This story had an interesting premise and I enjoyed seeing how the investigation was run, watching as the RED team members used their individual skills to bring in a very dangerous hacker.
However, I struggled with a few things in this book. I don’t know exactly why, but I just didn’t emotionally connect with either of the main characters. I felt as if I was on the outside looking in, hearing from both of them about the many reasons why they could never work as a couple.
Seconds to Live was a slow read for me. I had trouble staying invested in the story until I was about three-fourths of the way through the book. I think that the author has created a good team of people for future stories, though, and I may read another book in the series to see if I connect better with those characters.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
