I really enjoyed this mystery, but I couldn't bring myself to give it five stars because some of the character decisions bummed me out. The murder and its featured case of victims and suspects in this book are almost surely the best Davis has given us yet. The mystery aspect was well paced, features attention holding and colorful key players, and has just enough subtle misdirection to leave you sure you've got it when you really haven't more then once. However, I was sad that some supporting cast I had grown to love were missing (Humphrey for example), and I felt like Mars was being crammed down my throat whether I liked it or not. In fact, the whole reasoning behind Sophie dropping Wolf was so weak that when coupled with the intense focus on a more lovable and less slippery Mars then we have ever seen before (he almost felt like a totally new character) I got the feeling Davis was being forced to manufacture some sort of love triangle that wasn't coming to her authentically.To be fair, I have a feeling we haven't seen the last of Wolf, as (spoiler) the idea that he is going to get right back together with his long lost wife is too ridiculous to bare, leaving me fairly certain there will be a change in that circumstance in the next book. We'll see! Regardless, I would have rather seen Sophie have a fun fling with hot Troy then read more of this recreating of Mars for the better and Wolf for the worse.

This was a good read and seemed to have more storylines than her previous. I cannot give a 5 star because the kiss and Mar's confession about his feelings from the last book was not developed. I was also very sad concerning Wolf and Sophie's relationship. I do hope we haven't heard the last. I really liked them together (SPOILER).Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
