Once again Rickey Blair has taken Ruby and Hari and added a collection of identifiable characters that make you feel like you have always known them. Some you will like, be careful, and some you will despise.
Of course this mystery is also about worldwide accounting fraud and murder(s); for a warm up, write down your guess before you start the book. Hari also has a friend with advantages in this book. However the author tends to indicate that there is an undercurrent of suppressed attraction between Ruby and Hari maybe this mystery will finally solve question.
Once again, as the reader approaches the resolution to the mystery and the loose ends are tied up, another loose string appears. At the end of this new string, the book then comes to its final conclusion. The reader may be able to ascertain the root of first mystery early in the book; however the second mystery only takes shape on the next page after the author closes the first mystery. Pay attention to the story because no clue is to the both mysteries are there for you.
I strongly recommend this book and look forward to book three in this series. I really need to see Ruby’s final curtain call and if Hari is at the stage door.
'Dangerous Benefits' was quite a thrilling read. The storyline was full of mystery, deceit, suspense and action. The way it played out had me quite surprised at some of the secrets that came out. I wasn't sure if I would be lost as to what was going on since I didn't read book one 'Dangerous Allies' in 'The Ruby Danger Series' first. But I was able to follow the story and understand the overall premise. Forensic Accounting is a subject I won't even pretend to understand, yet the way Hari described it and dealt with it, I actually understood it. The characters were great and well developed. Ruby was a great lead. I loved her 'innocent' act when she would approach her wild, though helpful tactics. A great add to your tbr list. I look forward to reading book one. Recommended.

I liked how Hari has a better role - and the way that he and Ruby are banding together to overcome the events in the first book. While the first book is referenced, if you haven't read it, you will not be lost on the second book. It is a stand-alone book that does not rely on the reader having read the first book, which is nice. It will be a good way to hook in new readers. The feel of this book is a little different from the first, as it is isn't in such a confined setting. The plot unfolds nicely, and is neither rushed nor too slow. This is a good book, very enjoyable and I only had one real thing about it that made it a four star book not a five star book.
At times, the author tried a little too hard to showcase Ruby as Ruby Danger not Ruby Delany (the eye rolling, sticking out her tongue, bratty behavior, etc.) and that caused me to disconnect slightly from the character, but then again, she is an actress with a troubled past and so it is fitting for the character and just a personal pet peeve of mine, not an actual strike on the book.
