Brilliant, quirky twenty-three-year-old China Mack is totally satisfied with her carefully ordered, data-driven life. A computer prodigy who landed a coveted programming job at the cutting-edge tech company Cysnet before even graduating from MIT, China is happiest when following her routine: shower before coffee, pizza only on Mondays, bedtime at ten thirty sharp.
But then things start to get a little…unpredictable.
First Jackson Cooper—Cysnet’s rich, gorgeous, genius CEO—assigns China to a dangerous and highly classified project for a government defense contractor. Her sixteen-year-old runaway niece suddenly arrives in town, begging to move in with China. And then there’s her sexy but oddly unsettling new neighbor, Clark…
Quickly the Cysnet assignment becomes disconcerting—and then downright scary—as key staffers turn up dead. China suspects she’s being followed and isn’t sure whom she can trust. For the first time ever, she’ll have to follow her instincts, rather than logic, if she’s going to survive.
I absolutely LOVE Tiffany Snow! She is one of the few authors I preorder with no hesitation, every time a new book comes out. I’ve been a fan of hers since the first book I read and I’ve read them all. All are well-written and keep readers on the edge of their seats. This book is no exception. I think China may become one of my favorite heroines written by Tiffany. China is brilliant with computers and not so hot with humans with their colloquialisms, double-speak, and body language. As a result of China’s intellect, the book was written brilliantly – the “big words” are not dumbed-down for the “average” reader. China is hilariously blunt and a bit OCD, which makes it even more fun when she starts twitching when her schedule (or shirt organization) changes. This book kept me hooked from the start and guessing through most of it. The amount of twists and turns and who can I trust is breath-taking. I figured out some but not all of the mystery. Tiffany is a masterful story-teller and I can’t wait for the next book in this series comes out.
