The main character was interesting but the plot was a bit silly. While the first half of the book was original, the second half was dull. It was easy to anticipate the plot twists. Still, I listened until the end. If the author writes a second novel with the same main character, I don't think I will download it. This is a good book for the beach but not a stellar book that will leave you thinking about it long after you have finished.
Yes, actually i've already begun a second listen. I've rarely listen to a fiction book more than once but this one is that good
absolutely. great story, characters are well-developed, lots of plausible twists and turns

I could feel the personal tension of Kate- woman, mom, professional, wife- all tensions I related with. I listened repeatedly it was so good- I heard new nuances each time.
Became preposterous at times, but I still wanted to learn about the next twist.
I found the first one-third tedious and almost quit but am glad I stuck with it. Despite organizational problems it all comes together well in the end. Don't expect a female Bourne but rather a reflective perspective on life at the gray area of government-sanctioned intrigue and crime a la le Carre and you'll enjoy this many-layered story.
