What a great new crime thriller from this pair, Brilliant paced plot.
It is worth reading the short novella that is available to get full effect of Alex Fox and her background story. Which I devoured, then went straight on to download this book...and again devoured.
 

I have read most of Mel's justice series, and Linda's Jenna James thriller. So know they are great author's. So my expectations of this book were high, and I was going to be critical and hard on them.


I didn't need to be, it is their joint brilliance, a great set of Characters. Alex is feisty, lonely, and out there to catch criminals. Her move from the UK to America hasn't and isn't easy. However, you can't help like her.

The whole storyline was clever, deceptive and pure class.


The characters that are introduced work so well, and are brought to life with humour, sarcasm, and general realism. The quirks of the humour, especially the dialogue between British English and American give a lightness to this dark story.
