Room 1515

"You can't just pout and decide you don't want to play anymore" quote from Point of no Return [the movie]

Room_1515

Book Description:  International Thriller.  A female agent named Peacock is sent on a mission to woo and win the heart of the world’s most powerful powerbroker.  Her job is to learn his secrets and foil his plans. Instead, she falls in love.  A story of the balance of world financial power, betrayal, and romance.  Pour two ounces of the most powerful financier in the world.  Mix in two ounces of America's most treacherous female spy.  Stir in betrayal and love. Room 1515!

My take:

Power, greed, violence, international intrigue all fit into Room 1515.  I found Room 1515 to be a very well written CIA, financial takeover, espionage type novel.  In some ways it reminds me of the movie "Point of no Return" staring Bridget Fonda back in the 90's, as well as La Femme Nakita.

Peacock takes her job very seriously.  She moves up the ranks in the CIA to become the "top notch" female spy.  Start reading this one early or you'll find yourself up at the wee hours until you've reached that very last page.

I received this book free from the author and was asked to give my honest opinion.  I did enjoy reading Room 1515 and would read other books by Bill Wetterman.

Edge of Black



Description:
The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides...
Dr. Samantha Owens is starting over: new city, new job, new man, new life. She's trying to put some distance between herself and the devastating loss of her husband and children-but old hurts leave scars.

Before she's even unpacked her office at Georgetown University's forensic pathology department, she's called to consult on a case that's rocked the capital and the country. An unknown pathogen released into the Washington Metro has caused nationwide panic. Three people died-just three.
A miracle and a puzzle...
Amid the media frenzy and Homeland Security alarm bells, Sam painstakingly dissects the lives of those three victims and makes an unsettling conclusion. This is no textbook terrorist causing mayhem with broad strokes, but an artist wielding a much finer, more pointed instrument of destruction. An assassin, whose motive is deeply personal and far from understandable.
Xander Whitfield, a former Army Ranger and Sam's new boyfriend, knows about seeing the world in shades of gray. About feeling compelled to do the wrong thing for the right reasons. Only his disturbing kinship with a killer can lead Sam to the truth...and once more into the line of fire.
What I thought...
The description says it all...
This is my second book by J. T. Ellison and I must say she doesn't disappoint!  I found this book very easy to read and get wrapped up in, I didn't want to put it down.  The characters are well developed and realistic.  The plot and twists are perfectly timed to keep you turning the pages, all 368 of them.  I would definitely read more works by this author and highly recommend Edge of Black. You won't want to miss this one...
