3.5 stars - ok after first chapter
on 22 January 2014
I give this 3.5 stars as not quite worth 4. Try and get past the prologue of an 80 year old skeleton in a "cellar" (which
was explained eventually) and the first chapter (unnecessary), where Bill races his car in traffic against a pretty female.
I almost didn't bother after that, but glad I did. The female, Julie, later turns up at Bill's office to ask for help.
I never did understand exactly what Bill did about people's money problems as he always protested it wasn't "money laundering".
Anyway, Julie has stolen 2 million dollars from a mafia-type Texan. She and Bill fast become lovers and go on the run
together from the criminal's henchmen. As the man wanted his money back, I couldn't understand why his men kept trying to
kill Julie - hence not 4 stars.
A gun toting friend agrees to help Bill and Julie and from then on the action and pace increase. However, Bill knows that
Julie is holding a lot of information back - which always annoys me - though I suppose it makes the story! So can he trust her?
The skeleton in the prologue is traced back to an 80 year old mystery, and the end of the book is explosive.
I would probably read this book again some time, and the next in the series. There were no graphic sex scenes and not much
