Book Description

“A chill ran up her spine, triggering an alarm that spread through her system. Her eyes studied him as his eyes studied her. In the recesses of her mind, a fragment of a memory tingled…a tiny blip from long ago. An image spiraled, then vanished. There was something about this young man, this Ari Ben Aviv. There was something about him she couldn’t pinpoint.”

On the heels of her last mystery, Elisabeth’s new patient is more than meets the eye, and unraveling his secrets will throw her team into a desert storm of double agents and religious extremists. All that stands between love and war are two families, two brothers, and two conflicting versions of the truth.

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

I had read Relentless by Nancy J. Alexander and it was a good psychological thriller so I was looking forward to reading Seeing Double. Although the books have Elisabeth Reinhardt in common, they are quite different. I did learn quite a bit more about Elisabeth than I did in the first book.

It was difficult to figure out this book at the beginning. It jumped from one situation to another and there were so many characters that it was hard to keep up let alone stay interested. Eventually it all came together but I’m not sure that everyone would stick with it to figure it all out. I recommend that they do because it does end up being worth it. The ending just seemed to stop with issues unresolved. I’m guessing that means there’s another one to come.

I found Nancy J. Alexander’s descriptions of scenes and characters good but I definitely liked Relentless better. I look forward to reading another book by the author in hopes that she goes back to the psychological thriller she does so well. 

 

Meet the Author:

 

Love of the mystery/thriller genre combines with psychotherapy training and experience to produce an emotionally supercharged dramatic novel. Nancy Alexander has devoted much of her professional life to helping survivors of childhood trauma; their distress has been ingrained and works to create characters who give voice to their plight. To analyze the evil minds that prey on others and the intricacies of law enforcers who pursue them seemed a natural interlacing of professional, literary and creative interests.

The Walker Library

23 May

A visit to the Walker Library of the History of Human Imagination is a celebration of human invention. The Library contains some 20,000 volumes and hundreds of museum-level books, manuscripts, maps and artifacts. These precious objects are housed in a unique setting that is itself a work of art. The architecture of the vast room was inspired by the mind-bending designs of artist M.C. Escher; it features multilevel tiers, “floating” platforms, connecting stairways, a glass bridge, illuminated glass panels, dynamic lighting, and specially commissioned art and music. 

This library is found at Walker Digital, a company that invents solutions to large-scale problems for businesses.
