Review ~ Walk of Infamy by Sheralyn Pratt
Rhea always knew she worked for a powerful men, but she didn’t understand the full scope of their influence until she quit her job—or tried to.
The clandestine group that calls themselves The Fours doesn’t accept two-week’s notice from employees. Instead, they’re demanding Rhea perform a final task of their choosing to earn a life free from their demands.
Rhea knows whatever The Fours ask of her will be unlike any challenge she’s ever faced. She’s prepared for the worst, but what she’s about to learn is that groups like The Fours are a secret for a reason.
Because no one gets to walk away from them. Not even Rhea.
I will admit that I haven't read the previous books in the Rhea Jensen series, so I don't have all that background coming into this final book. That said, I was able to thoroughly enjoy Walk of Infamy as a stand alone. Enough background information is provided that I didn't feel completely lost.
This is it - the day that determines Rhea Jensen's future, or lack thereof. She knows that she probably won't live through the day and she's taken every precaution to ensure that her family and loved ones are protected. However, nothing has truly prepared her for what happens.
She had been "drugged twice, had objects implanted and removed from [her] body, undergone a blood purge, had a bout with hypothermia, done a triathlon, been in several fights,[and] taken a bullet to the leg…" in a matter of about fourteen hours. But she was still alive - for the moment. Can she trust Anton, Jack, and "Eyes" to help her survive? And if she does live, what then? She'll be a walking target with a million-dollar bounty on her head. She can't ever return to the life she once knew - or to her family… her husband.
Walk of Infamy is a high-paced, action-packed adventure that tears at your heart strings, gets your heart racing, and all the while you hold out the unrealistic hope that it's going to be ok - that Rhea and Ty will somehow be able to be together again.
I absolutely loved this book. I had already read Pimpernel and had to go back and skim it to put all the pieces together that tie in. I'm now going to get the previous Rhea Jensen books to fill in the complete backstory and look forward eagerly for the continuation of the Pimpernel series.
FYI~ mild language, violence, some mature topics/themes but handled tactfully
honest disclosure~ I received a review copy
