I swear I think I've become obsessed with these darn books. Form the minute I start one I literally CANNOT put it down until I finish it. Now this one ended in a place where I definitely HAVE to read the next one.

A great story, but I was disappointed with the "ending". It was left up in the air, and you need to buy the next book to find out what happened to one of the characters. It was as if the book was not properly finished. I felt there were enough unknowns and interest factors to encourage the reader to purchase the next book without leaving the fate of one of the main characters hanging.

These books are incredibly addictive and as you can see from my reading list, I am reading them at the rate of knots. I have been devouring this series and every other series this author has written. What I will note, is that the books seem to be getting shorter at the same price point and the editing leaves a lot to be desired. However, the stories just bring me back for more and more and more.

Another brilliant detective murder mystery with the enigmatic protagonist, Avery Black. As usual Blake Pierce's writing is pure genius. His characterisations are perfect and pitches the pace perfectly. I've loved all his work to date and long may I continue to do so.

Fast paced with great plot with believable characters and plot. The ending was not expected since its begs the next book. Had the next not been available now I would have been pissed. But it is and I’m starting today
