Killing Pace

2.5 stars

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

The book opens with a woman (Laura Pace) that has amnesia and is being held captive by a man that claims to be her boyfriend. She eventually regains her memories and escapes her captor, only to discover she is a wanted fugitive that has been set up for a double homicide. Laura goes on the run to clear her name and solve the international mystery that started her problems in the first place.

The story includes stolen babies from Syrian refugees, rich families trying to adopt babies, international smuggling, the Mafia, the U.N., U.S. Border Control and the Justice Department. HUH? Just.Too.Much. Rather than letting the story develop and add a few twists and turns, the author crammed too many elements, concepts and side stories into the book. The result is a rambling story that I lost interest in half way through. I’m not sure if it was the writing style or the frantic pace of the book, but I just found it annoying. Plus, the main story simply didn’t interest me.
