Book Review- Iris Johansen- No One To Trust

Iris Johansen- No One To Trust (Bantam Books 2002) 3.5 Stars

Elena Kyler wishes only to protect her son and Sean Galen has been hired to assist her. Rico Chavez wants his son, the son that he never knew existed, but more than that he wants Elena Kyler. She had escaped his grasp once. Can she escape his grasp forever?
Iris Johansen is a talented female author with a knack for writing thrillers. She created believable characters that you couldn’t help but like, although I would have liked to see a little bit more depth to them. The plot was put together well, although it could have been done a little bit better. I was sorely disappointed in the ending though, they spent the whole book building up to the dramatic fight at the end, only to have a short one page fight with very little action involved. It was like blowing up a balloon in the hopes of having a huge ball to play with, only to have it blow up in your face, leaving you empty and sad.
Overall No One To Trust is a pretty good thriller novel. I would recommend this novel to those who like thrillers with a little bit of romance, though the romance isn’t the overall theme.
