Given to me at the UnConvention by AliceF to start off the ring. It's a brand spanking new book, and I'm almost afraid to open it in case I am the first one to crease the spine! *lol* Ah well, it can't be helped, I suppose. I'll read this after I've finished the one or two rings I have to send on first.

Thanks for sharing!

Journal Entry 3 by katie1980 from Basingstoke, Hampshire United Kingdom on Wednesday, August 09, 2006
I'm sure I've read this book before! But I couldn't remember how it ended, so it was fine really! *lol* It's not one of her best books, but it's quite suspenseful and the story generally moves along at a good pace so it's enjoyable enough. (I'm currently listening to "Body Double" on CD in the car, and that's a really good book!) I can't really fault the book, as such, as it's all believable enough and the story is good, as I said, but there's not that 'spark' for me that said I would really enjoy it.
This sounds a little negative, which I don't mean it to - it's a good book, honest! I'm not really damning it with faint praise! (Even if that is how I seem to have managed to word my JE!)

Thanks for sharing, and I will post this book on when I have an address to send it to. Luckily, it only took me a couple of days to read once I picked it up!

Received in the post yesterday from Katie1980. I've got a couple of other rings ahead of this but looking forward to reading this as I'm a Tess Gerritsen fan now.

Journal Entry 5 by calalilly from Waterlooville, Hampshire United Kingdom on Tuesday, October 10, 2006
I agree with Katie1980 that this is not one of her best books, but as a Tess Gerritsen fan I still enjoyed it. Will send this off to Beekeeper as soon as I have her address.

Received safely today. Will read it very soon.

Journal Entry 7 by beekeeper40 from Hoveton, Norfolk United Kingdom on Thursday, November 02, 2006
Like the other journallers I thought Gerritsen's other books were better. However after a slow start I really got into it but thought the romance side of it a bit 'icky'. I think Gerritsen would be best sticking to police procedure and medical thrillers rather than espionage.

Pming WelshHelen.

Arrived safely a couple of days ago. Thanks, beekeeper40 and sorry for the late JE. I do have a few ring books ahead of this one but should get to it pretty soon.

Journal Entry 10 by WelshHelen from Ponthenri, Wales United Kingdom on Sunday, November 26, 2006
Having enjoyed Tess Gerritsen's other books I was really looking forward to this but was sadly disappointed. For a long time, I thought that it was based in the current time but I got completely thrown out of the story when an "East German checkpoint" was mentioned and then later on, the Berlin Wall. Eh?

It was a very old-fashioned book - fun in its own way but nothing new. There were cliched characters, cliched situations, a cliched ending. What a disappointment :-( Also, if I'd bought this book I'd have been very irritated that the actually story was only 250 pages - the book was padded out with over 70 pages of excerpts of her next two books and ads for others!

Thank you for sharing, AliceF. I have BigBoss' address and will post to him in the next couple of days.

Posted to BigBoss today.

Journal Entry 12 by BigBoss from Rochester, Kent United Kingdom on Monday, December 04, 2006
Received today. Slightly nervous about everyone's review. I will read it straight away and send on to
chelseagirl.

Journal Entry 13 by BigBoss from Rochester, Kent United Kingdom on Sunday, December 10, 2006
Just finished my 5th read by Tess, and whilst I can see it is not as polished as some of her others I was equally pleased. It reminded me of The Broker by John Grisham.
Once I picked it up it was hard to put down so I just read it through, yet another good read by Tess!

I will now forward it on to chelseagirl.

On its way to chelseagirl.

Sorry I haven't journalled to say this arrived safely - don't know what happened there! many thanks, and for ther Transitas radio - though i can't work out how to get the batteries in!

Journal Entry 16 by chelseagirl from Faringdon, Oxfordshire United Kingdom on Wednesday, January 10, 2007
I got into this really quickly and rea dtwo thirds of it in almost one go, but then found the excitement tailed off a little towards the end.

An enjoyable enough romp, though as others have said Gerritsen should stick to the murder books as the Jane Rizzoli novels are far better than the two espionage ones I've read!

Thanks for sharing, and I'll get this off to Rillaith asap.
