    One thought on “Send Flowers”

    1. John doesn't want to leave his wife and return to the office. He's a manager in a pharmaceutical company and the work load is very demanding, especially now that they've discovered and are developing a much needed cure for a very rare and deadly disease. Little does John know the chain of events that will lead him further away from his home and the one he loves: the fire that destroys the lab, the arsonist whom he unwittingly saves, the politics of making and selling drugs and the deeply crooked [...]

    2. Tense thriller. Crisp dialogue, vivid scenes, plenty of action. I read this in three days and went straight into the next book. Relationship between Raquel and John is fun and relatable. Conflict between CIA contractors and progressive congressman is believable and chilling. Really enjoyed this one.

    3. Fast paced. Lots of action. Realistic and relatable characters. Plausible conspiracy grounded in reality. Its not about politics but to be clear the progressive freshman congressman is one of the good guys and the republican senator is one of the bad guys. If that sounds right to you, then you're going to like this book. I couldn't put it down.

    4. Got a recommendation to read book 2 and decided to read this first. Fun read. Keeps moving. Plenty of action mixed with realistic D.C. intrigue. Reminded me of eary Clancy or Ludlum but with current events. FYI - The next book is fun too.
