Even in an age of cutting-edge technology, old beliefs die hard...
Conducting a top secret investigation into the death of a fellow police officer has Lieutenant Eve Dallas treading on dangerous ground. She must put professional ethics personal loyalties. But when a dead body is placed outside her home, Eve takes the warning personally.
I enjoyed this book, the writing was good, the suspense along with a little romance made a good recipe for a read that kept me actively thinking all the way through. It had an interesting exploration of white and black witchcraft as a central part of the story. And while the violence is a little gory, the humour is a good foil for it.
I particularly enjoyed the role young Jamie played in this book, he seemed a good match in skill for both Eve and Roarke. I hope we meet him in future books somewhere.
I am way behind in this series, however that is good as I can read them as soon as I chase down the next one.
