Plot Summary
Chameleon is the second novel in the City Of London series by author J Jackson Bentley.  Vastrick Security are hired to keep an African stateswoman alive for 72 hours so she can give a speech to the UN on corruption in her country.  Not too difficult a task but rogue Security forces and African despots want her dead.

My Review

I enjoyed the first one so decided to read the second in the series.  This is much poorer.  It has has become a comedy parody of itself and it's difficult to say how intentional that was.  I can only hope the author doesn't intend for the book to be taken seriously.

It's certainly not as dark as the first one and has some quite bad dialogue.  The plot is actually quite good but the early focus of the book, the African stateswoman is quickly forgotten and it becomes a hunt for the assassin known as the Chameleon.

You know a book gets bad when the author includes themselves in the book even if only in cameo.
