Awesome book for fans.

Starts with a female assassin who is taken by the future and then deposited near ten years later in seattle. It follows her through quarantine before jumping into a later part of the first series, after which the 4400's abilities have become a well known phenomenom. The assassin decides to forego her previous life by eradicating all her cia contacts, while adhereing to communications from the inner reaches of her mind to take out 4400 targets who will disturb the greater plan of the future. On her tail are tom and diana, the tv series regular ntac agents charged with investigating the 4400 people, abilities and their effect on the world. There is also a side story involving a potential cell of the nova 4400 terrorist group.

I think even people who havent seen the series may potentially enjoy this book, thanks to it starting at the beginning of the season plot. Well better than the so-so vesuvius project book.

After reading the first of The 4400 books,I decided to continue the saga and read the next.Having still not finished watching the final season I hoped that it might help enlighten me prior to finish the series.The book is easy to read and goes a steady pace,so is exactly as my title says.If you are looking for answers however,this book dangles none.Even so I enjoyed it and would recommend it as a stand alone title.

A Fair Addition To The 4400 Saga 2 Sep 2012
By Orion E. Hubbard - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Being a major fan of the series, I am always on the lookout for books and stories that would tell us what we missed after the crappy way the network killed the series without warning. Unfortunately Wet Work is set in season one-- or is it season two-- and right there we have a problem: the story is set immediately after all the 4400 has been sent back but instead of Dennis Ryland running the show at NTAC, it's suddenly Nina Jarvis. To someone who has never seen the show before, that would mean nothing but to a dedicated fan it would be a glaring-- and annoying-- plot hole.

The story and the writing is otherwise good quality, and it gives us a glimpse into Tom Baldwin's past,those tiny plotholes, or maybe I should say continuity errors, makes it look to me like the authors didn't actually see the show unlike the author of Promises Broken who's book was seemiingly flawless. Maybe I'm just being picky, and no one else will find problems with Wet Work-- it is a pretty good story-- but it could have been so much better too with the right editing.

Wonderful Addition to the 4400 Series 13 Nov 2008
By SciFiChick - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In 1992, Lona Callahan, an assassin known as the Wraith, disappeared without a trace. 13 years later, Lona finds that she was abducted and returned, along with 4399 other people, with no memory of missing years. But when CIA agents try to pick Lona up for a long-overdue debriefing, she decides to go her own way. And Lona is surprised to discover she has an amazing power. But soon it becomes clear that she was given a purpose to fulfill. One that seems impossible to ignore.

Baldwin and Skouris get assigned to the case, when a CIA official is assassinated and fingers are pointed toward the Wraith. And the CIA opens up about who the Wraith is, in order to save other operatives from being killed by Lona. But capturing this 4400 won't be easy. Besides being a professional assassin, Lona has an incredible power that makes her faster than the eye can see.

Since the groundbreaking show was cancelled, The 4400 story is being carried along in novel form. And as an avid fan, I have been pleasantly surprised with the books so far. Wet Work doesn't continue after the last season. Instead, the story takes place while Ryland is still director of NTAC.

With intrigue, adventure, suspense, and cool super powers, this is an exciting addition to the 4400 series. Fans will definitely be pleased. Stories like this is what made the show great.
a good story with a strange set- up 4 Mar 2014
By Craig - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
The story opens with a political assassination. then it jumps ahead 12 years and focuses (mostly) on hunting the killer. the story is interesting but tends to jump around a lot. characters come and go randomly making the story kind of hard to follow. the ending has an odd twist that I think could have been written differently because it left me scratching my head.
If you're a fan of the show I would say check this out only because these books are the only way to get more details.
Very suspenseful 8 Jan 2014

I really enjoyed the series and hope the authors of Wet Works" follow through with additional books. Matthew Ross was an interesting character in the TV show but was not fully developed. Wet works ends with an introduction to just how evil he really was. I want more.

Thank you.

It's been awhile since I've taken part in the 4400 world but I recently started a job where I have some time to read and that's all I'm allowed to do with free time. Not so bad since this book was a good story, characters stayed true to the show. Well written and interesting story.
