BOOK REVIEW- Deja Vu #19 SISTERHOOD
Thanks to a presidential pardon, the Sisterhood can put their fugitive days behind them and resume their lives in peace. Still, all the women admit that lately things are a little too calm and peaceful. Meeting up for the first time in months to celebrate Kathryn's birthday--in the City of Sin, no less--seems like the perfect antidote.
But before they can kick up their heels something too big to pass up is dropped into their laps. The time has come to deal with Enemy #1, a/k/a Hank Jellicoe. Wanted by the FBI, the CIA, and Homeland Security for starters, President Connor herself has run out of patience with their lack of results. Only the Sisterhood, with their special blend of guts, imagination, and friends in all places are capable of pulling off the impossible--of hunting down this monster and taking him out once and for all. . .AMAZON 4.5 stars
I really liked this one. It could have been titled," Jellicoe Bites the Dust." Only he doesn't go easy and it makes for a wild ride. I mean the Sisters had thought that they had put an end to his shenanigans the first time they caught him. But this time they did it for sure. It made for the edge of the seat, involved reading. I read it in one setting. I think I liked this book better because the Sisters were back in sync again, they had their mojo back. Another good detail is the guys called the ladies of the way that they have been treating their guys. They felt used, called in when needed and then scuttled aside, not allowed into the main circle of planning. It was past time for them to bring that up. I mean those guys were there for them every time, often taking some pretty serious risks.
I was also relieved to see that all the whining and crying about how the vigilantes lives went down the drain after the pardons, is over. They really needed to face it, it wasn't the pardons that messed them up, I mean place the blame were its earned. Greed and Hank Jellicoe. And they finally do, make him pay that is. But there still is trouble in all the "girls" relationships when it comes to the guys. Some of them look like they finally might be working out, some are still in process. Maggie and her longtime friend and hacker superman, Abner Tookus (what a name by the way) have a SERIOUS falling out. Even Maggie is surprised by her own reaction to that.
There are some surprise and fun references to the T.V. series "Burn Notice" and even the Red Hat Society comes into play. And everything and everyone the Sisters touch benefit big and in unexpected ways. Well everyone except the bad guys.
