From Publishers Weekly
CIA agent Madison McGuire must find a high-level double agent, a "mole," who is leaking important information to the Russians in this spy thriller whose settings range from seemingly placid Geneva, site of an unlikely murder, to CIA offices in Washington, D.C., to a final confrontation at Madison's own shorefront North Carolina retreat. Unfortunately, the potentially intriguing element of a lesbian spy-hero isn't fully explored and fails to breathe life into repetitive and unimaginative writing and plotting. Williams ( Club Twelve ) peoples the book with stock thriller characters: the detail-oriented, dedicated CIA director; the beautiful, ruthless female killer; the group of diverse specialists who learn to function as a team; the patient companion--here, Madison's lover Terry--who is predictably drawn into a dangerous cat-and-mouse game. Madison herself, who feels she was born to spying like her father before her, otherwise remains too shrouded in mystery to hold our interest. Her unremitting loyalty to and sacrifice for the CIA make her singular indeed, but ultimately less believable.
