Kate Chandler has accepted a commission that will solidify her reputation as a world-class gem cutter. But during what should have been a simple transfer, seven rare, priceless sapphires vanish without a trace, along with their courier, her brother Lee, who now, quite possibly, is dead. And suddenly Kate is on the run, pursued by federal agents who believe she's the criminal mastermind of a cunning bait-and-switch.

Only Kate suspects the terrifying truth: that she's stumbled into a conspiracy of deceit, betrayal, and cold-blooded murder that goes far beyond a simple jewel heist. Getting Sam Groves, the FBI special agent who's her constant shadow, to trust her is a step in the right direction -- but it may be too little and too late in a bloody game where terror dictates her every move. Because a ruthless assassin has already received the order that Kate Chandler must die ...

I wanted to like this book mostly because it is by a Seattle woman. I did not like it. On page 20, I promised myself that if I read the word tits one my time I could give up. From there until page 190-something, there was a lot of heavy breathing, a bunch of being so in lust the characters brains hardly functioned and way too much "insider information" on cutting jewels. (If I were interested, I'd read about jewels not try to read something entertaining.) I skipped the long chapter of them having sweaty teenage-hormone driven sex (they are both over 30). Then about page 300 the word tits popped back into the book, and I didn't have to read the last 98 pages.
Lowell writes like an older woman trying to be crude when she really isn't. She clearly hates the FBI and is pretty disgusted with men in general since all the men are vain, pompous, and power hungry--except gay men who weep a lot.
If you are looking for older books to read, go to J. A. Jance, Nevada Barr, or Tony Hillerman. If you want something unusual, see my lists of good books to give a chance.
