a nice surprise

I wasn’t sure what to expect, but as the story unfolded I was rather pleased. Instead of relying on romance or unknown and unexpected characters it unfolds with drama and flair. The couple and their romance almost seemed a subplot to the mystery and suspence they deal with.

Mr. & Mrs. Smith

A good read without too much gratuitous sex. It's nice to see a strong female play against an equally strong male. The book is engaging and worth the read. Despite the desire to compare it to something like Mr. & Mrs. Smith, it's not. The premise of the story is good minus the fact that supposedly two legendary agents are competing for a spot with the Barbican group. Not sure why this bothers me as much as it does. However, that just doesn't seem plausible.
