Blurb: A murdered prostitute. An obvious suspect. Clear evidence. For once, Jericho Crewe has a straightforward crime to investigate, and Wade Granger isn’t involved.
Review: In this installment Jericho is investigating the murder of the town prostitute. Small towns mean lots of connections. The victim just happens to be friends with Wade’s mom. The prime suspect is a guy Wade knows but things just aren’t adding up. Jericho doesn’t want to believe he did it. This one takes a detour from the investigations on the town’s less than upstanding citizens and takes on a creepy killer vibe. There’s still some plots from the first two books working in the back round. Investigating Wade and corruption in the Police Department but the mystery is about the murder. Then there’s some revelations about Eli’s murder. Forcing Jericho to further question if the law really deals out justice like he wants it to. The lines are getting more and more blurry. Kind of the theme of this series.
Jericho and Wade are still working through their problems but in this book we finally get somewhere. The sexual tension is just as delicious as ever. The push and pull of these two is a mix of utter frustration and on the edge of your seat anticipation. Something breaks in this book between them further complicating Jericho’s position. I LOVE Wade. I love how he talks in riddles and messes with Jericho. I love how he’s a bad guy who won’t cross lines. He’s a bad guy who helps out his own. I can feel his intensity when it’s directed at Jericho and damn but it’s sexy! The chemistry is off the charts between these two. Wade is just a fascinating character. Once again I absolutely recommend this series and this book.
