Abby Cooper's next mission may truly be impossible....
Abby Cooper, the FBI's newest civilian profiler, is adding "spy" to her resume. The military's digital photography software that captures one's aura - just like Abby can - sits in a drone aircraft that's been stolen. It's a major breach in security, as every country's leader can be identified by their aura.... Abby springs into action to stop the criminals before they set their diabolical plan into motion, while making herself a prime target.

College Student that loves to listen to audio books!!!
The psychic eye mystery series is awesome! I have listened to all of them thus far and have loved them all. The narrator does a great job telling a good story. Although I would still recommend this listen, this story got a little confusing at times and almost had too much going on. Especially in the beginning setting the scene. Once you get past all the set up, the book unfolds nicely.
Blogger, audiobook lover, and all around cool chic!
Abby Cooper goes International baby! Joining the CIA along with Dutch in a secret undercover mission, Abby gets in way over her head with this job ;) Abby has no idea what the CIA will be asking her to do until she's knee deep in it! With Abby being such a horrible liar, weak stomach for violence, and an overly sensitive psyche, it's pretty comical that she accepted the mission at all!
Dutch and Abby are whisked off to get briefed and trained by the CIA for this mission. They are to retrieve the information from known associates of a bad dude, while impersonating said bad dude, off of a machine that is very important and dangerous in the wrong hands, and steal it back, all while not getting killed. Are you kidding me?? If that didn't strike you with hilarity then it should of strike you with horror!
So the “in” for these two are: Dutch is going to take the identity of this bad guy who was recently arrested and being held in another country for being bad. This guy is awful! He has a bad gambling habit and debt, he only dates bimbos, and he likes to dominate and beat his women! Abby is going in as bad dude's bimbo girlfriend! So Abby is suppose to act, stupid, slutty, and obedient... we all know how that went, right?! So after Abby screwed that up and switched to being his business partner, (which had me rolling in laughter) things straightened up a bit, but not for long.
The Wonder Twins get deeply involved with their story, and start building connections and relations to get the scoop on where the stolen device is, and that makes for some interesting side characters. First one that dominates when she is around is Mandy. Mandy is the real life bad dudes girlfriend, but when Dutch and Abby figured her being around would just cramp the mission, they tried to get rid of her by him dumping her. That didn't work so well, LOL! Mandy becomes an intricate part of the story now. Mandy was true to form with being dumb as a rock, but not when it comes to money.
The fact that Abby and Dutch didn't end up dead was just pure dumb luck, and maybe a little of Abby's intuition. I really enjoyed this aspect of Abby and Dutch's lives because it took them out of their element, (home base) and they really had to stay in tune with each other and work on their professional skills in order to stay alive. Plus there was a bonus sumthin' sumthin' with Abby and one of the bad guys, wink ;) This was an awesome ride with the duo, and I can't wait to see what the future holds for them!
Narrator Elizabeth Michaels continues to do a wonderful job :)
I am sticking with the series but Abby is getting really annoying and I find myself many times thinking how stupid can she be?
The author took Abby way too far away from her psychic roots. I liked the fact that Abby was a psychic who fought crime, not a crime fighter who was psychic. And there was just too much going on in Canada for me.
This book takes Abby in a totally different direction and that's not a bad thing at all. The beginning dialog was somewhat annoying because I kept wanting the author to just get on with it instead of being very redundant. Once past that, it became more interesting though and my faith has been renewed. I will jump on board for the next adventure and see where it goes.
This story leaves me yawning and my mind wandering. Even the narrator gave up trying to do something with it. All the character voices sound the same. The "My fiancé" line is used ad nauseam.
Victoria, for your information, U.S. $1,000,000.00 equals Can.$ 915,818.20 at today’s rate (August 08, 2014). Not quite at par but close. In this case you would round up, not down to half a million. https://www.google.ca/#q=1%2C000%2C000+canadian+dollars+equals+how+many+u.s.+dollars%3F
I am someone who enjoys audible books very much now that they exist. As a young student (real young) I can remember a teacher telling me how books can transport people to different places & open up a whole new world. This is how listening to audible books make me feel. Now if I can just stop falling asleep while listening to them at night I would be fine. Ha ha
The way the people involved finally started to work together, & i do mean together
THe killer villlain at the end
THis book suprised me & educated me at the same time. You never know what some people will do when they are pushed to the brink
