How this novel got a close to a 4 star review is beyond me The plot had great potential, but the book ended up being just plain boring The action part of the book is all talk but NO ACTION And all the talk is about BOATS and YACHTS Reading this book was like reading a manual on operating heavy machinery boats , and i wonder how this was not an issue with everyone 20 pages at a time about how the engine purrs , how the ropes are tied, how to navigate it through still and stormy waters How this novel got a close to a 4 star review is beyond me The plot had great potential, but the book ended up

to watch out for obstacles LOGS Who cares If I wanted to read up on navigating yachts properly I would have gotten a do it yourself book, not a romance thriller One word BOOOOOOORRRRIIINGGGG As for the romance no chemistry can be felt , despite a lot of talk about it overall poorly executed novel.And just onething had the author spent just a tiny portion of time used on useless yacht boat navigation info on researching OTHER topics, the book would berealistic Just an example Russian Georgian Soviet names Tarik, Temori, Taras, Amanar What Maybe Turkish, Afgan, Albanian, Arabic But Slavic russian no Elizabeth Lowell s newest novel Death Echo has the detail, characters, and intrigue that fans of her work will enjoy However, the plot drags along under the weight of just too much

time Lowell s complex background and details get her in trouble Instead of playing up the romance between her two characters or the threat of danger, she dives into the world of yachting, political agencies, and smuggling rings, which confuse and weigh down the reader and the plot.While this is definitely not one of Lowell s best books, the sharply drawn characters and fast dialogue will keep you reading despite the slow parts This was a phenomenally bad book made evennotable by the fact that Elizabeth Lowell is usually quite competent and often fantastic I continued reading mostly out of the belief that at some point the writing would turn and things would magically resolve The romantic element of the plot was phoned in with a few flirty lines that somehow became intense passion and a soul connection The suspense plot was overly complex and the resolution was somehow both too pat and murky Interspersed with This was a phenomenally bad book made evennotable by the fact that

murky Interspersed with all this were insanely long and detailed accounts of all things motor boating as well as one brief but painful foray into how to make your own radiation detector using household items that was just odd I came away from the book with the distinct impression that it had been written as a group project with a distinct lack of editing If you want to read a much better novel by Elizabeth Lowell that also features a motor boat well done and a reasonable suspense and romantic element, I would suggest Jade Island Let me say first that I fell in love with E Lowell after picking up Blue Smoke Murder 2 yrs ago Since then I ve read all of the Rarities Unlimited, St Kilda, Donovans, plus a fewHer characters are well drawn, the plots are solid, though admittredly formulaic, and the dialog is superb In this book the characters are somehow, not quite finished The romance portion of the story is, unfortunately, thrown in as if an afterthought I liked the plot, not being a bad guys chasing good guy Let me say first that I fell in love with E Lowell after picking up Blue Smoke Murder 2 yrs ago Since then I ve read all of the Rarities Unlimited, St Kilda,

portion of the story is, unfortunately, thrown in as if an afterthought I liked the plot, not being a bad guys chasing good guys , but the good guys putting the bad guys on the run From the middle of the book on, it was compelling Her denouements are typically riveting, but perhaps I m getting a bit jaded, because there was no suspension of disbelief at all If you are a fan, you ll still enjoy this book, although it isn t her best work And, btw, if you are a Joe Faroe fan, you will be happy The dialog in this book does NOT disappoint I was laughing out LOUD If you are just discovering this author, start with another book by her She s great I had a bit of trouble keeping the bad guys straight, but the Hero and Heroine s stories and characters were great I especially liked the hero, who drives a yacht. I enjoyed book four in this series, and this one was available from the library so I went for it But it didn t grab me like the previous one did Mostly, there was a lot about boats I found myself only half listening a lot of the time, which was not a good approach with the level of detail involved in this story much of it concerning boats This one was just not my cup of tea. Dissatisfied with the work she was doing with the CIA, Emma Cross gets a job with a private security consultant firm looking for stolen yachts MacKenzie Duran, special ops agent turned boat salesman, are forced to work as a team to find the ship used by terrorists who are planning a lethal attack I enjoyed the cloak and dagger Beth Mcdonald was not the voice of the characters. I really liked this book I m usually a person who watches tv shows about these murder mysteries or crime investigation This book was about a girl named Emma Cross who was a former CIA agent She is set out to investigate other crimes with her partner Mackenzie Durand The story talks about there day to day experience to catch the criminals If you are interested in these types of books, then I recommend this to you.
