Format: Mass Market Paperback
A new position at the UDA ensures Sophie will have her hands full yet again. If she can keep it that is. The vampires are infiltrating every position at the UDA and Sophie fears her new job might not be hers for long. Especially if she keeps defying orders not to investigate the disappearances and attacks of her clients.

Along with her guardian Will, Sophie sets out to figure out who or what is attacking everyone around her and why vampires seem to be the only ones unaffected.

Sophie Lawson is back in this third installment of the Underworld Detection Agency series and she's got a new job as the head of the fallen angels division. As being the only person at the UDA who has dealt with not one but two fallen angels, the head of the UDA, Dixon has rethought his decision to fire her and has instead given her a promotion of sorts. Except right from the beginning Sophie can tell something is up. The vampires are taking over the UDA slowly but noticeably. Including Vlad who has now become Sophie's boss. Her favorite love-to-hate client Mrs Henderson had disappeared leaving her house in disarray and dragon blood all over the walls. A drowned Centaur is also found at the bottom of one of the piers. Dixon doesn't seem too enthused to go looking for the killer and refuses to connect the two together.

When a banshee client comes in claiming to have been attacked Sophie knows she can sit idly by no longer. She's on her own this time because Alex has left town and won't answer her calls. She becomes dependent upon her guardian, Will to be by her side. Poor Will, I feel kinda bad for him. Sophie is still hung up on Alex and Will is hung up on her. He is dependable though and takes his role of guardian seriously and tries his best to keep her safe.

In San Francisco Underworld Detection Agency's only human Sophie Lawson starts to report to her superior that three of her clients failed to make their appointment with her, but stops when she learns her new boss is Vlad LeShay as he is the latest vampire promoted to top management by Dixon Andrade. She decides to check up on Mrs. Henderson the demon and two teenage children, but finds blood and destruction at their home. Nauseous she calls fallen angel Alex Grace who is on his way to Buffalo

No one at UDA seems interested in the Henderson case or the fact that more demons have disappeared as Sophie fears paranormal ethnic cleaning. However, when someone tries to kill Sophie, her stiff necked guardian Will, peers and management finally take notice.

Jayne's third adventure as the only human at UDA (see Under Attack and Under Wraps) is a fun tale though the non-reaction by the heroine's peers seem unlikely and over the top of the Twin Peaks. The heroine is her usual mix of angst and West Coast shtick as she investigates what is going on amongst the supernatural beings. Fans will enjoy her escapades as she becomes the target of sinister adversaries.

Okay so her on and off again boyfriend Alex is being a jerk, again, and has disappeared leaving her high and dry. But hey, her guardian Will is there to help, now if only he didn't sound just like Alex in speech and mannerisms. Seriously? It's like they're the same guy but Will has an accent. The romance between them is awkward, painful at times to read and really should just be ditched. The story itself was good as was the humor, but I was really hoping for more developement on Sophie. After the daddy bombshell etc of book 2, we get nothing to really sink our teeth in not to mention, she is just not growing as a character. You'd think someone with her life constantly in danger would get some lessons on protecting herself so she's not constantly a victim. But, that said, I will keep an eye open for the fourth book because the werewolf is apparently coming back.

Sophie not only got her job back at the Underworld Detection Agency, but a promotion to head of the fallen angel division. So life is looking up, at least until her clients start disappearing that is. Sophie instantly suspects that there is some nefarious plot going on despite everyone else having doubts. Regardless, she is determined to get to the bottom of things, and lucky for her she has an oh so yummy guardian to help protect her while she sticks her nose into trouble. Things start heating up between the two much to Alex's dismay, but his absentee behavior has just about met Sophie's breaking point. Relationship woes aside, Sophie may have bitten off more than she can chew in her investigation as a powerful force seems determined to annihilate anything and everything demonic, and Sophie may have very well placed herself right in the cross hairs.

A love triangle forms in Under Suspicion, and I'm not really happy about it. It isn't that I have a problem with love triangles, in fact ones where either choice is equally appealing can make for a great read. However, in this case, the two of the men cannot be described as anything near equal in terms of deserving Sophie. Granted I did get my wish that some sparks would start between Will and Sophie, but I had intended for Alex to be then completely pushed out of the picture. Unfortunately, that just didn't happen and it really frustrated me. I just don't understand what Sophie sees in Alex. All he does is string her along, and it just isn't right. On the other hand, Will has been nothing but supportive of her and while he does chuckle at her antics, he never once patronized her unlike Alex does.
