MY REVIEW OF In the Shadow of Greed
(Previously published on Wordpress)
I’ve been reading a lot of romantic suspense lately and In the Shadow of Greed by Nancy C. Weeks http://nancycweeks.com/ will be a hard book to beat.
ABOUT THE BOOK (taken from the publisher’s website)
|I'm a link - click me!|
Brilliant cryptologist Dr. Sarah Tu races against time to block the most dangerous Internet malware ever created, a botnet called QUALNTO. While Sarah is closed off in her computer lab, her sister, Hanna, is brutally attacked and left in a coma. As Sarah reels greedwith guilt over not being there for her sister, a web of deception closes in, threatening her and everyone she loves.
Hanna’s condition is misleading. In her coma state, she is able to build a psychic bridge with FBI Special Agent Jason McNeil. Her cryptic messages plague Jason to keep Sarah safe.
Tough and street-smart Jason McNeil doesn’t believe in visions or telepathic messages, and he fights the voice inside his head. His first impression of Dr. Sarah Tu is another stiletto wearing ice-dragon on the war path―until he witnesses her façade crumble after seeing her sister’s bloody, tortured body. Jason’s protective instinct kicks in. He falls for Sarah―hard.
When an extremely dangerous arms dealer and cybercriminal discovers that Sarah blocked his botnet, he kidnaps Sarah. Placed in an impossible position, will she destroy the botnet to protect national security or release it to save the man she loves?
There is so much heartbreak in this book – it just about tore me apart – but it also instantly connected me to Sarah and Jason. The action is intense. I’ll admit that I couldn’t follow a lot [any] of the technical jargon but with a hero like Jason and all of his yummy brothers, I really didn’t mind it at all!
I’m going to take a break from reading suspense for a while. I need it after this last stretch of books – phew!
In the Shadow of Greed is available now!
