Week 26 Review: Vendetta

From Goodreads:
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen comes a new explosive, compelling thriller.

With his dying breath, Carl Venable, head of the CIA task force on terrorism and Jude Brandon's final link to terrorist ringleader Max Huber, gives Brandon a mandate: keep his daughter, Rachel, safe at any cost. But Rachel Venable has a shocking, twisted past of her own, one that comes rushing back after her medical clinic in Guyana is attacked by Huber—the same man who murdered her father and kept her imprisoned for months. 

Brandon and Catherine Ling, Rachel's longtime ally and fierce protector, are determined to keep Rachel out of danger, but she knows that it’s impossible to stay hidden when Max Huber wants you dead.

As Rachel and Brandon race against the clock to bring Huber down before he can orchestrate a disaster that will lay waste to half the country, they also fight a growing attraction to each other – an attraction that could prove just as dangerous as Huber himself.

In this gripping, fast-paced novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen, one thing is clear: everyone has a vendetta, and no one will rest until they get their revenge.

My Review:
This book was so freaking amazing to read! Both Rachel and Brandon are new characters, at least to me, I think. We also go to check in with Catherine, which was great, and really made me want a 5th book and beyond in her series! Well, apparently this book is #5, so hopefully we'll get more!

Carl Venable was a part of the Eve Duncan series almost from the beginning. That this book almost right off the bat ends up with him dead, yeah, that was a pretty big blow. His actions, while for the greater good, meant that he didn't always get along with our lead characters, but he tried his best for the best outcome for his country. So it was sad to see him go, and we hardly had time time mourn before some pretty big action scenes.

This book, we did get some Catherine Ling POV's. It was so great to catch up with her after the events of Your Next Breath, because things aren't the way that I would've thought after that book. So yeah, that was really great to read!

I had kinda thought that the informant was going to be the second in command guy of the bad guys. I was wrong, and who it was, yeah, that came out of nowhere! And yeah, it made the ending all the more better! I need to know what's going to happen next!

This book was so awesome, I loved reading it, and I can't wait to see how the overarching universe that Iris Johansen has created will continue!
