But when a team of assassins sweeps through the firm, stealing all files and killing her coworkers, Dani narrowly escapes. Whoever ordered the strike thinks Dani has vital information and they put a hit man named Booker on her trail.

    Story
    "An unexpected pleasure"

    I was not sure what to expect from this novel. I often grow impatient with "getting to the story." The beginning held a lot of good exposition that was helpful later.

    This is not high art. However, it was fun. I really liked that, [SPOILER ALERT?] "man wrongly accused" is threatened early on in the book that the author does not take us down that well-worn path of laziness.

    I found that the book had a good pace, decent character development, and the ending did not leave me unhappy in the least. It was a conclusion, a reasonable one with regard to the "inherent truth" of the story.

    I recommend it.

    Story
    "Chick version of 6 days of the condor"
    What did you like best about The Widow File? What did you like least?

    I liked the story plot. It was very reminiscent of the Condor but with a girl lead.


    Would you recommend The Widow File to your friends? Why or why not?

    probably not


    What three words best describe Tanya Eby’s performance?

    The narrator was very good, though I thought her male voices were a little off. She made them sound dumb.


    Could you see The Widow File being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I could easily see it as a tv movie. With some serious story rework, maybe a feature film.


    Any additional comments?

    I gave the book 3 stars, because it was ok. It wasn't horrible and it wasn't great. The idea was derivative but what isn't. I actually liked the idea of the girl being the lead character, though the story was quite predictable. It was ok for light entertainment. Don't look for more than that.
