As you might expect from the title, this is the 18th in the series about PI Kinsey Milhone. I wouldnt recommend starting the series with this one, I think the author has developed the character in such a fashion that a new reader cant just fall into this world. In truth if you haven't read any of these by now, you're not interested anyway. In this outing, Kinsey is hired by a dying rich man to watch over his daughter Reba for a few weeks as she gets out of prison. Its quickly apparent that Reba has no guilt over her conviction for embezzlement, and no intention of going straight. Reba is a great character and the plot moves along quickly, with some interesting twists happening. What I didn't like was Kinsey's cooperation with Reba in some things you'd think a licensed PI wouldn't really do; and I felt like Kinsey really ought to have been quicker on the uptake about Reba's motivations. She seems pretty wishy-washy in this book, like anyone could have convinced her of anything if they'd just put on enough pressure. All in all, it kept me reading, and its not the worst in the series, but I don't think its the best either.
