Review--The Demeter Code by Russell Brooks

The Demeter CodeThe Demeter Code by Russell Brooks
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3.5 stars

**I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.**

Ridley Fox and Dr. Nita Parris are two of the CIAs best operatives.  They travel the world eliminating the bad guys.  When they are given an assignment that doesn't turn out as planned, their whole world is turned inside out and upside down.  Then the mission gets changed and Fox and Parris are sent in different directions.  This book has enough twists and turns to give you whiplash.

After reading the description of this book, I was very excited to read it.  I love a good thriller and this one did not disappoint.  The Demeter Code captured me from page one.  The first scene is set in Washington DC and when books are set close to home, I always am intrigued.  The book had a really great start and lots of action to keep my attention.  A little over half way through it started to slow down a bit for me.  It got more technical and I found myself reading the words without actually absorbing what it was I was reading.  That happened a couple of times which made me drop my rating from 4 to 3.5 stars.  This is the third book in the series, the first two being Pandora's Succession and Unsavory Delicacies.  I will be going back to read these books as well as his standalone Chill Run and I look forward to whatever he has coming in the future.
