Wow, what a roller coaster! A bomb disrupts an ultra running race. A stunned runner is injected as she lies in the dirt. A cruise ship is threatened by Somali pirates. A Senator postures (so what else is new??) at a hearing about a security contractor. A pharmaceutical company’s plane explodes. And that’s just the beginning. For a second book, this is impressive. I’ll give it a reluctant 4 because of a few frustrating plot fizzles…but get to know this author, she should be around for a long time.
