Death by Denim by Linda Gerber


Aphra and her mother are on the run. Unsure of who to trust and unable to go home, they hide in France, biding their time until the can catch The Mole, the man responsible for the turmoil in their lives. When their cover is blown, they flee to Paris, where Aphra's mom has a contact. But when that contact turns up dead, bound and gagged with denim, it's clear that The Mole may closer than originally thought. And when Aphra heads to Italy to save Seth Mulo, she inadvertently leads him right into The Mole's trap...

Death by Denim, the third book in Linda Gerber's fun, action-packed, and suspenseful series, is just as riveting as its prequels. Gerber's style is not only modern and down to earth, but cunning and intelligent as well. Fans of the series will be happy to see that Death by Denim focuses on the shifting alliances and the reluctant trust that the characters must put in each other in order to finally track down their nemesis, and get out alive, and provides an answer to a few questions. Aphra is an engaging and lively narrator whose bravery and smarts readers will admire. Equal parts action, romance, and mystery, Death by Denim is a fun-filled and engrossing read that will appeal to fans of Ally Carter's Gallagher Girls series. And once again, Gerber leaves readers hanging, with the suggestion of perhaps another sequel...

Cover Comments: I just love the fun colors and the big cartoon-like graphics on this cover. It really captures the series' sense of fun, but the skulls hint at the more serious aspects of the book as well. It's definitely an attention grabber! (And rumor has it that the actual covers have cut-outs! So fun!)

Death by Denim will be available May 14th, 2009!

Also, have you had the chance to finish The Summoning yet? I saw that you were reading it on GMail, but then you post this review, so I'm just wondering. :)
