The Blonde > Wiki


Swierczynski chronicles a long, frenzied and near-fatal night in Philadelphia in his fast-paced if far-fetched sophomore effort (after 2005'sThe Wheelman). The narrative cuts back and forth between journalist Jack Eisley, who's poisoned at a Philadelphia airport bar by the beautiful blonde of the title, Kelly White; and Mike Kowalski, a supersecret operative for a covert government agency, who must find a scientist who has gone into hiding—in order to kill him, and bring back his head—and take Kelly into custody as well. The common thread: a dangerous nanotechnology tracking device. Mike's handlers are interested, and Kelly is infected with the nanites that will automatically cause her to kill if she's left alone. Hence her decision to dose Jack and keep him shackled to her with the promise of an antidote. Rapid-fire pacing, hard-boiled dialogue and excellent local color make up for the unlikely twists and turns of this entertaining thriller.(Nov.)

Those three words are the last ones in this roler coaster ride of a book. I won't give away anything of the plot, for that would really spoil the reading entertainment for the next person down the line. What I will say is this book will keep you up late turning pages until its finished, and then you will be left wanting more.    The writng is good, the characters well defined and the action non-stop. Perhaps for some the underlying basis for the plot is unrealistic, but I believe …
