When I started the book, i was rather underestimating its power to entertain me. At first i thought it would be a normal thriller but as soon as i finished the first few chapters pf the book, i could see the drama and the mystery rising.
it was a unputdownable book for me. I was shook to the core with the twists and turns. i found the book superb and interesting.
Also, I really love the female empowerment aspect shown as a sub plot. like I have read few reviews about this book and none have spoken about this underlying sub-pot which is female empowerment.
Our protagonist, Alix Philips, had to face many social rejections and her husband had died when she was young and was left with a daughter. The struggles in her life and the risky job she does make her equal to what many men can do.
So, she was an unusual protagonist and I really loved that aspect.
the plot was quite interesting and the story took a turn after sometime and I was hooked on to this book.
the characterisation in this book was quite clear and proper. the character ‘s background was shown which made it easier to understand their situation and to know them better. also, as the story progressed the character developed beautifully and that was so satisfying since I have read many books which i didn’t due to poor character development.
\\my final rating//

Olympia Foster is the fragile, reclusive widow of America's most admired senator, who had been destined for the presidency before an assassin's bullet felled him.

When Alix begins to dig deeper, federal agents pick up the trail. Then the threats begin.
As the stakes rise in this dangerous game, Alix needs Ben's help as never before. Soon they realize they are grappling with an adversary far more sinister than they had imagined.

Gradually they stumble upon Clark's connections with the Afghan lobbyists and other notorious men funding the campaigns that lead them on the undiscovered track behind the assassination of the former senator of USA. Little did, Alix or Ben knew that this investigation of theirs would lead them on a groundbreaking discovery about the death of the former US senator and that it would throw them on a dangerous track where the lives of their loves ones would come under stake.
Danielle Steel, the household name in the world of crime drama and suspense, spins a gripping political thriller that will blow off the minds of its readers. This novel has got enough drama, juicy scandal and actions with random twists that make the whole reading experience as of one riding a fast roller-coaster with unpredictable tracks. Steel knows how to grasp the minds of her readers right into the heart of her very story and also how to keep them engaged all through out the story line. Even though Steel's books are an instant best seller, yet this is the first time that I managed to get my hands around a Steel novel.
The author's writing style is coherent and powerful enough to hook the readers easily into the story. Although there are not many layers to this story, yet the edgy suspense keeps the heat in check thereby making it an intriguing and exciting read for the crime fiction readers. The narrative is arresting and free flowing and which is something easy to comprehend with. The pacing is really fast as Alix and Ben journeys from one part of the world to another while on their quest.
The author has well concocted the mystery that flows deep into the depths of this story and the unraveling of that riddle is done equally tastefully and thoughtfully. The twists and turns, not many, yet they come at an unusual pace that will tense up the already anticipating mood of the story. The adrenaline rushing action scenes are excellently portrayed through this story that intensify the story line.
The characters from this story are well developed with a slightly realistic side to their authentic demeanor. The portrayal of the main character, no matter how much fictional she sounds, Alix depicts the strength of the modern day career minded and dedicated woman, whose prioritizes her profession over her personal life. her determination to get to the bottom of every story is something really enlightening to read about her. the rest of the supporting characters are kept interesting to a level and never once make the story feel dull or boring.
In a nutshell, this is an electrifying novel filled with action, mystery, murder and mayhem with a twist and lots of drama, perfect for both serious and occasional crime fiction readers.
The story is about Alix Philips, who is a top class reporter and my boy! What a fearless character Alix is. She’s a women of steel, always ready to take challenges and fight for what’s right, even when it means that she can lose her life in the process. Alix is a single mother to a 19 year old daughter Faye, who is studying in Duke University. The main plot is about exposing the Vice President of USA, Tony Clark for his deeds and risking the nation for his own good. In the course of doing so Alix forms a close bond with Olympia Foster, who is the widow of one of USA’s senator Bill Foster, who also happens to be Tony Clark’s best friend. Olympia and Alix are poles apart from each other, but still strike a bond and there kick starts a mission to save the nation and every discovery of the progress is shocking and a an eye-opening truth of how the world has certainly changed from the times when friendship and relationships were a truly important part of one’s life and now everybody wants their own good. Tony Clark’s character is a shade of smartness combined with wickedness, he believes that if you have to achieve something you don’t have to wait for it to happen but rather mend your ways with everything it takes to achieve that one thing.
Every Assignment of Alix is written with utmost perfection that one can actually be there walking with Alix covering the story. The incidents and hot news that she covers are so much similar to what’s happening in real world. The book actually doesn’t seem like a work of fiction but rather seems like a true story.
Except for a few pages at start and some incidents in between the book is absolutely fantastic read and a wonderful contemporary fiction.
Thanks a lot to the publisher for sending me this amazing book and the views expressed above are my own and may differ from others.
