Overview

Cain Casey is close to getting everything she wants. Her partner Emma is pregnant with their third child, her children are safe and happy, and her business is still thriving despite the FBI’s vendetta. Life is perfect on the surface, but it’s the underbelly that worries her. Her long-time enemy Juan Luis and his new partner, rogue agent Anthony Curtis have disappeared; her cousin Muriel has gotten serious about Shelby Philips, the FBI agent in charge of the Casey surveillance team; and her business partner, Remi Jatibon, is facing trouble from her new love Dallas’s secret past.

While Cain struggles to defeat a new enemy—a woman who just may be her equal when it comes to destroying those who stand against her family—an unimaginable betrayal may bring Cain’s charmed life to an end.

The Devil Be Damned is the fourth book in the Casey Family Saga and picks up where Deal With the Devil left off. Cain Casey should be enjoying her life. Her wife Emma is pregnant with their third child, her family is at the height of its power and the FBI is still running in circles trying to prove that Cain has done something illegal. Problems abound however. Cain's organization is still searching for the men who harmed Emma in the last book, drug lords are trying to form a partnership with the Casey empire, cousin Muriel is sleeping with the FBI agent charged with catching Cain and Remi Jatibon, Cain's friend and business partner, is trying to help her lover Dallas Montgomery overcome shadows from her past. Further complicating matters is the arrival of a woman who wants to control New Orleans and unleashes a brutal wave of killing that shocks even the Caseys and the Jatibons. Cain may have met her match this time. Ali Vali is one of the best writers in the genre and has created a unique character in Cain Casey. It's not often that the head of a crime family, who doesn't hesitate to use torture and murder when necessary, is used as the definition of honor, tradition and heroism. Vali uses stereotypes in some areas, specifically making FBI agents fanatics, bumblers or criminals, and plays against type when she gives women dominant positions in an environment that usually expects women to stay in the shadows. The use of women in non-traditional roles gives a lift to the story and a different flavor. The Devil Be Damned illustrates the strongest and weakest aspects of a series. For those fans who have read the previous books, this gives them a chance to catch up with the latest chapters in the lives of some favorite characters. It moves the story forward and allows the reader to reacquaint with Cain, Emma, Remi and the others. Where it falls down is that it's weak as a stand alone novel. There are references to past events with little explanation to set them in context and some of the behaviors in the book don't make sense or seem overblown if the reader doesn't know what's happened before in the saga. The plot lines in this book are also not all resolved. Instead this book is used as a set up for the next in the series. That may be good for selling books, but it's frustrating for a reader. This is an above average book and worth reading; however, for total enjoyment, it really would be good to start with the first book and work forward. That isn't mandatory, but it will increase the appreciation of the book.

I am exhausted from excitement. Make the Cain Casey saga into a movie. Shane from the "L" Word would make a great Cain Casey. I'm impatient for the next part of the story to be revealed. Oh, please, Ali, when is the next in this series going to be released. The only thing that I am disappointed is that the writer doesn't give the reader any clue on when the next book will be released. The suspense is killing me. You commented that Radclyffe was a great mentor, so follow her example and let the readers know when they can expect your next book out.

I dont get all the four and five stars on books like this. This is just another example of bad writing. I guess bold strokes doesnt care much for quality. Sorry but this really sucks and it should never have been published.
