Die For You

Book flaps lie. While I am not quite sure who decides what will be revealed on the flap of a book, I would imagine that it’s someone in marketing whose missive is to sell, sell, sell!
So, Lisa Unger’s Die For You is described as:

When successful novelist Isabel Raines learns that everyone that her husband
worked with is dead–and that her missing husband has been legally dead for some time–she will not rest until she finds the truth about him. Who he was, where
he’s gone, and how he was able to deceive her so completely.

After reading lots of YA, picture books and Alexander Mccall Smith’s No 1 Ladies Detective series I was ready for something a bit meatier. I was suckered into Unger’s Die For You. Unger’s main character, Isabel Connolly Raines is a writer, NOT a cop, detective or any of the like. Yet she treks all over the world to discover the truth about her husband. Ignores the authorities, puts her family in danger and goes up against a bunch of thugs.
I should (or could) do a better review but this book was so unbelievable that I won’t even bother.
What a stinker!

    I too hate when characters turn into Green Freaking Berets.
