Your Next Breath from New York Times best selling author Iris Johansen

Catherine Ling is one of the CIA's most prized operatives. Raised on the streets of Hong Kong, she was pulled into the agency at the age of fourteen. If life has taught her anything, it is not to get attached, but there are two exceptions to that rule: her son Luke and her mentor Hu Chang. Luke was kidnapped at age two, and now, nine years later, he has astonishingly been returned to her. Catherine vows never to fail him again. Now, just as she is building a relationship with Luke, it seemsthat someone from Catherine's past is playing a deadly game with her, and using those she cares about as pawns. Three are dead already: the former prostitute who helped Catherine when she was out on the street, a CIA agent with whom she worked closely, and the informant who helped her free Luke. Someone is picking off the people Catherine cares about one by one, with the circle narrowing closer and closer to those she loves the most. Catherine has made many enemies throughout her life, and she has no choice but to weed through her past to find out who is targeting her now, and then go after the vicious killer herself.

While I like Johannsen's Eve Duncan & Catherine Ling series, this one felt like it was phoned in. By the end, it was overly obvious what was going to happen & it pretty much fizzled at that point. You no longer care how it ends, if you get that far. Johannsen has written far better than this.

I like the Catherine Ling series but this book was OK.

Have to admit, I found the book kind of funny but probably not in the way the author intended. I haven't read any by this author but she's listed as a New York Times bestselling author so this is not likely one of her best efforts.

This book would make a great graphic novel, but I didn't feel like it was a great read. The many paranormal elements at play overshadow (obliterate?) spycraft and suspense, and I felt the author relied too heavily on Ling and Cameron's memories of an intimate encounter from the previous book to justify the connection we're supposed to believe they have in the present one.
