The human body consists of two-thirds water.
As concertgoers on a steamy day in Boston find out, water can kill as much as it gives life.
A terrorist attack at City Hall Plaza has the authorities perplexed. The government, in response, sends in a capable but young agent – an agent born from the ashes of terrorism itself – to handle it.
But as her partner dies and the terrorist strikes again, Jaclyn Johnson – code named Snapshot – finds herself in a situation she has trained a decade to face: She’s up against a man with enough money to finance a war against his competition. With a deadline in place to stop him – and with a car holding enough hidden tricks to evade capture – Snapshot infiltrates his hidden installation and finds out her target’s true end game, a secret that could have the world fighting over water.
Model Tale - NOT!
What a string of implausible pretexts!
A lead investigator for a mass murder going undercover as a fashion model while simultaneously introducing herself to a dozen people as "Jacqlyn Johnson, CIA"? A non-clandestine domestic operation by the spooks with no FBI involvement but including Marshall's from Treasury? Lycra that turns into Kevlar with a touch of a button? Covering six Walther P99s strapped to her Lycra covered model's body with a trench coat... in the middle of a Boston heat wave? A stakeout from a Porche Spyder? A HUD (you see that term every other paragraph for the whole book) that is capable of detecting pigeons on distant roofs and rat thermals in a tunnel but TWICE fails to detect an assault from full sized men? A familial relationship between two prominent characters that would have been general knowledge to the whole world but is only revealed to the reader in the final chapter? And these are just a small sample of the problems with this book.
If you want a thoughtful thriller, look elsewhere.
If you like laughing at flawed storytelling and a preposterous yarn, this is your book.
Model Agent:A Thriller
Unreadable.....a more ridiculous spy story than any Austin Powers movie...and this is not meant to be humorous story. Old 60's
cliches and up to date political trash talk. Truly awful.
This book takes implausible to a whole new level. I muddled through for a while then decided it wasn't worth my time.
