Review: Magda is the Wet Woman, the one who gets her hands dirty. She is a professional killer-for-hire working with a guy named Mike.
I was intrigued with the idea of the assassin, and I thought that Mike and Magda made a pretty good team. At some point, I even pictured the two as Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in that movie, Mr. and Mrs. Smith. But I had a hard time seeing Magda as a killer with her being so ensconced into a modern family. Was Magda living a double life? Did her family not know she was an assassin? How can she have hot dogs at a family picnic one day and get rid of a dead body the next?
Additionally, I didn’t understand the concept of the “Wet Woman.” What did that mean?
For the most part, the writing was light-hearted and witty. However, there were too many characters and too much information to absorb at one time.
Overall, this was an okay read, but the plot may have been a little too complex.
