THE LAWS OF PASSION
Dana Aldrich is a tough FBI agent, and she is less than thrilled with her newest assignment. She's playing bodyguard to Marcus Danforth as a cover while she tries to find a connection between him and a drug cartel. But Marc isn't terribly happy to have acquired a shadow. He figures, best-case scenario, she prevents him from clearing his name; worst-case scenario, she finds some circumstantial evidence to make his situation worse. Linda Conrad's The Laws of Passion (2) has numerous problems: Dana's tough personality makes Marc seem wimpy, the story's myriad plot points often fail to connect and the ending is easy to predict.
