Natalie Flynn could persuade Representative Reuben King to support a controversial bill that would have saved her from an evil man a year ago. She is soon drawn into a conspiracy that reaches far deeper than she could have imagined.
It is nice to see a minor chararcter in a previous book getting a story of their own because one who has read the previous book (in this case, One Step Away, has some idea of who the character is. This is what happens in this book. Natalie’s kidnapping from One Step Away plays an important part in the story.
One of the cool things about this book was that the events connected to some of those in its predecessor. There are characters linked to those in One Step Away, and it is shown that they had something to do with certain events.
Serpinov– one of the books main antagonists– is creepy, but definitely not as creepy as Magnus Maggart, the villian in the previous book. However, that is because Eric gives us a little to sympathize with Serpinov– unlike Magnus who you hate with your guts.
There is one thing that I want to point out that was a weak point in the book: Natalie’s sparse use of the Spanish language. I don’t have a problem with it as a whole, but there were some serious parts in the story where she speaks Spanish. It seemed out of place, and it would have been much better if she just spoke English in those parts. Other than this, Two Seconds Late is another great read from Eric, and I will be looking forward to reading the next installment in the series, Three Fatal Blows, when it releases this fall.
