Nothing wrong with that except there was way too much description on the proper way to board a yacht, to keep it going down below mechanical systems and above steering, ropes, etc.
Further, the sticky passion that the two main characters will not admit to it is just too sticky and never-ending. I always try to finish a book even if I do not particularly like the novel but I had to quit reading a little over halfway through the book. I wasn't even interested in the ending! I had just had enough. Sorry Elizabeth! Feb 27, Elena rated it did not like it Shelves: book-challenge How this novel got a close to a 4 star review is beyond me.
The plot had great potential, but the book ended up being just plain boring. If I wanted to read up on navigating yachts properly I would have gotten a "do it yourself" book, not a romance thriller!!! As for the romance - no chemistry can be felt , despite a lot of talk about it Maybe Turkish, Afgan, Albanian, Arabic May 16, Becky rated it did not like it.
This was a phenomenally bad book made even more notable by the fact that Elizabeth Lowell is usually quite competent and often fantastic. I continued reading mostly out of the belief that at some point the writing would turn and things would magically resolve. The romantic element of the plot was phoned in with a few flirty lines that somehow became intense passion and a soul connection. The suspense plot was overly complex and the resolution was somehow both too pat and murky.
Interspersed with This was a phenomenally bad book made even more notable by the fact that Elizabeth Lowell is usually quite competent and often fantastic. Interspersed with all this were insanely long and detailed accounts of all things motor boating as well as one brief but painful foray into how to make your own radiation detector using household items; that was just odd. I came away from the book with the distinct impression that it had been written as a group project with a distinct lack of editing. If you want to read a much better novel by Elizabeth Lowell that also features a motor boat well done and a reasonable suspense and romantic element, I would suggest Jade Island Jun 29, Kim rated it it was ok Shelves: romantic-suspense.
Let me say first that I fell in love with E. Since then I've read all of the Rarities Unlimited, St. Kilda, Donovans, plus a few more. Her characters are well drawn, the plots are solid, though admittredly formulaic, and the dialog is superb. In this book the characters are somehow, not quite finished.
The romance portion of the story is, unfortunately, thrown in as if an afterthought. I liked the plot, not being a "bad guys chasing good Let me say first that I fell in love with E.

I liked the plot, not being a "bad guys chasing good guys", but the good guys putting the bad guys on the run. From the middle of the book on, it was compelling. Her denouements are typically riveting, but perhaps I'm getting a bit jaded, because there was no suspension of disbelief at all. If you are a fan, you'll still enjoy this book, although it isn't her best work.
And, btw, if you are a Joe Faroe fan, you will be happy. The dialog in this book does NOT disappoint. I was laughing out LOUD. If you are just discovering this author, start with another book by her. She's great. Jun 24, Lizzie rated it liked it. Elizabeth Lowell's newest novel "Death Echo" has the detail, characters, and intrigue that fans of her work will enjoy. However, the plot drags along under the weight of just too much detail.
Did I really need pages of boating background, or info about how to tie a knot? Not really. This time Lowell's complex background and details get her in trouble. Instead of playing up the romance between her two characters or the threat of danger, she dives into the world of yachting, political agencies, an Elizabeth Lowell's newest novel "Death Echo" has the detail, characters, and intrigue that fans of her work will enjoy.
Instead of playing up the romance between her two characters or the threat of danger, she dives into the world of yachting, political agencies, and smuggling rings, which confuse and weigh down the reader and the plot. While this is definitely not one of Lowell's best books, the sharply drawn characters and fast dialogue will keep you reading despite the slow parts.
Mar 28, Robin rated it it was ok Shelves: , audiobook , library. I enjoyed book four in this series, and this one was available from the library-- so I went for it. But it didn't grab me like the previous one did. Mostly, there was a lot about boats. I found myself only half-listening a lot of the time, which was not a good approach with the level of detail involved in this story much of it concerning boats.
This one was just not my cup of tea. Oct 16, Sheri rated it really liked it Shelves: listened. I had a bit of trouble keeping the bad guys straight, but the Hero and Heroine's stories and characters were great. I especially liked the hero, who drives a yacht.
Dissatisfied with the work she was doing with the CIA, Emma Cross gets a job with a private security consultant firm looking for stolen yachts. MacKenzie Duran, special ops agent turned boat salesman, are forced to work as a team to find the ship used by terrorists who are planning a lethal attack. I enjoyed the cloak and dagger. Beth Mcdonald was not the voice of the characters. Apr 01, Chetna Nayyar rated it really liked it.
I really liked this book. I'm usually a person who watches tv shows about these murder mysteries or crime investigation. She is set out to investigate other crimes with her partner Mackenzie Durand. The story talks about there day to day experience to catch the criminals. If you are interested in these types of books, then I recommend this to you.

Every so often I pick up a book with no supernatural elements. Really, I do! Death Echo is a straight thriller and a pretty darn good one, with a dash of romance and lots of action.

When she finds out the intended cargo is going to be used to destroy an American city within the next seven days, she needs help. She finds it in the form of MacKenzie Durand, a transit captain who is taking the Blackbird to the commissioning yard for final electronic installations. He also happens to be a former special ops soldier who is a dangerous, trained killer. Emma enlists Mac to help her find out what the deadly cargo is biological, chemical or nuclear?
Along the way, Russian spies, Slavic smugglers and other bad people try to keep Emma and Mac from solving the mystery. The finale is a stormy high-seas chase that made me sea sick just reading it!

Lowell writes expertly about living onboard a yacht and the challenges of learning to pilot, anchor, navigate, read charts, etc. As Emma learns to be first mate, so do we. Descriptions of the Pacific Northwest make you feel like you are sightseeing on the river yourself, except without the danger of hitting a submerged log.

Actual rating: 3. It was so slow to get going and way too overly detailed on yacht piloting and such. Once the action picked up a bit, it got a lot better.

She's on the trail of a ship named Blackbird, and Mac former special ops is a transit captain hired to take the yacht to get it's final bits and bobs installed. The two team up when it's discovered that others want the boat for nefarious reasons. I enjoyed the developing relationship between the two main characters, Emma and Mac.
But as the book takes place over the course of nine days--with the bulk of the book taking place over six days, and the final chapter set three days later--I had a tiny bit of a hard time believing in their HEA.
HFN, for sure, though. No "I love yous" were exchanged, but the two deep form a connection based on more than just physical attraction, and I can see things working out for them in the long run.

I like that there was zero angst between the two of them. They were attracted to each other, they acted on it, they worked together to defeat the bad guys. Jun 14, Ian rated it liked it. They are entertaining, action-packed and well written. They just aren't all that unique. James Bates was charged with first-degree murder in the death of Victor Collins after a night of drinking and watching football. Collins was found floating face-down in Bates' hot tub, police said. County Prosecuting Attorney Nathan Smith filed a motion on Tuesday to dismiss the case against Bates, saying the current evidence supports more than one "reasonable explanation" for Collin's death, according to court documents obtained by CNN.
For that reason, the motion states, prosecutor was obligated to request the dismissal of Bates' case at this time. I'm going to stay right here.

Alexa, can you help with this murder case? The state has one year to refile charges against Bates but his attorney, Kathleen Zellner, said it's unlikely because prosecutors would need "new evidence. This is not a day of rubbing it on anyone's face," she added.
