The johznsen plot seemed needlessly complicated as are most things that involve Rasputin and the Romanovs which left little time to develop the many characters featured in the novel. Because everyone in Afghanistan is evil and murderous. I will admit that I have only ever read books in this genre written jobansen male authors, and a female author added a whole new dimension that I wasn’t used to. I can’t wait for the next one.

Deadlock by Iris Johansen

Totally gripping from start to finish I enjoyed this book very much and often had a hard time putting it down. Johansen’s female characters are starting to seriously get on my nerves. He has ways and means into everything Emily does.

The end was about the winners of the aforementioned final struggle planning for the future and how they should go irris things. The Ugly Duckling is probably my favorite. Her best friend and partner, Joel Levy, is always at her side — until one day her entire crew comes under attack.
