"This is one of those authors you just cannot read enough of. Her books have only what you want in them- action, great characters, wonderful writing, a fabulous mystery or two, and did I say action?! I really like Geri and her man James and the rest of her crew. This is kind of a continuation of the last book, but you could definitely read it as a standalone. Though honestly, why wouldn't you want to read the other books in this series, as they are all 5 star books (IMHO)." - Mary, Goodreads
