This is a fast read with a plot that is a race against time. The two main characters, Emma and Mac must prevent global enemies from blowing up a major US city using a yacht filled with deadly explosives. Time is not on their side and the book keeps you guessing from beginning to end.

Death Echo by Elizabeth Lowell is an outstanding thriller. Emma Cross is an ex-CIA agent now working for a "consulting" firm. Thanks to some strong-arm maneuvers by a government agency, she starts out tracking a lavish yacht and ends up in the middle of an international terrorism threat.
This book is a wonderful, quick read with enough sex, violence, and mystery to keep it continually interesting. The action never stops or slows down once Emma is on the case, and cascades to an exciting ending.
Thanks to William Morrow and BookBrowse for a chance to read and review this book.

Good summer read
I enjoyed Death Echo. It was exactly what I thought it would be - a fast paced, interesting read, meant to entertain, which it did.
I liked the interaction between Emma and Mac and wished the action had taken place over a longer period so their relationship could develop farther.
It was a little formulaic but the fact that most of the action took place on boats, with lots of info about boats and yachts which I didn't know, helped make it interesting.

Quick Mystery Read
Smart, sexy and fun. This new novel by Elizabeth Lowell will satisfy readers who enjoy a fast paced mystery. The two main characters, Mac and Emma are witty and make a great investigative pair. Enjoyed the setting of the Pacific Northwest ocean where the two had to solve the mystery of deadly twin yachts.
