Trouble follows me, Lexi Carmichael, like a little black cloud. At least according to my boyfriend, Slash: brilliant hacker, national treasure and vault of secrets. Even I have to admit he could be right.
After a series of high-profile cases at my cyberintelligence firm, I was looking forward to a simple job. All I had to do was personally deliver a revolutionary microchip to a manufacturing plant in Indonesia. Easy, right?
Someone else wants the design and is willing to kill to get it. A failed
hijacking attempt lands me, my best friend Basia and our boss, Finn, in the middle of the jungle. Our mission is clear: protect the microchip design from the hijackers on our tail...and survive. But how can a geek girl like me survive without access to my beloved technology? I'm about to find out. And this time, there's no room for error.
Lexi’s at it again. Hold me!
Thoughts on No Room For Error
OH MY GAWD, LEXI! Given the situations you stumble into with alarming regularity, someone (Slash) needs to lock you in a room no one knows about for your own protection. Oh, hey. Doesn’t he have one of those conveniently stashed away somewhere? Good times, man. Good times.
But seriously, Lexi is in the middle of another dangerous situation and this time she doesn’t have any of her high tech gadgets to help her out. Which means she and her friends are struggling to survive with only their wits and some well-times allies they meet on the way. Did I mention they have some pretty gnarly injuries while going head to head with the people hunting them down? Because they do. Really, no trek through the jungle is complete without a life-threatening injury or two.
Basically, I’m trying to say that everything Lexi learned from dealing with cyber terrorists and lending a helping hand during a SEAL mission comes in handy this time around. She not only has to save her own life, but those of her best friend and boss as well. And with nothing to rely on but their wits and good looks (questionable good looks, actually, given the extent of their injuries), things get mighty hairy.
I get a major kick out of Lexi and her lack of social skills. She’s smart and quick on her feet, but she’s not so great at reading people and she tends to stumble into awkward social situations about as often as she stumbles into danger. Which is awesome to read.
