4 stars and 2 thumbs up
For me this book had a different pace than the other books in The Shades of Death series Also while Nick Bobbi made a brief appearance, this book featured Tony LeDoux This Special Agent paid a very high price for his obsession with a serial killer, and because of it he lost so very much As usual, great plot with twists I never saw coming I wasn t to sure about Jo but by the end I was all in and cheering for her as well as Tony He needed a win, and finding his niece Tiffany alive would go a long way Past and present collide for Jo, and she finally makes the choice to end the secrets And I really enjoyed the brief visit with Nick Bobbi too Debra Webb has another winner Favorite Quotes Sharing the news of his divorce with his sister had been relatively easy, the career crash and burn, however, was a whole different ball game He didn t want to see the disappointment in her eyes She d always looked at him as if he was a hero, starting the day he d kicked nine year old Lacon Turner s butt for putting gum in her hair.
