Rolling Flipper
Phenomenal book. She's my favorite author. I've read all of hers except The Book of Spies, which I'm more than half-way through. And, it doesn't disappoint, either. It's been super good so far, as expected. The Coil was my least favorite of her books, but still, it was really good, too. I just mean relative to her others. The rest though, like this one, Masquerade, Mosaic, etc. All are awesome. Her books somehow manage to be super fast-paced without seeming rushed or overlooking detail. And, she wraps up all loose ends and doesn't leave any questions unanswered, which I love. Ludlum, by comparison, gets a little bogged down in detail or obscure references at times. That said, I LOVE Ludlum, so take that last statement with a grain of salt.

The plot of this novel deals with cellular memory, political intrigue, intelligence agents, assassins, fanatics, etc. It is a complex plot. The first part covers about a year's time to establish the situation. Then the main part of the novel spans about a one week time period as events unfold. The Epilogue covers about a one year period as follow on to the main plot and wraps up some loose ends.
After the collapse of the communist government, a new elite seized power of the country's resources. People are ruthless, willing to kill opponents, and unemployed assassins from the old KGB are available. A group is maneuvering to take control of the Russian government, and it includes Russians within the United States. There is a mole somewhere within the FBI providing information known only to top level officials.
Beth Convey has received a heart transplant, and finds herself with strange compulsions that seem to be related to the donor.
She finds herself drawn into intrigue surrounding Russian businessmen located in the Washington, DC, metro area. There are more players in the game than people realize, and some of them are deadly. It reminds me of the lines from an old nursery rhyme, "Who is watching the watchbird, while the watchbird is watching you."
You can guess about the identity of the mole, but my guess was wrong. As I noted in a previous review, in the intelligence business you can't trust anyone. People have different motives, but most often it is money, i.e., personal greed.
As the story winds towards a conclusion, help comes from some unexpected sources. There is collateral damage, and one can wonder about some of the minor players who undoubtedly had their lives changed forever.

Here is an author who puts the controversy of cellular memory on center stage while peeling away layers and layers of comspiracy. Yes, she suspends the reader's belief, but in doing so she raises another question: what part does attitude play in physical activity? Bev Convey has a transplanted heart, from a Russian agent killed in a car accident. She craves new tastes and new interests, but before a heart attack disabled her, she was physically fit. If the cellular memory contained in a new heart brings a new way of looking at life, then why can't Bev prefer Karate to some other sport? She has a fit body and a change of desire could very well provide her with new competencies. Gayle Lynd's exploration of this interesting medical phenomen while developing characters and a plot that rivets you to each page shows why Robert Ludlum collaborated with her to produce his last books. Already, in this story, she out-Ludlums Ludlum.

The novel is well written and has an excellent plot with realistic characters.
Readers of suspense/mystery books will certainly enjoy this one.

I enjoyed the book, although here and there i could have wished for a few fewer cliches; I think it is a little too much a book in which everyone who finds out anything is killed until near the end; the subject of the conspiracy itself is not novel; but the writing is fast-paced, and through the device of cellular memory the heroine is less of a wimpy damsel in distress than is usual in thrillers. On the whole, an enjoyable read. Oh, and I loved the scene in which Beth tells off her boss.

Gayle Lynds' Mesmerized has it all: an exciting, believeable story with likeable protagonists and antagonists you dislike and fear, a plot that evolves naturally, and a satisfying conclusion. She is, in my humble opinion, even better than her late mentor, Robert Ludlum, because her plots are not as involved and convoluted, and she adds a human element that Ludlum never offered.

Ms Lynds writes a good thriller. In quality she can compete with the big boys. But she does have a tendency to have her characters radiate intense emotion constantly when there is no need for it.
I like her as an author.
