This is the fifth book in the Alex Delillo Mystery series.

In Pasadena, due to the heat wave there has been a series of power blackouts. Lieutenant Alex Delillo and her squad expect that the power failures will bring robberies. But Alex receives a cryptic phone call, informing her the blackouts will bring something far worse than she expected. Someone is using the convenient cover of darkness for murder! Eek!

The opening of this book really made me feel for Alex, we joi

I liked ths - I especially liked that everything described in the blurb has happened by page 20 so instead of spending ages building up the tension, it launched straight into it. I liked the characters and how they had a short backstory which wasn't overpowering. While I liked the plot, I found after a while that there were too many people to keep track of and I was confused.

Well, it was nice to dive back into the adventures of Delillo and Harrison. Frost develops their characters and relationship well in this 5th installation. A very interesting villain really keeps the suspense going, all until the extremely disappointing ending. I won't spoil anything, because spoliers are just wrong, but the ending is such a letdown, it ruined the book for me, so I figured I'd review it so other Frost fans could have the opportunity to avoid this book.

Really enjoyed this book only problem was that the ending seemed a bit rushed. With so much build up to it i thought it would be a bit more detailed but overall a really scary and thrilling read!
