Book Review – Fatal Code

Fatal Code

by Natalie Walters

About the book

In 1964, a group of scientists called the Los Alamos Five came close to finishing a nuclear energy project for the United States government when they were abruptly disbanded. Now the granddaughter of one of those five scientists, aerospace engineer Elinor Mitchell, discovers that she has highly sensitive information on the project in her possession–and a target on her back.

SNAP agent and former Navy cryptologist Kekoa Young is tasked with monitoring Elinor. This is both convenient since she’s his neighbor in Washington, DC, and decidedly inconvenient because . . . well, he kind of likes her.

As Elinor follows the clues her grandfather left behind to a top-secret nuclear project, Kekoa has no choice but to step in. When Elinor learns he has been spying on her, she’s crushed. But with danger closing in on all sides, she’ll have to trust him to ensure her discoveries stay out of enemy hands.

My thoughts

This is the second book in Ms. Walters’ “The Snap Agency” series, and it is just as exciting and intense as the first.

This is Kekoa’s story, and I really enjoyed reading and understanding him a bit more.

Watching him get to know Elinor (the heroine) was fun, and funny at times. They aren’t necessarily your typical heroes, but were a joy to read about.

Elinor is a nerdy scientist, and is trying to follow clues left behind for her by her beloved grandfather. Kekoa’s trying to figure out what Elinor is up to, and monitoring her movements, in case she is the spy that all the evidence is pointing towards.

Intense, lots of action, suspense, and of course romance, this novel is a perfect read for anyone who enjoys a good mystery
