    One thought on “The Gatekeeper”

    1. Book #3 in Kelly Jones series. Not my favorite book in the series. Mainly due to subject matter. 2.5 stars

    2. Have you ever read a book that you make yourself read again in hopes that the second time around is much better than the first?I enjoyed The Gatekeeper the first time I read it. I didn't like it and I didn't hate it. Just simply enjoyed it. The second time around, unfortunately, didn't change my opinion either way. It was a good read, with a pretty interesting turn of events and storyline. Just not anything exciting.To be honest, I found myself fascinated with the true facts that Gagnon added to [...]

    3. love Michelle gagnon and her series Kelly Jones there is a girl missing and this becomes Jake and syds first real business venture in there new company the longhorn group named cuz Jake and syd are Texas natives . the action of finding the girl gets intense the gun fire and the skin heads after them syds men are doing all they can to keep everyone safeanwhile Kelly is dealing with a murdered governor and starts checking out leads and discovering strange activity in warehouses come to find ou [...]

    4. Whoa.It's hard to say what the larger point of this book is. The two main plots aren't subtle. Kelly's involves a dismembered Arizona Senator and Jake's a kidnapped daughter of a physicist. It's sort of sad that because of the fact that they're on different cases (Kelly with the FBI and Jake's first case with his own new private security firm) they don't have many scenes together that don't take place over the phone. In the previous two books I thought that some of the best scenes were the ones [...]

    5. In the Gatekeeper, the third book of the Kelly Jones Thriller series, this dealt with domestic terrorism that serial killers, right in our backyard. This was the best one yet. From Arizona to New York and Texas, this was action-packed with every twist and turn on every page. For Kelly and Jake, this one changed everything, when they've gotten engaged. Kelly worked on a disturbing case of someone dismembering senators, when Jake was sent to work to rescue an abducted teen. But little did they kno [...]

    6. i picked this up in mid-series, but i tell you, i couldn't put it down from page one. michelle has broken the crime/mystery mold here. the plot is completely original, the characters engaging. i've been on a big "Scarpetta" kick recently, but Agent Kelly Jones from "The Gatekeeper" gives Kay a run for her money.

    7. Another winner from Michelle Gagnon. I got this for Christmas 2009 and could not put it down. I like the fact that each of Michelle's novels are unique in premise, setting, plot, etc and yet keep the characters that we have grown to love. I am looking forward to the next one!

    8. Honestly, the weakest of the Kelly books. It starts so strong, but it takes forever for the two plots come together and make sense. Took much longer to read than the others because it wasn't as enjoyable.

    9. This was a really fun fast read. I had not read any of her books before. It kept me interested from the first page till the last. I would definately recommend this for a fun change of pace!

    10. I won this book on First Reads. There was a mix up and I never received it and the author was kind enough to send me out a signed copy!I *REALLY* liked this book. The characters drew me in, and then all the action kept me turning the pages. What's scary is, the premise in the book - I could see it possibly happening.Loved Jake & Syd, and Kelly! Loved how their cases intertwined. Loved all the suspense and the evil politician! Would love to read more by this author!!

    11. Not my type of book at all: politics, terrorism, hate groups - not things that catch my interest or that I enjoy reading about. I got this book because I'd read the previous one featuring these characters. After this one, I'm not sure I'd read more by this author. There were loose ends too, and I'm not even totally sure how it ended (which is probably intentional for the next book, but, again, not the type of ending I like!). Overall, disappointed.

    12. This book is full of action and up-to-date political commentary. Michelle Gagnon does a great job keeping the story going, and tying it all together in the end. Warning: The language is pretty gritty. There are some f-bombs in there. I know it's to make it realistic, but I wish someone could go through and mark them all out for me. :D

    13. I enjoyed the story, particularly the pace. I had no idea what was coming and I was drawn in to keep reading and not put it down. Kelly and Madison were my favorite characters. I thought it was far fetched that Madison would be so smart yet not even tell her best friend about her plan. I also thought there would be more concern and emotion from friends/family surrounding her and Randall.

    14. Two different cases; Kelly's working on finding the person(s) responsible for dismembering a U. S. Senator from Arizona while Jake has his hands full with a new venture, his partner, and finding the kidnapped daughter of a nuclear physicist well versed on radioactive particles. Hate groups, immigration, politics are involved in both cases and when they converge, everything hits the fan.

    15. I won this on first reads.I got this one for a friend of mine who really loved it. She had to call me with every new twist and turn. She said I could not have it back to read it myself. I guess I will have to go borrow it back.

    16. The whole book had one semi-colon in it. The rest of the book was filled with really annoying comma splices that completely distracted me at least once a page.

    17. Not my kind of book but still ok. I'm bias on this review just because this is not my style of book at all but still got me wanting to know how everything ended.

    18. I enjoyed the first half of the ride more than the second but, overall: good fun. I'll be getting the fourth one, too.

    19. A new thriller/writer I picked up at Bouchercon. Started out great, storyline and ending were predictable.

    20. I guess I am getting old, but I had a bit of trouble keeping characters and events straight in my mind - not the fault of the book.

    21. A good mystery with action galore involving two intertwined cases, one a kidnapping and one a terrorist plot.
