Overview

Private detective thriller with a touch of romance, reader’s call THE DEVIL’S BREATH “A master mystery”

Emily Kimelman's best selling Sydney Rye series feature a strong female protagonist and her canine best friend, Blue. It is recommended for the 18+ who enjoy some violence, don't mind dirty language, and are up for a dash of sex. Not to mention an awesome mystery with tons of action that will keep you reading late into the night!

One of Sydney Rye’s dearest friends, Hugh Defry, has been accused of brutally murdering his business partner. All the evidence points to Hugh and he has no memory of that night. But Sydney refuses to believe that Hugh is capable of such violence.

Called to investigate by Robert Maxim, a man she has, until now, considered her greatest enemy, Sydney flies to Miami searching for the real killer. Her investigation leads her from the mansions of Star Island to the depths of the Everglades. Rye’s suspicions are raised when she learns that Robert Maxim not only wants to work together, but also wants to build a friendship. She doesn’t begin to understand Maxim's motives until her former lover, Dan, arrives in Miami to tell her a devastating secret.

As more people from her past turn up, and not knowing whom to trust, Sydney begins to recognize that her personal fight for justice has become much more than she'd ever imagined. Sydney is pushed towards making a decision that will change not just her life, but possibly the future of crime fighting.

    Mildly interesting. The plot is good, but the story just stops

    Mildly interesting. The plot is good, but the story just stops dead in what appears to be the middle of everything. It then picks up with a superficial explanation of why the action stopped dead and moves on to the storyline for the next book.

    The 'bad' language used by the main character comes across as contrived and unnecessary. And... the author needs to do some more research on her Dade and Monroe County geography as much of the info is simply incorrect.

    All things considered, the book was okay, but I wouldn't buy any more in the series.

    Wonderful book

    What a lovely find here amongst the free books. I would definitely purchase more from this author. A relatively fafaast paced, action packed book. You do not need to have read the others to be able to enjoy this one. I started with number 5 and look forward to reading number 6

    Would not recommend

    Although this is the 5th in a series by this author, it's not necessary to read the other books - and I am pretty sure I wouldn't want to, anyway. The backstory is given at the beginning. At any rate, this story begins so slowly, and the characters are so unlikeable and 1-dimensional, that I just couldn't get through it. The main character apparently kills a lot of people and has sex a lot, often with co-workers. The first situation she finds herself in is so improbable that I just stopped reading it after that (the scene in the dress shop). The other characters aren't much better - boundary-violating tough guys who, for some reason, the main character lets push her around. As for the dog, the author may have just as well had him talk, since he is a cross between a cozy mystery animal and a regular dog...that at least might have made the book interesting. In short, I didn't like any of the characters and the plot was so mundane and slow-moving that I put it down not too long after beginning to read it. And it will be deleted off my Nook as soon as I finish this review.

    The fifth in a series, so if you aren't up to date, you may want to pause here and go read the first books in the series.  Most of these books are just over the novella length, so don't feel like it will take you awhile to get caught up.  Take a weekend and you can maybe get to this point.

    Sydney is back in the States and back to help right a wrong.  One of her friend's Hugh is being accused of murdering someone and he has no recollection of the murder or really the evening - so Sydney to the rescue with her team behind her to help find the real murderer.

    Excellent escape series. Great quick read.

    I have enjoyed reading all books in this series. They are fast paced adventures. Some strong language and adult situations.

    Great Novel

    I am reading the books by Sydney Rye. I have enjoyed the little touch of humor and the mystery involved in the books dealing with pets. Great stories.
