Review | Dangerous Minds
The irrepressibly charming duo of Emerson Knight and Riley Moon returns in another gripping mystery by #1 New York Times bestselling author Janet Evanovich.
Buddhist monk Wayan Bagus lost his island of solitude and wants to get it back. The island was about two hundred miles northeast of Samoa. It had a mountain, beaches, a rain forest, and a volcano. And now it’s gone. Poof! Vanished without a trace.
Brilliant and boyishly charming Emerson Knight likes nothing better than solving an unsolvable, improbable mystery. And finding a missing island is better than Christmas morning in the Knight household. When clues lead to a dark and sinister secret that is being guarded by the National Park Service, Emerson will need to assemble a crack team for help. Since a crack team isn’t available, he enlists Riley Moon and his cousin Vernon. Riley Moon has a Harvard business degree and can shoot the eyes out of a grasshopper at fifty feet, but she can’t figure out how to escape the vortex of Emerson Knight’s odd life. Vernon has been Emerson’s loyal and enthusiastic partner in crime since childhood. He now lives in an RV behind Emerson’s house.
Together, this ragtag, mismatched trio will embark on a worldwide investigation that will expose a conspiracy one hundred years in the making.
I love Janet Evanovich
. I read a lot of her books. This series is no surprise with its quirkiness. She has a great thing going with these books. I am enjoying them immensely.
Ok So a lost island How do you lose an island? Well you will be surprised in this book. It can happen…….
So Riley and Emmerson are off on another of his wild adventures. I must say that I am really digging the quirky eccentric man. Some of the things he does, your like wow! No he didn’t.
In this book the chemistry between Emerson and Riley starts to simmer. Not really heat up per say, since they are really slow at the whole idea of a relationship thing. Maybe it is because Emmerson is well…how should I put this….He’s…well He’s Emmerson. What can I say? I mean he is an extremely eccentric billionaire. His mind is moving a mile a minute. Not to mention that Riley sees Vernon naked more than any one. Awkward!!!
In this book his monk friend Wayan was drugged while meditating on a desert isle. Then he wakes up on another island. Having been evicted from his meditation home by park rangers, he tries to return to his island only to find it completely gone. So he seeks out Emmerson to help him find it.
Not only is an island gone, but people are dyeing or going missing from national parks at an alarming rate. The government is hiding something. I mean islands don’t just disappear and people don’t just have a ton deadly accidents while visiting national parks, right?
This book was a wonderful adventure. I really am enjoying this series. The banter between Riley and Emerson is cute and funny. The things Vernon says cracks me up. He is a nut job. Emmerson may be an eccentric billionaire with a big brain, but he is Riley’s hero and I feel that these two will develop stronger feelings as the stories go on. I don’t exactly think that Emmerson knows what to do with the feelings or how to express them, but it is funny watching him try.
If you are looking for a little danger mixed with comedy, then this is the book for you. So pick it up today.
