Other Books In The Series: Split Second

Nowhere is safe for Charlie and Nat. They have each other, but Roman Riley's networks could reach them at any time. Charlie believes the only option is to go undercover in Riley's team, and sneaks away from Nat to pursue her plan alone. Nat is desperate to find Charlie, but his family are in danger and Riley is coming ever closer. Even if Nat and Charlie can find each other again, could being together be even more dangerous than being apart . . .?

What I Have To Say

I'm really not sure which I preferred, this book or the first. I feel that the ending of this one was a lot better. It was really tense and gripping. A book that demands your attention until it's over.

I adored how manipulative Roman was. How everything was part of his plans and Charlie and Nat could do nothing but play into his hands.

The ending was perfect as well. It was just the right balance of satisfying and accepting the least bad option. If it had been an ending where everything turned out brilliantly and the country ended up in the hands of someone who would do everything right, it would just have undermined the honesty and realism that both books presented.

Like it or not, there is no perfect government.
