Sydney Rye, a London-based private investigator, wants to be free of her past. When a dangerous man from that past approaches her with a job, rescue the daughter of a powerful Mexican businessman and his politician wife, her first instinct is to refuse. But, he offers to pay her with what she really wants more than anything else in the world—finally to put the past away forever. Once she arrives in Mexico, however, her partner turns on her, and the kidnap victim turns out to be something else altogether. Suddenly, Sydney finds herself the subject of a massive manhunt; someone wants her dead. She has to use all her wits, her dog, Blue, and a network of friends and fans to survive.
Insatiable by Emily Kimelman is the third book in the Sydney Rye series, and after having read it, I’m encouraged, no, obsessed, with reading the first two. Sydney is a strong female character, not without flaws, and not incapable of feeling fear or making a mistake—but, she learns from her mistakes. Nonstop action and suspense that zips like a comet from London to the Yucatan to the Caribbean and back again, with more twists than a Coney Island roller coaster. You’ll cheer the good guys and boo the villains, until you realize that some of the good guys are villains. But, you won’t be able to put it down until you reach the end.
I give it four stars.
