COME AND FIND ME
It must be difficult to create a character smart enough to hack into any computer system but plausibly dumb enough to fall for obvious technologically based traps. Unfortunately, Ephron doesn’t quite succeed here. Her novel reads as though it were written by someone who doesn’t spend that much time online – fine for those who also don’t, but those who do may find all the techno jargon tedious, clearly masking what the author doesn’t know. This is less a “novel of suspense” (as the subtitle claims) and more a story of superficial female empowerment, lacking in substance but rich in shopping.
