Title: The Entity Game
Author: Lisa Shearin
Series: Aurora Donati #1
Release date: May 12, 2020
Description: A powerful United States senator and his aide die in their office of cardiac arrests. The next day, a second senator dies of an aneurysm. Officials declare their deaths natural causes, but the FBI fears there is something sinister happening on Capitol Hill and looks to psychometric detective Aurora Donati to investigate. Rory’s ability to get information from people or objects with a single touch uniquely qualifies her to explain the inexplicable. Only this time, she begins to wonder if she is up against forces that no one has ever encountered before.
The next attack strikes close to home and turns Rory’s world upside down. She finds herself entangled in a deadly mix of terrorists, corrupt politicians, and secretive intelligence agencies in a web of deception and conspiracy dating back to experiments performed in a Cold War-era Soviet laboratory and perfected by modern science.
Someone else is pursuing the truth: Gabriel Marshall, CIA operative, who has an agenda and abilities of his own. They find themselves locked in a deadly game, stalked by a seemingly supernatural assassin who puts Rory and Gabriel’s abilities to the ultimate test in a deadly duel. Time is running out and Rory must counter each move and play the game to its heart-stopping end in the halls of the US Capitol itself.
Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words …there could be SPOILERS. *BEWARE*
Nervous Nellie says…
This was an AWESOME first of the series story! New characters, new world, same strong and powerfully talented artist painting a movie for the mind through word!
This world is parallel of our world except for a female president, politicians that are actually acting for the greater good and, of course, supernatural talents that can only solve this mystery. There was no sex. No foul language. A strong set of main characters and a charming grandfather to boot. The story sets in Washington DC and surrounding area. Aurora Donati and her grandfather have special gifts that help the F.B.I. solve difficult cases. This time when they are called in, it is more than they bargained for as there is a sociopathic killer priming the world for his grand performance and a C.I.A. agent that writes his own rules.
I LOVED this book. These characters are as dimensional as all the other characters that Lisa Shearin writes, but with more of a real world kind of “it could maybe happen here” kind of twist. I cannot wait for the next in this series. The characters took me on an investigation that could only happen in the political world and only with the C.I.A. and secret forces at play.
There was a good ending which I am always thrilled to see and good triumphs evil…at least for now. This particular story could remain a player in an over arc of the whole series.
