About the Author
S.G. Redling is the author of Damocles, Flowertown, and The Widow File—the first novel featuring charismatic hit man Tom Booker. She was born in Hoboken, New Jersey, and raised in West Virginia. After graduating from Georgetown and living in New York City and California for a time, she re-settled in West Virginia and launched a fifteen-year career in morning radio. Redling still lives and writes in West Virginia, simultaneously pursuing obsessions with locavore dining, sustainable gardening, and international travel.

Nine months later, Dani is now mostly healed, but she still bears both the physical and psychological scars of the attack. Determined to put her past as far behind her as physically possible, Dani takes a job at a fishing camp called Jinky's on Redemption Key in south Florida. She's basically doing grunt work--cleaning rooms, making repairs, wrangling kayaks and tending bar. She's also vigorously working out, attempting to get back into shape and otherwise trying to keep her head as far down as possible.
A place like Redemption Key naturally attracts a lot of odd, strange and curious characters. Many of them, like Dani, are on the run; not all of them live within the strict confines of the law. The owner of the place where Dani works is a guy named Oren Randolph. Randolph is basically a good guy and a good boss, but he does provide a service to various criminal elements. His fishing camp, far off the beaten track, is an excellent place for people to do deals that they'd rather not consummate in the light of day. For a fee, of course, Randolph provides the meeting room and serves as a facilitator, keeping the peace between and among parties who are not always peaceful and who do not always trust each other.
Dani's area of expertise while working for the security company involved her uncanny ability to "read" people. Randolph soon recognizes her talent in this regard and begins assigning her to tend bar and serve food and drinks at the meetings he's facilitating. She can read the mood of the room and of the meeting participants and help Randolph keep things on an even keel.
Inevitably, though, sooner or later one of these complex negotiations is bound to blow up, causing major problems for everyone involved, Dani included. And when it does finally happen, it couldn't come at a worse time, because other dangerous threats from the life Dani fought so hard to leave behind are suddenly converging on her once again.
It would not be fair to say any more about the plot, but Redling has created here a cast of very intriguing, off-beat characters and dropped them into a well-drawn setting and a riveting story. The tension mounts with every page, and the climax is as unexpected as it is heart-pounding. This is another excellent entry in this young series.
Pros: very fluid storyline with good character development. Really captured the feel of Florida.
Cons: the main reason I bought this was the thrilling psychological aspects of TWF. Thought processes were explained but never felt redundant or dummies down. I really enjoyed how a mind far more advanced then mine, thought in certain situations. This book did not have that aspect at all. It was a quick read, it took me 2 hours. I like to be absorbed a little longer!
But all in all, it keeps you guessing. But I guessed correctly on most items. Which I hardly ever do. So, just an average book for me. But I am not giving up on this author, I loved flowertown and TWF. I will read more by her!
The story centres around a ' deal' that is being brokered by her boss and some local bad guys.
People from her past turn up and complicate matters until every thing turns to ........
A fast action read with a different twist to the very end.
All in all, it's a decent read (good writing, easy to follow, kept my interest enough to finish it). A lot of people complain about the ending, but honestly, I didn't mind it at all. There wasn't much else to tell after the main conflict was resolved. There was never going to be a tidy bow wrapped up for all of the characters anyway.
