Publisher's Summary

From S. G. Redling, the author of the bestselling Flowertown, Dani a data analyst with an elite security firm, possesses the unnerving ability to read people by the trash they leave behind. Receipts, parking tickets, the detritus of daily life — if you leave it behind, she will figure you out.
Her latest case involves high-tech industrial espionage at a corporation with ties to the military. But when a team of assassins sweeps through the firm, stealing all files and killing her coworkers, Dani narrowly escapes. Whoever ordered the strike thinks Dani has vital information and they put a hit man named Booker on her trail.
Armed with only her wits and a bag of random investigation materials, Dani must figure out who the enemy really is while playing a high-stakes game of cat and mouse with the cunning hit man who has an agenda of his own.

OK, barely.

This is book 1 of the Dani Britton series. It should be listened to prior to Redemption Key - i listened to them in the wrong order. This author gives the reader/listener an absolute minimum of information about the story and the characters. It seems that the CIA believes that Dani has some information she should not have so they hire assassin Tom Booker to kill her and her coworkers.

- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"

An unexpected pleasure

I was not sure what to expect from this novel. I often grow impatient with "getting to the story." The beginning held a lot of good exposition that was helpful later.

This is not high art. However, it was fun. I really liked that, [SPOILER ALERT?] "man wrongly accused" is threatened early on in the book that the author does not take us down that well-worn path of laziness.

I found that the book had a good pace, decent character development, and the ending did not leave me unhappy in the least. It was a conclusion, a reasonable one with regard to the "inherent truth" of the story.

I recommend it.
