationship mi How does one assign stars or ratings to such a book Candy for the mind with double the normal dose of sugar The book has no character development, no intellectual stimulation, precious little humor , but goodness what a rush I stayed up all night to see what was around the next corner.An operative, Carmen, whose real name we don t know but who has numerous identities has had her cover, and that of her controller, Jacob although we re not really sure what they re professional relationship might be, blown and she is under attack from all sides, each time barely escaping And the attackers resemble her both in looks and prowess She also has to deal with Cory, an escaped convict who had kidnapped Kaufmann, her former parole officer The reader has no idea what is happening or why The back story gradually emerges.Since the plot has few surprises and a certain inevitability after the 14th time Carmen has escaped certain death the fall from the 95th floor window was fun it won t be much of a spoiler to reveal that a government Project Hydra had trained seven twin sisters to be Jason Bourne wannabes, or should I say, better thans and one of them take a guess has a transceiver duplicating one carried by the president, that has the capability of launching a nuclear strike One of the sisters, in concert with a Russian bad guy, an evil twin, one might say, heh, heh, wants it to get it from her sister to control the world our heroine wants to stop her.Once one gets past the extraordinary implausibility of the action, it s like a roller coaster ride than never seems to end, each twist and turn, a littledevious and gravity defying than the previous Even Jack Daniels makes a cameo appearance for some totally bizarre reason exceptionIncompetence and fragile egos happen A few jokes about your small cock, and you re willing to fuck up the simplest task just to get payback You men take size so personally She lets a smile play across her lips Especially those who are not so well endowed The fingers of his right hand twitch, as if they long to fondle a trigger I didn t hear any complaints from you last night Hammett cups Victor s cheeks A little sensitive, comrade What you lack in size, you make up for In speed

    Fast, fun, and furious The kind of book you probably won t be able to put down between chapters There were a few typos and proof reading misses, but it wasn t significant and wasn t enough to pull me out of the story The switches between first person POV past tense for Chandler , third person POV past tense for Fleming and third person POV present tense for the bad guys was a smidgeon distracting, but then I really don t like reading books written in present tense, and that may be why A Fast, fun, and furious The kind of book you probably won t be able to put down between chapters There were a few typos and proof reading misses, but it wasn t significant and wasn t enough to pull me out of the story The switches between first person POV past tense for Chandler , third person POV past tense for Fleming and third person POV present tense for the bad guys was a smidgeon distracting, but then I really don t like reading books written in present tense, and that may be why Again, it wasn t enough to make me lose interest in the story All in all, it was an exciting, good read, and well worth the price

    Flee by J.A Konrath and Ann Voss Peterson is a non stop thriller on enhanced steroids with the wildest combination of sexy women, nasty women, nasty guys and enough weaponry to start a war This has to be the fastest moving novel I ve ever read indeed, the pacing of my own work in progress picked up speed just by osmosis Konrath s own ever popular female star Jack Daniels makes a sweet cameo, but the heroine of this sexy beast is another female named Chandler, who finds herself in the unenvi Flee by J.A Konrath and Ann Voss Peterson is a non stop thriller on enhanced steroids with the wildest combination of sexy women, nasty women, nasty guys and enough weaponry to start a war This has to be the fastest moving novel I ve ever read indeed, the pacing of my own work in progress picked up speed just by osmosis Konrath s own ever popular female star Jack Daniels makes a sweet cameo, but the heroine of this sexy beast is another female named Chandler, who finds herself in the unenviable position of having her cover blown with not a friend or sister to turn to Assassins are after her because she has something they want Oh and there s a lot pain, sweat, pleasure and tears But that s all I m going to say about the story, as it would pain me to ruin your pleasure What s amazing about this loaded.45 er book is that it is so seamlessly written by two people Except for one scene, I dare anyone to accurately differentiate between Konrath and Voss Back to that one scene in a moment Whether Chandler is using a Tec 9, a Mercworx VORAX double edged combat knife or a bottle of 2007 MacPhail Pratt Pinot Noir to smack her would be assassins silly, she is a veritable Baedeker of how to survive against all odds But she gets so beat up, so bruised and so battered while trying to outwit and outshoot her opponents that I was too exhausted to readthan a dozen pages an evening Or my eyes hurt from all the wincing I did every time Chandler got herself on the wrong end of the two timing, double crossing sons of a gun who were out to kill her.Now, about that one scene Wellhow can I put thisdelicately than Konrath Peterson There s a scene early on in the novel that has Chandler wanting some hot sex Warily, she hooks up with someone she met on line oh, she s careful, she meets him in a restaurant, eliminates any trace of her whereabouts on the computer, uses her slightly rusty hacker skills to make sure he s who he said he is, and goes back to his apartment with him Being who she is, Chandler handcuffs him to a table and then proceeds to climb atop him, after pulling his pants down There s oral sexher to him, him to her, and I have to say, it s the hottest sex scene I ve read in a long time Now, this from a woman who sleeps with womenmake that one woman But the question is which writer wrote that scene I think I know At first glance one might think Konrath wrote the bj scene because some uninformed people might think every male s first favorite fantasy only could be written with as much gusto as this one if a man wrote it But are you so very certain Heh The second favorite male fantasy being the entirely ridiculous illusion that two women would actually WANT to be with a guyI m kidding, I m kidding of course it exists, but I don t know any Now, for the second part of that sexy scene, I m torn it could be that Konrath wrote that second part, too, but let s not forget that Peterson is one cunning linguist, also OK, groan, but so, I m not sure about that part Wonder if I ll ever know Bottom line, you ll excuse the phrase, is that this book at 2.99 is the best buy out there right now for a good read, a great escape, a fantasy steam bath, followed by a sauna following a triathlon workout that ll drop that last 10 pounds you ve been trying to lose Don t read this book if you ve got breathing problems, though, because it will take your breath away faster than Chandler canwell, you knowshoot Or whatever I was going to give this book four stars, but after I slept on it yes, I literally fell asleep on my iPAD after finishing the book , I realized that any two people who put that much energy, action, passion and old time good story telling into a book like Flee is a great friend of thriller readers, hell, all readers, everywhere I bought it onI downloaded Kindle for iPAD, paid me my three bucks and got me my thrills Five Stars all day long

    This is a hard one to rate The story is intriguing and action packed with suspense However the execution of that story could use some work Written in first person and it is very difficult to distinguish between the voice for the two main characters At first thought you might think that is acceptable, but they have such different personalities, motivation and character that it just seems absurd that you aren t able to tell the difference until a name is dropped Loved the cameos by Jack and H This is a hard one to rate The story is intriguing and action packed with suspense However the execution of that story could use some work Written in first person and it is very difficult to distinguish between the voice for the two main characters At first thought you might think that is acceptable, but they have such different personalities, motivation and character that it just seems absurd that you aren t able to tell the difference until a name is dropped Loved the cameos by Jack and Harry Loved the pacing All in all it was a solid read I just wished it had been polished up a bitin terms of the voice and the loose end of what happened to the Instructor

    A pulpy, implausible, page turner Complete mind candy of the nonstop action variety Seven identical twins with the same fingerprints A cell phone that can launch nuclear weapons against anyone in the world All of the action happens in about 24 hours The lead character gets her shoulder dislocated first thing then spends the rest of the day fighting with people and falling out of 100 story buildings Not likely, of course Impossible, really But if you just want to give your brain a little A pulpy, implausible, page turner Complete mind candy of the nonstop action variety Seven identical twins with the same fingerprints A cell phone that can launch nuclear weapons against anyone in the world All of the action happens in about 24 hours The lead character gets her shoulder dislocated first thing then spends the rest of the day fighting with people and falling out of 100 story buildings Not likely, of course Impossible, really But if you just want to give your brain a little thriller vacation, this is fine for that purpose

    I wish I could go higher than 3 stars hereI had high hopes I don t dislike the book but it get s a 3 by what might be called the proverbial skin of it s proverbial teeth I mean it could have been much better I liked Konrath s other series pretty well Here while the idea is good there are someegregious flaws.The book in many ways put in mind of a comic book The characters verge on being superheroes and super villains I ll give the book this, there is plenty of action I mean I love a I wish I could go higher than 3 stars hereI had high hopes I don t dislike the book but it get s a 3 by what might be called the proverbial skin of it s proverbial teeth I mean it could have been much better I liked Konrath s other series pretty well Here while the idea is good there are someegregious flaws.The book in many ways put in mind of a comic book The characters verge on being superheroes and super villains I ll give the book this, there is plenty of action I mean I love a good action book The problem is that a book needsthan just action to be good action.You get another assassin working for an organization so secret that not even the government it serves really knows about it Now I ve said before that an idea not being completely new is not necessarily a problem I mean how many truly new and unique ideas could there be after thousands of years of story telling The thing is that while we get a lot of good ideas from the spy fi and action genres we also get almost every cliche that s ever been in those genres also Look, the book is readable and since I bought 3 at once I plan to follow it up That said what you ll get is some good action with a plot you ve seen before and characters from Protagonists are Us I ll say a littleunder a spoiler warning but over all i can recommend this as a read most who like thrillers, action and so on will like Just not really as good as I think it could have been view spoiler Okayjust us now What were a few things that caused my eyes to foll Well just a couple First the scenes where our new protagonist meets and interacts with Konrath s other protagonist Jack Daniels This super efficient super spy who kicks EVERYONE S butt almost gets beaten by a cop.Then we find out what the MacGuffin a cell phone actually is Why it s a transceiver that is a copy of one the president has that can launch the nation s nuclear arsenal I mean of course that makes sense right They will make a backup for the President s launch abilityand then entrust it to an assassin without telling her what it is.Right.Oh and back to the first annoyance I mentioned Jack just keeps showing up I really think he needs to decide which character he s writing about Chandler or Jack Daniels hide spoiler

    Flee is one hell of a page turner, but not without flaws An early subplot involving an escaped convict struck me as a bit contrived and sorely lacking in effective resolution It was too extraneous to the overall plot and was an unnecessary addition that, in retrospect, appears to have been created simply to help the main character get out of a jam In some ways, it seemed as if the writer s had begun the story with one idea, but changed tracks as it evolved and couldn t quite figure out how Flee is one hell of a page turner, but not without flaws An early subplot involving an escaped convict struck me as a bit contrived and sorely lacking in effective resolution It was too extraneous to the overall plot and was an unnecessary addition that, in retrospect, appears to have been created simply to help the main character get out of a jam In some ways, it seemed as if the writer s had begun the story with one idea, but changed tracks as it evolved and couldn t quite figure out how to reconcile the different threads In the end, they attempted to use it as a way to shed light on the main character, a woman known as Chandler, and in that part it was successful However, in a book that s already stuffed with ever expanding ideas and plot points, it ended up feeling hollow My only other quibble is that too many of the character spoke a bit too often in puns, a cliche of the action movie genre that this book operates comfortably within for instance, after stabbing somebody with a fork, Chandler makes it clear to them how much trouble they re in by telling them they re forked Overall though, it is a fun popcorn read and authors Konrath and Peterson keep the story moving quickly, and it s impossible not to stay engaged It s a lean, fast paced read that constantly keeps the stakes high and by book s end, most readers myself included will be ready for book 2
