Private investigator Hannah Franklin's life is turned upside down after being contacted by a former employee of MAX Home Security, the leader in security services. But they're not just protecting people anymore. Hannah's informant claims to have proof that MAX has ordered the assassination of politicians who stood against the corporation.
When her informant is killed and an attempt is made on her life, Hannah has no choice but to contact a freelance hacker. Her only hope now lies in the hands of a man she never expected to welcome back into her life.
Ian Bradley has lost his girlfriend and his job, as well as having acquired a very annoying gnome. Now his ex, Hannah, is in danger, and she needs his help. Ian vows to protect Hannah with every resource available to him -- and as a technomage in a high-tech world, his resources are almost endless...
This book feels rushed. There is no mystery, no time for tension to build, events happen one after the other like automatic gunfire.
Ian is basically flawless: he’s super intelligent, has magic powers, and he has all the answers. Hannah, despite being billed as a Private Investigator, does very little actual investigating. Instead she stumbled headfirst into the role of the damsel in distress and let’s Ian do all the real work. As for the gnome, he’s annoying, and serves no discernible purpose otherwise.
The sex is...unbelievable, and not in the good way. When the girl has stitches, massive blood loss, and two people have just been murdered outside the front door. It’s not the time for sex.
Overall, I can’t really recommend this one.
