Chicago Thomas (AKA Windy) moves to Vegas to start a new life after something traumatic happens in Virginia. Windy is a cop investigating a serial killer targeting families. Windy's is working closely with her gorgeous boss, Ash Laughton. The romance is inevitable and rather sweet.
There are lots of surprises and many plot twists. This is one book that keeps you guessing until the last page. The crimes are brutal and fully described. (So if you're squeamish, skip this book!) What wonderful characters Michele Jaffe has created in both Windy and Ash. Too bad this isn't a series as I would enjoy reading more featuring these two.
In depth police procedural that never had a slow moment. I really enjoyed the main character, she was so real to me. The murders were pretty graphic, so certainly not a cozy. The serial killer was pretty twisted, but is it who you think it is? Read the book and find out!!
