Good storyline. Black widows as the weapon of choice is a refreshing break from guns and knives.

    Okay, the dialog is a bit clunky.  So much so in the beginning I stopped and looked up reviews.  Decided to keep going.  I thought it was very good.  Interesting MO on the killer and a surprise reveal of his identity.  There were A LOT of people groups represented - Hispanic, Muslim, Asian, Native American - many revealed through the use of their full name in the telling of the story.  I found the use of full names awkward in their over use.  Having said that, the book is very good.  I would recommend it and do as I did, skim over the parts that bug you.

    I think that this book was imaginative in its storyline. It is a great first choice if you want to read about characters from the beginning. I recommend it.

    In Cause of Death, Detectives Avant and Weston are out to find a serial killer who tortures victims with black widow spiders prior to their deaths. There are also a few side stories which add to character and plot development as well as hinting at potential upcoming romances in future volumes.

    Aside from a few typos and spacing issues, which could be due to the fact I was reading an ARC, the text and story line flows very well with exhilarating action.

    There were a couple of details that seemed to switch or get confused at one point, but as they were minor details they weren't distracting to the story line.

    The characters were very authentic and true to life. The villain was not one dimensional which I greatly appreciated. The details for the investigations, scenery, and story in general were vivid and imaginable.

    Overall, an enjoyable read!
