Présentation de l'éditeur

Dani, a data analyst with an elite security firm, possesses the unnerving ability to read people by the trash they leave behind. Receipts, parking tickets, the detritus of daily life—if you leave it behind, she will figure you out.

Her latest case involves high-tech industrial espionage at a corporation with ties to the military. But when a team of assassins sweeps through the firm, stealing all files and killing her coworkers, Dani narrowly escapes. Whoever ordered the strike thinks Dani has vital information and they put a hit man named Booker on her trail.

Armed with only her wits and a bag of random investigation materials, Dani must figure out who the enemy really is while playing a high-stakes game of cat and mouse with the cunning hit man who has an agenda of his own.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Terrifying thriller stars short, nerdy heroine 10 septembre 2013
Par Jaylia3 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
This book starts in a leisurely fashion then quickly takes off, setting the fastest pace of any book I've read recently. Almost all of the action takes place in one breath-taking harrowing day, but though the book gripped and terrified me so much I could hardly put it down, a short summary of The Widow File--a thriller set in an elite security firm--would not necessarily have made me want to read it. Luckily I've learned to trust S. G. Redling's skill as a storyteller, and if you look a little closer at the description there are clues this thriller is going to be special, the most important being that the main character Dani isn't glamorous, she's short and nerdy and reads people by examining their trash.

Rasmund, the security firm Dani works for, uses her idiosyncratic talents to thwart industrial espionage for high paying corporate clients. Though she's quite fond of her co-workers she's something of a loner, and gets so caught up in her work she's disappointed when their most recent job is cancelled. Since she takes her work home she has to go back to her apartment to retrieve materials--in her case it's mostly trash--that must be returned to the client, but when she gets back to Rasmund she finds all her colleagues dead, shot by the very thorough team of assassins she's now trapped in the building with.

To stay alive she must escape and stay one step ahead of the determined hit man who is sure she has something he wants, though Dani has no idea what it is. Her only weapons are a quirky intelligence that notices patterns other people don't, and the canny habits she learned from her truck driving father on their cross country trips together.

Widow File is the third book I've read by S. G. Redling, and I highly recommend them all. Though their settings and circumstances are impressively varied, so far each of her novels features an off-beat female character whose personal drama is part of a monumental event. Widow File has Dani caught up in what looks like some kind of industrial terrorism, Flowertown has a deadbeat junkie trapped in a massive chemical containment disaster that poisons and permanently quarantines a town full of people, and in Damocles the main character is a lone linguist in the midst of engineers, all thrown together on a long-term space mission in search of human-like life forms that results in first contact.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Action-Packed, Twisty Thriller 19 octobre 2013
Par K. M. Martin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
THE WIDOW FILE was a gritty, realistic thriller with a very complicated plot. Dani works for an exclusive and secretive investigative firm outside Washington, D.C. She is what they call a Paint. Her specialty is learning about a person by the garbage they leave behind. She is a quiet, private person whose only friends are her colleagues at work but the friendships are surface, "work" friendships.

When the boss tells them to drop their current case and pack up all materials gathered, Dani has to take a quick trip home to get evidence she had left there. When she returns, she finds most of her colleagues dead and a team of killers searching the house for evidence and any stragglers. Dani does manage to hide and then escape to the roof where she finds another colleague - Choo Choo. Together the two of them manage to elude the kill team and go on the run.

Besides telling the story from Dani's viewpoint, we get the viewpoint of the hired assassin who orchestrated the invasion of Dani's workplace and who is still determined to find and kill Dani. He doesn't have any respect for the people who hired him but he is interested in Dani. The two of them begin a phone relationship though neither can trust the other.

The story was filled with gritty realism. We see Dani's terror and confusion as she is on the run from an unknown enemy. We watch her get so tired that the idea of giving up seems reasonable. We see her stubbornness as she tries to outwit her unknown enemy. She will need to be careful, clever and lucky to get out of this situation alive.

My main problem with this thriller was that I never did figure out who the bad guys really were and who they were working for. But, since this was Dani's story, I could overlook that as I watched the way Dani survived. Fans of thrillers will enjoy this action-packed story.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Gives Hit-Men a Bad Rap 5 décembre 2013
Par Timothy J. Mccarthy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
Let’s assume that you’re a super-smart geeky type named Dani, who works with a bunch of kindred spirits at a very elite company specializing in corporate counter-espionage. One day a para-military team breaks in and kills nearly everybody there, while grabbing the records for your latest client. You escape certain death by a whisker, and drive quickly away; but Tom, the hit-man who runs the team, knows you were there and is hot on your tail. He’s even thoughtful enough to call you and let you know he’s coming! Next, you: a) head to the nearest law enforcement agency, bare your soul, and demand protection; or, b) for no obvious reason avoid the police, put on your Nancy Drew hat, follow the clues, and try to solve the crime, while fantasizing about the hit-man and having long, soppy telephone conversations with him. If you chose “b”, you might just like this book.

The back cover of my copy of this book claims it’s a “fast-paced thriller of uncommon intrigue.” I would call it a confused semi-action kinda-romance with silliness masquerading as intrigue. Tom isn’t your standard killer; he gets aroused rifling Dani’s underwear drawer and feels really, really bad about needing to kill her. He spends a lot of time thinking mushy thoughts about her though, rather than getting on with the business at hand. Dani and her friend, Choo-Choo (I’m not making this up!) enjoy an evening with cocktails while leisurely examining clues, even though they know that Tom knows their location. She’s totally blasé about the strong probability of her impending and messy demise. Oh, she thinks about it a bit but then, you know, she like thinks about other stuff. Eventually you’ll find out what’s behind all this, and the silliness morphs into clichéd absurdity.

This is no gritty chiller taking you for a terrifying and believable walk down the mean streets. If you are looking for a romantic novel with a bit of kick to it, here you are. If you’re looking for a realistic, believable thriller, sorry; you’ll just have to keep on looking.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 When Is Reality ... Not Reality? 25 août 2013
Par Bonnie Cehovet - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
"The Widow File" is one of the best written, most exciting books that I have read in a long time! It is a mystery extraordinaire, a psychological character study, and a true reflection of our times. The principle character, Dani, is a data analyst for an elite security firm. She has her own unique method of dong things ... she examines the trash that people leave behind, coming up with who they are, and what makes them tick. In her business you have to remain a few steps ahead of everyone else. What Dani is going to find out is that through a violent twist of fate, she is going to have to use her skills to save her own life.

Her latest case, high tech industrial espionage, has just been closed down. No reason given ... simply closed down. Her team has to gather all materials related to the case, and return them to their client. Dani has a tendency to take things home with her, so she has to make a quick trip home to get the material to meet the deadline for returning it.

She is in for a shock when she gets back to the company ... a team of assassins has swept through the firm, killing everyone! And ... they are still in the building! Dani escapes, but the assassins know that she has escaped ... and they think that she has vital information with her.

The ensuing chase is a slice of life about espionage, high tech security, politics in general, what makes people tick, and how one stays alive long enough to have a future. Fast paced, well written, and highly believable ... this is a great read that I look forward to returning to!

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Don't bother with this so-called thriller 12 décembre 2013
Par D. Safir - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I got this book as a Prime member, to read before it's out for the general public. So I get to tell the general public not to bother reading this so-called thriller. The characters are cardboard and drawn with no depth whatsoever. The protagonist, Dani, gets a bit more personality than the rest, but not so much that you really care about her. The dialogue is wooden and the plot totally confusing. You never really know what it's all about, even when it's finished. And the worst part of it is that you don't really care. The only good thing about it is that it is short - less than 200 pages. I see that it got 4 stars on Amazon. I can only say that people are way too generous. I don't want to waste any more words on this. That is my opinion. Play Solitaire instead, or find a real thriller, like anything by Andrew E Kaufman, or Alan Russell. Sorry, S.G., no offense.
