The Counterfeit by Robison Wells

The Counterfeit by Robison Wells (formerly known as Robison E. Wells) is the sequel to Wake Me When It's Over.

We pick up where the last book left off:

Conspiracy rumor holds that the world economy is tightly controlled by a group of economic terrorists. Eric Hopkins is about to find out just how true that myth is--and how close it stands to him.

Eric and his girlfriend Rebekah believe they are safely hiding under the witness protection program. But when a bomb explodes, nearly killing them, they must rely on themselves to find out who has infiltrated the FBI. Their shocking conclusion leads them on a dangerous chase. Eric and Rebekah are battling the powers behind a financial conspiracy that has lasted hundreds of years--and may only end with the destruction of mankind. Nearly out of time, their pursuit of the truth sweeps them to a centuries-old English estate, and then plummets them into the dark catacombs of Paris. It's now up to the unprepared duo to unravel the clues that could save the world from a catastrophic war. However, as they take action, they must ask themselves if the end can ever justify the devastating means they are considering.

I enjoyed the first book. I liked this one better. Although this book still has more technical errors than I like to see, Wells' writing is getting better and the story is more solid. Still hilariously funny and clueless, Eric's thoughts and behaviors had me laughing in many places.

I recommend both these books as light suspense (although there is some guts and blood and an "on-screen" death in this one) with some romance thrown in just for fun.

Rating: 3.5.....................BUY NOW
