Brown keeps her audience guessing as she paints to almost every acquaintance of Jade’s, friend or foe, as a possible suspect in several different cases she is pursuing. She begins to realize that she doesn’t know who to trust, including the President of the United States, Whitney Fairchild.
President Fairchild surrounds herself with strong women in the highest of positions and, in fact, offered Jade a position that the agent declined. They both respect each other though, and the President often calls on Jade when she needs a knowledgeable source in the FBI. it is difficult being President in any situation, and Fairchild has some personal issues that often get in the way of a smooth running government.
Brown does a good job of intertwining both women’s storyline as she alternates chapters featuring one or the other. As in her past books, The Divide gives the reader a satisfying conclusion to some of the storyline but keeps us wondering about several others. I generally dislike books that force me to read the next in the series for answers, but for some reason it seems to work in this instance. I will anxiously await Book 4 in this series.
