HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERon 13 August 2007
Kelley Armstrong's supernatural series have varied between excellent and average. Some of her Magic and Werewolf books have been real page-turners with interesting characters.

So I had high hopes that a mainstream thriller would prove to be a gripping read. The theme of Exit Strategy sounds great; a female assassain! Hunting a rogue hitman! What's not to love?

The answer is: there's very little to love.
The characters just don't ring true. The female assassain is, frankly, just too nice to be a hit woman. Her mentor, a male hitman, is wooden. There's probably supposed to be a sexual undercurrent running between them but it's muted to the point of indifference.

And the plot is too slow. The action is dull. There's too much talkie-talkie and not enough boom-boom. The supporting characters are uninteresting and two-dimensional. The bad guys doesn't even scare me. The mid-section of the book just drags on and on... I found myself picking up magazines rather than getting on with it -- and normally I whiz through good thrillers.

So this really isn't one I can recommend, unless you are a total Armstrong fan and think you'll like a story set in the real world.
