Review: Street Game by Christine Feehan

Title: Street Game (Ghostwalkers Series, #8)
Published: December 2009
Publisher: Penguin Group
Format: Audio Book
Source: Public Library
Characters: Jamie Fielding, Mack McKinley
My Rating:

For Mack McKinley and his team of GhostWalker killing machines, urban warfare is an art. But despite a hard-won knowledge of the San Francisco streets, Mack knows from experience that too many things can still go wrong. Danger was just another part of the game—and now he’s come face-to-face with a woman who can play just as tough.

She’s Jaimie, a woman with a sapphire stare so potent it can destroy a man. Years ago she and Mack had a history—volatile, erotic, and electric. Then she vanished. Now she’s walked back into Mack’s life, as a spy with more secrets than are good for her. Against all odds, she’s hooking up with Mack one more time to take on an enemy that could destroy them both, or bring them back together in one hot, no-holds-barred adrenaline rush.
If you follow my blog you will notice that this book stayed on my 'currently reading' list for quite a while because I would find myself constantly setting it aside. The only reason I did complete it was because it's Christine Feehan.

My major problem with this book was that I didn't know any of these people. They weren't introduced in earlier books and finally got their own story. They were complete unknowns to me. I didn't seem to form any kind of attachment to any of the characters, primary or secondary. I didn't car one way or the other about Jamie or Mack. He seemed rather cold, like there wasn't any depth to his character.

The action in this book also fell flat for me as well. It seems as if it's getting a little redundant. I hope this isn't a glimpse of what's to come for the Ghostwalker Series, because if so, it's very disappointing.
