Davenport gets to match wits against a professional hitwoman and a lawyer who is known for her ruthlessness. Carla's character and personality - our hitwoman - seemed to waffle between hard ass bitch and uncertain teenybopper. Portrayed initially as cold and methodical, when with Caramel she seemed to let the lawyer sweep her along rather than trusting her instincts. Caramel was just psycho.

This is another book where we get to see inside the killers heads. I'm not wild about this as a plot devise. I'd prefer not knowing every. single. move. the antagonists are making and thinking.

I'm still waffling if this is a book about villains making bad decisions and the cops being very lucky, or if this is a battle of wits between a couple of very smart villains and a smarter Davenport.
