A Thin Disguise (Richter, 2)

We rated this book:


A Thin Disguise is the second book in the Richter series by Catherine Bybee. Olivia is an assassin who is ruthless at what she does. However, while she is guarding a young woman in Las Vegas, things go sideways and Olivia is shot in the chest. She finds herself in hospital with amnesia. A group of people who seem to know her come and take her to a secluded cabin in the woods so that she can recover. When she does, whoever shot her will certainly pay for what they did.

I found A Thin Disguise to be very entertaining, although the true plot of the story doesn’t really open up until the last third of the book. A lot of the book is wasted on very detailed sex scenes involving Olivia and an FBI agent named Leo. I found the author put a lot of work into the descriptions of those scenes and it was distracting when trying to get into the main storyline. Overall, the plot was a bit weak and I feel the description of the Richter school, which Olivia attended, should have been outlined from the start. It was an okay read minus all the Fifty Shades-style sex scenes.
