Readers have come to expect excellence from Neggers, and she delivers it here. The pairing of aristocratic spy Will with butt-kicking heroine Lizzie is inspired, and the multistrand plot is extremely absorbing.

The second time British
intelligence officer Will Davenport sees hotelier Lizzie Rush, she's engaged
in hand-to-hand combat with a knife-wielding man. The thug's been sent to kill the fiancee of Will's good friend, FBI agent Simon Cahill -- and he gives up information about a bombing in Boston just in time to save the lives
of other people dear to Simon.

However, they can't prevent the kidnapping of FBI director John March's daughter, Abigail Browning. Just who is Lizzie Rush, and what's her game? Will intends to find out, and to stop
her from interfering in the case any further. What Will doesn't know is that Lizzie is March's secret informant,
and she's been feeding him useful information about billionaire criminal Norman Estabrook for a long time. It's information that could cost her dearly if Estabrook learns about Lizzie's betrayal. (MIRA, Jul., 352 pp., $24.95)

This book is not a stand

Submitted by brenda potter on August 20, 2010 - 5:12pm.

This book is not a stand alone story & I highly recommend reading The Widow & The Angel first. A good portion of this book is reacquainting the reader with characters in the previous books, their history & connections to this story. These titles should have been published closer together & advertised as a trilogy or quadrilogy as the next book, The Whisper is yet another continuation.
