Some cases are unusual - even for Jill Kismet.

When her police contact asks her to look into a "suicide", she suddenly finds herself in a labyrinth of deception, drugs, murder — and all-too-human corruption. The cops are her allies, except for the ones who want her dead. The hellbreed are her targets, except for the ones who might know what's going on. Her city is in danger, time is running out, and each lead only draws her deeper.

How far will a hunter go when her city — and her friends — are on the line?

Just far enough.

It's amazing what Jill Kismet, the main character in this series, goes through in order to keep her city clean of hellbreed. I don't know how she does it and lives day-to-day. Fortunately, she has her lover Saul, a were-cougar, other were friends, cops, and other friends in her corner who help out from time to time. But really, it's all about her, and how she survives. This series is non-stop action, and completely crazy! I'm definitely reading the next book in this series!

I enjoyed the first two books in this serious, but when I was about half-way through this book, Redemption Alley, I felt like I was having a serious case of deja vu. Jill Kismet is an awesome character, however, NOTHING EVER CHANGES for her. In three books, she has neither moved forward nor backward. She even says the same couple things in every book! I know some will say, "well, she got married in the last book" and yes, she did, but we didn't experience that with her and her introduction to Saul's were-family and the community would have been fantastic for the readers. I feel extremely disappointed by Ms. Saintcrow; it seems that she has a template for this series that allows her to change a few key points and publish book after book that are full of incredibly similar work. I have never given up on a series half-way through it (and I read, on average, one book every other day), but I'm finished with this one...I cannot bare to see a character with so much potential completely disregarded by her creator, who I believe is so obsessed with people stealing her books that she is mass producing them to make money (check out her blog if you'd like to better understand what I mean).

Having just rescued a teen from a Trader, Hunter Jill Kismet knows her vocation allows no vacation. Her Santa Luz police department contact Detective Montaine asks Jill to look into the suicide of a cop; Officer Marvin Kutchner ate his Glock two months ago. The deceased has not returned from the grave so is outside of Kismet's cases. However, Montaine says Kutchner was his partner at one time and he would never take his own life. Kismet notices the popular police candy Tums unopened and the police hydrator whiskey almost filled so decides to help her contact obtain closure by investigating the death so that the bottles remain practically filled. The simple case turns convoluted and deadly as allies prove false and enemies prove loyal. Cops want her dead and Hellbreed have damning information they offer to her. As she digs deeper and deeper, Jill finds links to disappearances and begins to uncover a hellish conspiracy that places the city in danger unless she can finish peeling back the onion in time with the help of another Hunter and some Were. The third invigorating Jill Kismet investigative urban fantasy is as vivid and violent as the previous thrillers (see NIGHT SHIFT and HUNTER'S PRAYER) in this action-packed take no prisoners without blood flowing saga. The story line is faster than the speed of light as the heroine jumps feet first into the hellish fire as nothing is what it seems. Filled with great twists, Lilith Saintcrow provides a stunning Kismet entry as the Hunter affirms Schwartz's tenet that Murphy is a god damn optimist. Harriet Klausner

while I do enjoy the story line I am tired of reading about Jill having yet another near death experiance. I realize her character is a hunter and that is part of the roll but the constant head trama and crushed rib cage damage is getting old, have her character be more cautious or learn to duck! No need for balls to the wall ALL the time.

A rip-roaring read in many ways but one that falls just a little short. It's hard to be entirely sure why - I think the missing Saul (who is visiting his dying mother) is a bit overdone and detracts from the rest of the story.As for the rest, it's satisfyingly complex with lots of people with conflicting agendas for Jill to try and sort through. There's some truly horribly implications too, but they'd count as big spoilers.There's lots of violence, little soul-searching but just enough to make it real and a good satisfying A-story.

So I don't know when it happened, but romance has become an integral quality in my enjoyment of a book. And as Saul is out of town for all of this book, there is absolutely no romance in it. I did not enjoy it as much as I enjoyed the first book in this series. It took me forever to get through, and I was only really sucked in for about ten pages in all. Its gritty and action packed, so if those are your book needs, it will fill them.
