Charlie Madigan, a female cop, is back kicking butt. This time she is out to save her alien partner Hank from a fate that truly is worth than death. Again Gay provides plenty of action in a good mystery with scifi and urban fantasy co-mingled.
Anyone who reads my reviews know I like butt kicking female protagonists. I have missed several books between this and My Review of The Better Part of Darkness which was the first Kelly Gay book I read.
Gay develops her story but focuses primarily on Charlie and her outlook of the skewed world she lives in. Rex has developed into a nicer character. A couple of things occur in this book that logically followed the story line started in the previous books. This book can still be read as a stand alone and enjoyed as such.
Gay titillates the emotions and forces you to love or hate her characters.
I highly recommend the book.
