Tate has been out of “the business” for three years, after a horrific experience overseas. Lately she’s been satisfied with her life, alone in her cabin with a brand new career. Things are looking up indeed until one night when she hears noises and slips back into “spy” mode, only to find her worst nightmare on her doorstep – Derek Cole, her ex-boss, drugged, beaten and semi-conscious.
Derek Cole has noticed things are changing in the agency where he works, and not necessarily for the better. The problem is he can’t figure out who is behind the changes and what it all means. To make matters worse, he receives a message from one of his former agents that supposedly died three years prior. Now he has to convince Tate to assist him, all the while trying to keep his mind on the task at hand!
Donna Kauffman’s Let Me In is the story of two wounded, both physically and emotionally, people who has been “alone” for a very long time and find their way to each other, under the worst possible circumstances. As much as I wanted to love this book, I just couldn’t! The genre is right up my alley, the concept had such potential and the main characters were fantastic but after wading through the “information overload”, all I wanted was for the book to end. I still had to get through more “info overload” and the not-so-mysterious mystery. Also, I couldn’t help but notice there were several inconsistencies in the book, which really had me scratching my head. All in all, Ms Kauffman has written better books.
