    When 28-year-old Lexi Smart wakes up in a London hospital, she's in for a big surprise: Her teeth are perfect. Her body is toned. Her handbag is Vuitton. Having survived a car accident - in a Mercedes no less - Lexi has lost a big chunk of her memory, three years to be exact, and she's about to find out just how much things have changed.

    Overall

    Normally I love all the Kinsella books no matter which series. This one however just didn't do it for me. While I giggled in a few spots, I had nowhere near the normal amount of laughs I get from Kinsella's hapless characters. Maybe it's just that it wasn't that new of an idea since we have here in the US the awful Samantha Who on tv, but I found the book rather predicatable.

    Diehard Kinsella fans will probably give it a listen out of loyalty/curiousty but if you are new to this normally great author, try another book first.

    In 1987, Alex Konevitch was thrown out of Moscow University for "indulging his entrepreneurial spirit." But by 1991, he was worth $300 million. On track to become Russia's wealthiest man, he makes one critical mistake: he hires the former deputy director of the KGB to handle his corporate security. And then his world begins to fall apart.

    Story

    I have read most if not all of Brian Haig's books and I looooovvvveee Scott Brick as a narrator so I was planning to buy this when I first saw it in the catalog. Then I read the description and didn't think I was interested. So I moved on. Then I circled back around a time or two until finally one day I bought it without really paying attention.

    I'm so glad I did! The story was not what I thought it was going to be; it was so much better. Scott Brick as usual turns in a stellar performance. The plot is compelling, and sadly believable. I wasted a lot of time not reading this book - get it today and see for yourself!
