As he got out, shapeless forms with the parched voices of addicts whispered pleas from the night’s shadows. A bar door opened, and laughter and cigarette smoke billowed out. with the odors of dust and cooling asphalt. He wanted no problems to slow him, but the night had a ragged feel to it, as if anything desperate could happen. He pulled a bouquet of wilted flowers from a trash bin, snapped on his sunglasses, and headed off into the night with a vacant smile, as if he were mentally unbalanced

Liked the book as it was set in the present and tackled the growing globalization of our planet.
It also brought into play a secret society of wealthy and powerful individuals who took it upon themselves to determine what was best for the world without regard to unintended consequences.
A timely and unfortunately realistic situational outcome of too much power in too few hands.

Recommend reading for women only. Written from the romantic perspective of a female. Males simply do not think nor behave as this obviously female author believes they do. Interesting story, but could have been written just as effectively in half the space by editing out large and unnecessary descriptive material.

I so looked forward to reading this book. I'm a huge fan of spy thrillers, especially those with strong female leads. And The Coil was written by a woman. I should have been in heaven. I was far from it. Not quite Hell. More like Purgatory.

I was only about 20 pages in when I started debating not finishing it. It starts with a pretty good bang, then slows to go no where fast. The action comes in spurts between incredibly dull lulls.

However, my main objection has to do with the point of view or narration of the story. There is no main narrator. Just about each scene has a different narrator, some of them minor characters who are quickly killed off. The "jumping" from head to head, not only makes it confusing at times, it makes it difficult to care about or relate to any one character. So ultimately, I felt, "who cares."

Then we have the female lead, Liz. Former spy. Woman of adventure. There have been several attempts on her life and her family has been threatened. Her adamant attitude at not carrying a gun doesn't make sense. Many times, she picks up a gun only to talk herself out of carrying it. Her arguments to herself are weak. Her sense of conviction over this just doesn't hold water.

On top of that, she has a preachy and condescending attitude about violence that was very off putting. It's appearance random and inconsistent.

I could understand a character who had turned away from violence only to be forced back into a violent world. That just wasn't Liz. She came off as ambivalent about it until some scene called for a streak of conviction. I guess ultimately, the author failed in showing the reader the characters motivations.

Morever, the author's attempts at providing character background fell short. Emotions and history appeared out of nowhere to fit the situation only to just as quickly disappear. This made the characters behaviors seem irrational at times.

The attempt at romance with Simon, who is her cousin, I believe, is another story.

It took me nearly 2 weeks to get to page 175. At that point, I shelved the book and moved on to something more interesting.

Though the author explains at the end how the plot of this novel came to her mind, I do not yet know what she had in mind when she wrote The Coil

There are key elements that a great spy novel cannot afford to lack, and in The Coil you will never find, a bottomline fiery existent mystery to entice the readers, a very well strong developed character (either a lovable hero or a bad guy or both), ingenious twist and turns (I could not find even a single one), action packed suspense and a deep background research to make it believable,

Instead, The Coil exhibits and array of cardboard characters and silly situations that quickly turn into a chaotic maelstrom and at one point one gets lost and drowns in an ocean roiled with cardboard characters, cities and situations, most of them similar in substance, (and wonders - what is the author after ?), and with this scheme the story plods along all the way to the end

In addition, language and dialogues are very poor and there is neither climate nor emotion

I thought, I just had found a lovable spy book in the line of Frederic Forsyth blockbusters but made a big mistake.

This and all of Gayle Lynds' books are EXCELLENT. She has an imagination with the best of them, and is a wordsmith worth the attention.

Even those she has written under other writers titles, like Ludlum, are excellent. It is a shame she has not written more.
In my opinion, Gayle Lynd is THE BEST female writer in the action/thriller genre. THE BEST.

Mr_Mix
Good book! Good ending and gives the characters a road to move on to. This is the second book by Liz Sansborough I've read. Enjoyed them both!!

Tegore
I loved the character of Liz and her need to break away from the senseless violence. A fast thrill ride!

I really liked the story. I hope there are more books in this series.
