    Smoke and Mirrors is not my normal read and I enjoyed being taken out of my comfort zone. This is one of the reasons I joined Goodreads and entering the giveaways!

The book jumped between the two stories getting more and more frantic as time went on, raising the tension as Chloe raced to get to the truth. It took me some time to get in to the story but once I did, I really enjoyed it. All the little questions that it raised, why would a strong independent woman not remember her wedding day, were answered later in the book. I would recommend this to other people and hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    Chloe is a French journalist who has remarried an Algerian, Walid. He is often missing but she figures it is because he will travel to appraise art and determine if his client would want it. Now it seems there are government agents after her and not just French ones. She has been given a story from a friend in America about the deaths of bioscientists who have been studying DNA and biological weapons. What is scaring the governments about her research of her story? This is a fascinating book. She Chloe is a French journalist who has remarried an Algerian, Walid. He is often missing but she figures it is because he will travel to appraise art and determine if his client would want it. Now it seems there are government agents after her and not just French ones. She has been given a story from a friend in America about the deaths of bioscientists who have been studying DNA and biological weapons. What is scaring the governments about her research of her story? This is a fascinating book. She has used documents about this as the basis of her story. It is truly chilling that this research is going on. It is also chilling that the spies work together when it is in their best interests and turn a blind eye if what is occurring does not affect their work and goals. I liked Claire. She is a pawn but she works the different angles of the story as the spies and she work each other. I never could tell what angle her husband, Walid, was working. Was he innocent as he claimed? Was he also a pawn? Was he more involved than anyone knew? I liked how the story switched between the characters and the places of the novel. The story is Chloe's but there is much going on behind the scene that we readers know about but Chloe does not. The proofreading and editing hurt the story. There were times when I had to re-read sections because the scene changed between sentences in the middle of a paragraph. Some parts could have used more fleshing out to clarify what was happening and who was involved in the story. This is a story that should be read. I fell into the story and wanted to know what was happening and why. It is very timely.

    You cant go wrong with this one: An complicared web of intrigue and cover-ups researched by a prize winning author quickly turns personal on more than one level. This story is woven together with amazing attention to detail and the pace was precisely right for an interesting and exciting read. I loved EVERY WORD right until the end, where another sentence or two would have tied up the only loose end... I believe while the title is accurate (and interesting) perhaps it is a bit too wordy to catch You cant go wrong with this one: An complicared web of intrigue and cover-ups researched by a prize winning author quickly turns personal on more than one level.

    My husband recommended the book to me. It's not my usual genre, but I really enjoyed it. The first chapter is really gripping and increased my heartrate. There is a slow bit where all the strands of the story are being individually developed before they begin to come together. I often struggle through this stage with many books. It wasn't helped by my taking a long hiatus from reading the book while studying and taking exams. Once I got back into it, though, I devoured the book in two days.

It wasn't helped by my taking a long hiatus from reading the book while studying and taking exams. Once I got back into it, though, I devoured the book in two days. The book spans a number of geographical settings, and in each Harris has painted a sense of place. I disagree with my husband over the pace. Yes, it goes very quickly towards the end, but I was quite happy to go along for the ride. I wanted to know what happens and the pace seemed realistic. I never got left behind. I've bought a copy to give to my mother-in-law. [Update] I received a revised and improved copy, and have already leant it to a friend at church. Once it is returned to me, I intend to send it to a journalist living in Zimbabwe who collects books for the people of Zimbabwe - giving them to schools, libraries, etc. I thought this book would be well received by them given its geographical spread and topical nature.

    ****goodreads giveaway I tried to read this book a few times. I don't know if it was the pace, or if this book just isn't my thing, but I could not get through it. I found there to be some editing issues, as at time, I had to go and reread the same part. Time elapsed, but there was no break in the paragraphs. I'm not a fan of run-on chapters, gets confusing when shifts in characters happen and you're not sure if you missed something. ****goodreads giveaway I tried to read this book a few times.

    I received this book as a Goodreads winner. Although not my first pick of genres this suspense novel kept me interested with its fast paced story and different perspectives with the changing of narrators. Great for anyone who already loves suspense or anyone wanting to give it a go.

    I enjoyed the book but I thought it was a bit slow at times. My rating is 3.5 stars but could have been four stars if the pace had been faster.
