MY REVIEW

 

No End of Bad by Ginny Fite started out with me thinking this will just be so so. It didn’t take long for me to become involved and wondering what would I do if I were sitting in a park, minding my own business, nothing new, just the usual work day and I see some litter, so I pick it up. Before I can say, excuse me, I am jumped on, handcuffed and off to who knows where we go.

 

Innocent until proven guilty? Yeah, right.

 

Accused of being a spy Clayton Turnbull’s life is over as he knows it. But it gets oh so much worse.

 

There are so many awful characters, no morals or scruples, a what’s in it for me attitude, and corruption and greed run rampant. These characters don’t even deserve to be put in jail, they deserve to be buried under it. There is no level they will not go to keep what’s theirs and cover up the evidence before that pesky reporter, or someone else, exposes them.

 

 As will Lenore Cavanaugh, the reporter that is like a pit full. She will not let anything go.

Margaret and Melissa Turnbull will rise above and beyond anything they could have dreamed about.

 

I love a good conspiracy mystery and this is one convoluted tale that goes around the world and back again. Politics and greed rear their ugly heads and run full bore after those who threaten to expose them.

 

I like a book that makes me question things in the real world. I do wonder what percentage of people in the world today believe everything they read in the papers, see on TV and on the internet. Do they get their news from Facebook?

 

Well…loaded with danger, corruption, government rogues running wild around the world, these amazing characters will rise to levels never anticipated to do the right thing, to protect their own and to take down the bad guys, no matter who they are or how high they rise. And it doesn’t stop until the last page is read. Warning: the ending may require tissues.

 

I love this quote from Henry Kissinger:

 

Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean someone isn’t trying to kill you.

 

Here’s a quote from Melissa to her mother, Margaret:

 

“God Mom, there’s just No End of Bad.”

Taking Courage


You have to know I’m terrified of heights. T E R R I F I E D. Like standing on the second step of a ladder to put away a bowl on the top shelf of the kitchen cabinet makes me break out in a sweat. My heart quakes. I won’t even contemplate changing the light bulbs in the ceiling fixture. Maybe it’s a little dark in the kitchen sometimes. If it bothers me, I can always bring in a table lamp.


So when at forty-four I signed up for what was benignly called the “ropes course,” a six day out-of-doors training intended to get clear about my goals and how to achieve them, I never expected that would involve hanging upside down one-thousand feet above a ravine of mature trees, clinging to a thick rope across which I was supposed to pull myself two-hundred feet.


Mid-way, my arms ached. No breath was left in my lungs. I wasn’t going to make it. I was sure I was going to die out there above that chasm. Would they rescue me by helicopter? Did they even have a rescue plan? What would they tell my children? I looked over at the people on the platform yelling for me to keep going. Hopeless, I thought. I’m going to fail.


Somebody yelled, “Scream!” I didn’t need a lot of encouragement. When I screamed, my stomach muscles clenched and I discovered that if I inched my hands up on the rope and dragged my legs forward, I would move. What seemed like three days later, I made it to the platform. The doctor on hand looked into my eyes and declared me okay to continue. I had no idea what came next was rappelling down the side of a mountain.
This feeling of not knowing what I’m doing, of being petrified, found its way into No End of Bad when Margaret climbs out onto a roof to escape assassins and when Lenore interviews the FBI director. They take their courage in their hands and do what must be done.


Writing is far less terrifying than escaping a killer, or completing the Tyrolean Traverse, but it takes persistence to sit down day after day and put one word after the other. It takes courage to look at your work and wade in up to your hips to revise it or throw large chunks of it away.


Courage and persistence are what get us to the other side. Like all the women characters in No End of Bad, we draw on these traits from that inner core of strength we don’t even know we have.

No End Of Bad
No End Of Bad - Ginny Fite

Margaret Turnbull had a great life. She was proud of her house and loved her family but everything changed when her FBI agent husband Clay is falsely arrested and killed by other agents working for a drug cartel. Several members of the FBI are part of a drug ring but the cover up that Clay was working to expose goes even farther up the ladder, even into the White  House. Now because of what Clay knew Margaret and her daughter are no longer safe and assassins will stop at nothing to kill her and silence anyone who knows the truth about the drug ring. 

 

No End Of Bad by Ginny Fite is a political/conspiracy thriller with a human touch. What drew me to the story was I thought it would be interesting to see how a normal housewife deals with her world falling apart and having to deal with a dangerous situation where she's over her head. You do get that story but there is a lot more going on. Which brought me to the part of the book I didn't like which was there were two many sub plots. I would have liked to have heard the whole book through the point of view of Clay, Margaret and their daughter Melissa. Instead we also get the story of several other characters from high level people in Washington to drug dealers involved in the ring.

 

All in all though this is an enjoyable book, there are several pieces to it and it was interesting to see how it all came together. I also enjoyed how some of it felt like I was reading a newspaper. The author is a journalist so it makes sense. I also enjoyed how her point of view on politics and the FBI came through in the story. I wouldn't say this book is action packed but it does have a good story, good characters and a realistic look at how things work in Washington D.C.
