About the Book
In 1964, a group of scientists called the Los Alamos Five came close to finishing a nuclear energy project for the United States government when they were abruptly disbanded. Now the granddaughter of one of those five scientists, aerospace engineer Elinor Mitchell, discovers that she has highly sensitive information on the project in her possession–and a target on her back.
SNAP agent and former Navy cryptologist Kekoa Young is tasked with monitoring Elinor. This is both convenient since she’s his neighbor in Washington, DC, and decidedly inconvenient because . . . well, he kind of likes her.
As Elinor follows the clues her grandfather left behind to a top-secret nuclear project, Kekoa has no choice but to step in. When Elinor learns he has been spying on her, she’s crushed. But with danger closing in on all sides, she’ll have to trust him to ensure her discoveries stay out of enemy hands.
Natalie Walters sucks you into the global race for space domination in this perfectly paced second installment of her SNAP Agency romantic suspense series.

In My Opinion
If you read the first book in The Snap Agency series by Natalie Walters, one character probably stood out above the others. Kekoa gets the spotlight in Fatal Code.
Kekoa was introduced to readers as a lighthearted Hawaiian who loves food and to joke around with his team. We still get snippets of that in this book, but when he’s taken out of his element and asked to spy on his neighbor, his doubts creep in and readers see another side of him.
Eleanor is an intelligent woman who is grieving the loss of the person who cared for her, the one she went to with her troubles, and the person who left her some mysteries codes.
There’s a lot going on in this book as far as suspense and while it kept me guessing (what is the villain actually trying to get his hands on? Who is the villain? Are the multiple cases the team is pursuing connected somehow?), there are moments in the book that just don’t make sense for a group of well trained, highly specialized people to have just skipped over. That said, I was fine with suspending my disbelief for the purpose of the plot.
And Walters developed the team well enough that I’ll for sure be reading the next book because Lyla and Garcia need to get out of their own way and give in to the spark between them already.
