Intense, exciting, and interesting. Tess and Abby are back, reluctantly working together. It may be a bit unbelievable how the whole mess turns out, but still totally enjoyable to read.
The problem I had with the last book by this author was that from the beginning I knew who the villain was, the author made it clue very early on. I didn't find the characters or the story very interesting and it seemed as if the author didn't care about those things either. This book started out with the same set-up, the villain is established early, but the character that sets out to bring him down is very interesting. Her name is Abby and she stalks stalkers for a fee. She is manic, has socio...more

Interesting cast of characters - including the two leading female detectives, who, as far as I can tell, are both rather unappealing people, though talented at their job. One is a neurotic and violent step-removed-from-a-criminal, and the other is a dishonest and untrustworthy paranoid. Strange couple for a pretty standard thriller. Greedy evil politicians, ex-con druggie bikers, a woman imprisoned for infanticide...the litany of charmers never stop.

Strangely enouogh, the book is intriguing and...more
Definite page turner.

Abby, my new hero, is amazing. She weaves a fine line between getting the bad guy and being taken over by evil. Tess struggles being a true friend and a needy self centered Fed. I couldn't wait to move onto the next book in the series with Abby as the main character.

I like the Abby Sinclair series, she is a great heroine that I find easy to relate to. Always up against some sick twisted creep, and sometimes a bit more graphic than I care for, but exciting and a page turner as well.
This was the best in the series so far. Teaming up Tess with Abby makes it much more interesting since they tackle catching the bad guys from opposite perspectives. Looking forward to Final Sins.
Again, I made the mistake of picking up a book and not realizing it's not the first in the series. I enjoyed this book, but it was a bit long. I will probably pick up the first few books.
Good mix of action, introspection, character development and dialog. Good story and pacing. No that of literature bogging down the story.
I must say I'm loving the Abby Sinclair & Tess McCallum characters. I can't wait to read more with those two. Fantastic story.
Stephenie Patterson
I loved this book. It did seem this was the second in a series, though, so I think I'm going to search for the first!

Private investigator Abby Sinclair and FBI agent Tess McCallum team up in another fast-paced thriller.
Oh this book made me so angry with Tess! She definitely took a back seat to Abby in this book!

This was an exciting, page-turning book. The characters are well developed.
