Move over Bluebloods, 24, Blacklist, and Criminal Minds and make room for Defender! Defender is a well-written and well-researched novel that is very difficult to stick in just on genre as it has a mix of genres inside of it. I personally found the plot line and the characters to be all well developed. I personally found Kate Greenwood to be my favorite character. It is hard not to like a woman who is willing to help someone stranded and injured on the side of the road without a clue of who he is. I really enjoyed Kate’s interactions with Gareth and I enjoyed watching their relationship develop and evolve over the course of the book. I also really liked the fact that the authors were donating 10% of the proceeds to ovarian cancer research and patient malpractice advocacy. Overall, I greatly enjoyed reading about Kate Greenwood and Agent Gareth Dru McFadyn and I hope the authors decided to write a follow up novel.
