OK, I am calmer and can go on with my review rewrite. Reading "Past Perfect" by Susan Isaacs, reminded me of the first book of hers I ever read, "Compromising Positions". One phrase always stuck with me...MYOB. This was one of those stories where the heroine, Katie Schottland, would have been better off heeding that warning. Katie, smart and funny, is a successful author, whose book has been turned into a successful TV show called "Spy Guys".Katie, of course, knows about spies, since she used to work in the CIA. She was unceremoniously fired but went on with her life, until a call from a woman she used to work with, but did not trust, sent her on a quest to learn the truth about her firing. As she searches for clues and for the missing caller, she lands in the middle of murder, mayhem, and suspense. No one can write both serious and funny in the same story, like Isaacs. This was a definite fun ride!
Next up is "Underworld" by Don DeLillo, if I can lift it.
