Reeling from the destruction of her team at the hands of her deputy, FBI agent Evelyn Morgan vows revenge against her nemesis, the assassin that planned the operation, Omar Ben Iblis. The trail leads to an old friend, well-connected and well-placed in Washington's political establishment. When he refuses to help, Morgan must scramble to find the pieces to the puzzle. While investigating, she discovers a vicious new menace, more cunning and deadly than anyone she has ever faced. Trained and mentored by Ben Iblis, this new threat has already struck her family, and if Morgan doesn't act quickly, she'll be the talented protégé's next victim.
Muckross Folly starts right where Keyser Run ended. No time gap at all, which is what I wish some of my other reads would do. Neither book is a quick easy read. You have to be aware of what’s going on around all the characters. Sometimes it’s nice to be challenged when
you’re reading. That’s what will bring me back to this series.
Mr. Austgen reveals more and more about Evelyn, but I think he has more to reveal. There are too many open questions. Speaking of Eve(lyn), I like that she makes mistakes and even though she is pretty kick-ass, she’s not infallible. I like her do or die attitude. When she’s all in, she’s ALL IN. Mr. Austgen does leave me wanting to know why, about a lot of things.
The immediate world building is on-gong. The author’s descriptions of some of the locations seems spot on. The character frame work is also a work in progress.
The story line isn’t as fascinating as the “whys”. The characters, especially Eve, keep pulling me in. I never know what she’s going to do next.
I am sincerely enjoying this author’s stories and am looking forward to more and soon, I hope!
