All in all a great read, only complaint, the book was too short, kept me wanting more.
I liked Sam, the female lead detective, who would pop Hershey kisses any chance she got (like breath mints). For the most part she was hard-edged and tough, yet there were moments of vulnerability interspersed. I believe the author was going for a credible edge with this, but sometimes it seemed like Sam was a little too "touchy" and moved to tear up rather easily (personal opinion). This might have had more belonging if it were a full-length novel and we got to know her "inner workings" even better.
Yet, with this said, Sam had lost her sister to murder (which still remains a cold case and served as the motivation for Sam to become a cop), and made these murders touch closer to home. With the victims being women, I suppose it did make it personal for Sam...It just seemed like there was more mention of emotion during the reading of the book than felt natural for a tough cop.
Sam uses her background training in criminal profiling, but I found at times it was like "this is our guy", "oh, no it isn't". Again, that is just a personal observation as well.
All in all, though, an enjoyable read.
From there it's nonstop as Black and other detectives work the crime scene looking for all the right clues that will help them solve the case. If you like your reading tight, action-packed, and fast-paced, you're going to enjoy Deadly Consequences.
You won't be able to put it down once you start.

This wasn't the worst story I have ever read, it kept me interested. However, the misuse of apostrophes was quite distracting.Published on February 19, 2013 by Wilhelmina C. Ostag

I was not familiar to the Sam Black novels. I want a little more substance to my novels. I don't think I will purchase another novel in this series.Published on January 15, 2013 by Mare
