I think Linda Castillo writes a good book but after you read a couple of her books you find it is the same storyline over and over again. She can only write about  a young woman needing help from either a policeman or a PI. You can read two chapters and know exactly how the story is going to progress.  That is boring!

I liked it. Didn't love it like her newer books. She is a great author and plan to read more of her older books.

This was a great book! I read it again right away because it was such a page turner, I was afraid I read it too fast and missed something.

Good read, interesting plot and good characters but it would have been just as good without the too frequent, too graphic repeat of Kate's "memories".

Assistant District Attorney Kate Megason works the sure thing prosecution on the capital case of Burton Ellis, accused of the brutal murder of two convenience store clerks. However, Kate becomes irritated when her political supervisors assign former cop Frank Matron as her investigator Frank was injured in a Mideast suicide bombing while serving as a deployed reservist. Kate knows that he has not physically healed and assumes that he is also mentally disturbed...................... Frank immediately observes something that makes no sense. The accused took out a hidden camera that he should not have known existed. Even weirder in the robbery gone bad case is the strange fact that not all the loot was taken. Why would he leave anything behind? As Kate begins to heed all that Frank opines, they work together to uncover the truth in spite of someone with connections wanting the real facts to remain buried................... Readers will grip the pages tightly as this tense legal thriller hooks the audience to anticipate a DEAD RECKONING between the ADA and her investigator vs. an unknown brutal individual whose avarice is biblical in proportions. The story line is action-packed starting with Frank proving his worth from the start and never slows down until the final confrontation as the close and shut case becomes open and dangerous. This is suspense at its thrilling finest............... Harriet Klausner
