Emily Hudson and her friend and partner, Joel Levy work for the United Nations as artifact experts. They and their team travel all over to different war torn countries to unearth and save artifacts from destruction. Emily and Joel are in Afghanistan when they are ambushed and held hostage. Their captor goes by the name of Borg. He believes that Emily has located Zelov’s hammer, a very priceless artifact. Borg is not a patient man. One way or another he will get what he wants.

You could call John Garrett a jack of all trades. He has worked for everyone from the CIA, MI6, and to just about anyone else who is willing to pay him. The CIA calls on John for a rescue mission to save Emily and Joel but it won’t be easy. Luckily for John he is up for the challenge.

Iris Johansen does it again with her latest Deadlock. From the first chapter you instantly get an adrenaline rush. The best part about reading an Iris Johansen story is that you can guarantee that the heroes and heroines won’t be any wilting flowers but strong survivors. I was really interested in Emily and John as they had depth to them. No matter how high the odds were stacked against them, they never gave up fighting. I read this book in one sitting. If you are looking for an action-packed, edge of your sit novel then you need to run out today and pick yourself up a copy of Deadlock.

Thanks for the review!! I've been wishing and waiting for this one, and I can take a breath now. It's not another in the Eve Duncan series. I can't wait to find out if they finally find Bonnie! I love Iris Johansen and consider her my favorite author. Though I've added to that list recently. Great review!

Another well-written review!
