Jared McNeil, of Maryland's Special Crime Unit, who loves Jennie, vows to protect her and bring down Mendoza, but a serial killer who also targets Jennie complicates matters. Jared's family and even Jennie's deceased relatives add still more complications, until at last Jennie knows she must face Mendoza alone or she will never be free to love Jared.
Nancy Weeks piles on the suspense and the sexual tension in this story, until the reader can't see how Jennie and Jared can ever be together. Jennie is a strong heroine who deserves Jared's love and devotion in spite of the evil that casts its shadow over their romance.
The timeline of Evil is June 2005 to March 2013. When the story starts out Jennie McKenzie is 16 years old and 23 year old undercover agent Jared McNeil is trying to get her way from Elias Mendoza who is a ruthless crime boss. But she wont leave without her foster brother who has come under the spell of Mendoza. What Jennie doesn't know is Mendoza has a personal vendetta against her family who she is the last of and he is never letting her go. In the showdown of trying to get away her foster brother is killed and Mendoza gets away but not before telling her you live because I allow it.
When we jump to eight years later we find Jennie is a school teacher that recently witnessed her 10 year old student being gunned down right in front of her. She knows its Mendoza letting her know he is still watching her and she can't get away from him. She has been in love with Jared since she was 16 but after Mendoza captured and torchuring him two years ago she vows to stay away from him for his own protection.
During the 8 years since meeting Jennie, Jared cant get her out of mind. She doesn't know it but there is still an uncover op going on that his brother is in charge of trying to bring Mendoza down. These two star crossed lovers try to stay away from each other thinking they are keeping the other alive by doing so but when Jennie is targeted and attacked by a serial killer (the one from the first book) and one of her students is taken Jared decides he's done hiding his feelings for Jennie and is never leaving her side again.
All the McNeil brothers play a big part in this book. We actually get a better glimpse of them in this one than we did in the first book. The whole Mendoza story line throughout the book kept you on the edge of your seat wondering if she would ever be free of this truly evil man. As with the first book there were also some paranormal aspects to this book. Jennie's dead father communicates to Jared trying to help him stop the man he was unable to stop when he was a cop.
I liked this book a little more than the first solely because everything was explained in this book - no plot holes or unexplained things. My only complaint was the very abrupt ending. It could have used an epilogue.
The McNeil brothers are back at it again, this time the story focuses on Jared McNeil and his connection to the heroine, Jenny McKenzie who has been literally terrorized by a madman for years.
Smart, fun, romantic, suspenseful (one scene scared me silly - it's very well written AND loops back to "In The Shadow of Greed.") These McNeil brothers books are home runs! And because there's many boys in this family, I'm hoping there are a couple more! (Noah, I need your story!) Can't recommend enough grabbing both this book and "In the Shadow of Greed."
I found the McNeil brothers of the Baltimore Blue to be a pleasing reflection of courage,devotion and justice.
I loved it so much I can't wait to read all of Nancy Weeks series of books.
