In this book, FBI Special Agent Violet Darger is still recovering from her injuries in her previous book, but she has been recently cleared to return to duty. At the request of her partner, Special Agent Victor Loshak, Darger cuts her vacation short in order to fly to Detroit to assist with what sounds like a routine homicide investigation. Once she gets there, she realizes that this is perhaps a bit more involved than originally thought.
As usual, the story is fast-paced and engrossing, and I had a hard time putting it down. I don't want to give spoilers, but there's a bit of a cliff-hanger at the end that has me eagerly awaiting the next book in the series.
These are GOOD things, realistic things, and showcase the great diversity the authors are capable of. Darger need not be pidgeon holed into the role of David versus the Serial Killer Goliath each time she appears. The FBI performs other investigations too! There's kidnapping, drug related crime, trying to prevent a presidential candidate from being elected, organized crime, and much more! Loshack is a great character, but its unreasonable to believe he would be within arms length of Darger in every case.
The hitman is a machine, but the authors manage to humanize him. Humanize him so well, in fact, that the reader is bereft of the movie cliche one dimensional killing machine that excuses everyone from passing judgement. This is a good thing, as we all contain elements of good and bad.
In retrospect, this isn't the time chomping, anxiety filled Violet Darger novel we have come to know and love, but it's a great read, for all the differences. Plenty of twists and turns between the covers to keep you reading on, and a good deal of peril too!
By the end of the book you'll be struck with all the anxiety you thought was missing, and then some!
Now, I must head out to a Coney Island for some victuals!
FBI Agent Violet Darger has spent the past six months trying to recover from a bullet to the head. She still has debilitating head aches she takes narcotics for. When she hears from her partner, Loshak, about an interesting case in Detroit, she convinces him to let her join him for a few days. Violet has a vacay planned with her lover, Owen. What is more important to her? Violet is not a team player! Investigating on her own could get someone killed. That part is annoying; it’s like the person in the movies hearing a noise in the basement and going to investigate alone. You know?
Violet doesn’t always think clearly, but this storyline is exciting and entertaining. The ending is a total surprise!
