Abby Cooper's next mission may truly be impossible...
Abby Cooper, the FBI's newest Civilian Profiler, is adding Spy to her resume. The military's digital photography software that captures one's aura- just like Abby can-sits in a drone aircraft that's been stolen. It's a major breach in security as every country's leader can be identified by their aura...
Abby springs into action to stop the criminals before they set their diabolical plan into motion, while making herself a prime target. ( Synopsis from Barnes & noble.com)
Victoria Laurie takes her series in a new direction in her 9th book of the Psychic Eye series. Abby Cooper and her fiancé Dutch Rivers are recruited to work with the CIA to recover a new technology weapon that has fallen into the wrong hands. Abby and Dutch will be playing with the big boys- foreign weapons dealers and crime bosses.
I have enjoyed the earlier books in this series. This book upped the violence factor and the mystery was not so much about a murder as it was focused on espionage. I missed the characters from earlier books. There was plenty of action in this book and the bad guys were really BAD. Dutch, in particular, has a tough time in this outing. Abby seems to have some doubts about setting a wedding date and there are some attraction issues with one of the baddies. There were lots of characters in this book, some of whom may turn up again in a future book if Ms. Laurie continues with the CIA involvement.
Abby's psychic crew helps in the tight situations but aren't the driving force in the book.
As mentioned before, the book is the latest in a series, but can be read by someone who hasn't read any of them and still be enjoyed.
RPL NOTES: This book is available in the Adult New Book section. The earlier books are available in the mystery section in paperback.
