Mindless airy entertainment.
Reviewed in the United States on December 4, 2018
This novel is like book cotton candy. It’s light, breezy, and doesn’t involve a lot of brain cells — a pick-me-up for casual, quick entertainment (think poolside with a drink that has an umbrella in it). It’s the second entry to Stuart Woods’ Rick Barron series. The first book in the series was a little disconnected in its mindlessness. This entry is also light on substance. It does try to take on the subject of blacklisting, but the writing is surface-level, so the effort is merely a plot point. The book has a super easy flow to it, with a decent storyline and interesting characters.
