    "interestingly different"

    Definitely on my list of books to read again. I started off reading Johansen's Eve Duncan books and frankly got tired of the plots - it was good to find that she had other more interesting characters to write different plots with. This one had me thinking of Koontz's style of writing.

    "Another Great Johansen book"

    One of the things I especially love about Iris Johansen is the way characters you have met in previous books show up in the current book or provide background for the current characters. Firestorm was an excellent read. I can't wait to see where Kerry and Silver will turn up next!

    "Narrator is great, female lead is weak"

    The narration of this book was excellent. Never sleepy and well paced and varied. The plot and character depth took a pleasant twist from near the beginning which was great because I was skeptical when the book began (initially wondering "is that all there is?").

    One disappointment was with the main character. She didn't ever make me sympathize with her or even want her to succeed. Many times she came off as one-dimensionally defiant and at the same time never really knows what to do (no plan of her own) which just added up to annoying for me.

    The rest of the characters and the first rate narration make up for this and help make this a pretty good book instead of the excellent one it could have been if the female lead was either made brighter or a better decision maker.
