The vigilante crime thriller continues as the Kings of New Orleans crime networks slowly reveal themselves.
In Episode Two, we meet Army Ranger Clayton Fury, a.k.a. “The Silver Jester.” His background in Special Ops hand-to-hand combat render him equally matched to the Black Jester’s lethality. But his transgressions in Iraq haunt him and he struggles with PTSD as he learns of his new mission in New Orleans: Rose White. Neither Hell nor high water will stop him from getting to her, and he is prepared to wage war on anyone standing in his way. The Black Jester may have met his match in both ruthlessness and purpose and the question becomes: will they team up for Rose’s benefit, or will they destroy each other?
Meanwhile, hostage Rose White gets an inside view of the Gold Jester’s mind, and learns about the Kings and the birth of the mission. In the process, she becomes self-aware of a burning inner desire to join the Jesters’ fight against corruption and atrocity.
And, a frustrated Detective Jenkins struggles to digest his involuntary meeting with the Jesters and feels even more compelled to bring them down, but decides not to discount the Jesters’ warning that a lethal entity within the city’s government seethes with corruption.

I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review. The Silver Jester, Kings of New Orleans book 2 by Emily Ford 4 stars This story is becoming more intriguing as it goes on. Rose is more connected to so many parts of what is going on, than I think she even understands. As the Silver Jester comes into the picture the dynamics change even more. Each of the Jesters seem to have an interesting back story, with so many secrets they want to keep hidden. I am so interested in seeing where this goes next. I liked this book, and think it is even better than the first.
