Summary of this Book...
This is a book about a cop who finds himself on the run from the FBI and some seriously bent cops. There was so much promise in this book. I read — and loved — both ‘Gideon’ and ‘Icarus.’ So I had really high hopes for this book. Unfortunately, they all fell flat. There were parts of this book that were exciting, took my breath away. Mostly, though, I found myself wanting to reach the end. And not because I couldn’t wait to see who was behind Aphrodite, and what Aphrodite actually was (or, who). I just didn’t feel the suspense build up. Even the big reveal near the end was understated and predictable. The final twist, though, just when you think it’s all over, was superb.

My favourite thing about this book was the relationship between Justin and Deena. Kendall was also a cool addition.

All in all, this book was okay. That’s probably as good as I can say.
This type of Book is good for...
People who love conspiracy-style thrillers.
I especially liked...
The characters. Justin is a good man who does the right thing, even though his choices are hard to make. Deena and Kendall are light, which is nice.
I didn't like...
The lack of a bang at the end. It fell flat. That said, it also didn't do a great job of building the tension. Which is a shame because normally Andrews is really good at that.
This Book made me feel...
A little disappointed. At times, excited. Flat.
The author of this Book...
Russell Andrews. The author has published five novels in the genre under the pen name of Russell Andrews. I've read the first two, and they were infinitely better than this one.
I recommend this Book because...
It's okay. The characters are good to read.
I don't recommend this Book because...
It doesn't fulfil its potential. It's a little boring at times.
