Book #19–Spree

51mXn4fQSHL._SL160_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-dp,TopRight,12,-18_SH30_OU01_AA160_I love Joe Konrath. He’s not for everyone, and he’s a little silly, but I enjoy his books. The  Chandler series hooked me right away, with a fast pace as a secret agent is pursued through Chicago, getting into, and out of, impossible situations. Spree is the middle book of a trilogy after Chandler saves London from being destroyed by a rogue nuke.

This books picks up after the last one ends, the same day with Chandler and Fleming surviving. However everything is not in order, as Chandler looks to escape from the hospital that Jack Daniels put her in and take Fleming with her. Fleming is kidnapped and the rest of the book is getting her back and stopping Hammet (the other sister) from causing more trouble.

This book has the return of characters from other books. Lund and Tequila are back, with the same wit and style, though we see Tequila more developed. It’s a wild ride across a few days, very little of it believable or possible, but very exciting.
