to Europe in order to track down an important computer file containing what could be the next best thing in anti-ageing pharmaceuticals. As the pair work closely together, slowly the barriers begin to come down...
This is, quite surprisingly, a very entertaining read with fairly strong characterization and an intriguing and gripping hard-edged plot! I, for one, enjoyed this far more than I thought I would and thought it had much in common with Lary Kahn's King Of Paine but with a lot stronger injection of steamy sex scenes and a better chemistry between the two leads. For that is one thing, you should note before reading this; if graphically detailed sex scenes are not for you . There are only a few examples but when they do come (pardon the pun) then the heat really begins to boil!! Even I wasn't quite sure where to turn in places!!
Countermeasures is very good at what it sets out to do and is actually a thoroughly enjoyable read! I quickly found myself hooked, delving in to this and surely there can be no bigger recommendation! The first in a new series, many of Bauer's questions about his family are never resolved and this is a neat touch because it then means the authors can then spread the revelations about what really happened all through the rest of the series. Would I read any more? Definitely, it manages to thrill and entertain and it left me certainly wanting to experience more adventures with the characters.
