It's rather hard for me to give a fair and coherent review for this book. On the one hand, Del Franco's world-building is never less than stellar, his characters are great, and his stories are compelling. On the other hand, I was trying so hard not to pick holes in the plausibility of this series in general and this story in particular that I think I might have sprained my disbelief. One of Laura's jobs is (at least nominally) a desk job, yet she can leave it often enough and for long enough to keep two other personas alive without her boss noticing? The paranoid semi-secret organization where she goes undercover doesn't mind that she's there one day in three, if that? I also particularly dislike books where the Big Reveal of the Evil Plan is perfectly obvious to me well in advance of the main character grasping it--which this was, if only by about 20 pages. It's a shame I have so much trouble with the overall scenario, because I *like* Laura, in all her characters.
