Rage Against the Dying would have been a much more thrilling read if Masterman had spent more time on the story and less time developing the relationships of her characters and trying to make their lives sound interesting I found nothing particularly compelling about the relationship between the main character and her husband which eventually became just tedious. I also think that too much effort was spent trying to make the case that the above 50 segment of the population can still be sexy and enjoy sex. If anyone has any doubt about this Helen Hunt in the movie Sessions does a far better jog of making this point. The idea of a tough older woman succeeding in what is very much a macho mans world, like the FBI, could make for interesting lead character but this book didn't quite get there.
