The way DV Berkom merged past information about the main character Kate Jones into the current plot was a perfect combination of past an present. She made it so easy to remember all I needed to about the characters from previous books. The new plot, the adventure, the drama is always so unique. DV describes scenes so well you believe you were there.
I was intrigued from the beginning and my interest held until the end. As always, when reading a book by DV Berkom, the end leaves you wanting more and looking forward to the next book and the next stage of Kate's life.

Kate's character has evolved in each Kate Jones book, but I think this one is a turning point in her life.
As an avid Kate Jones reader, I would highly recommend this fascinating book to all who enjoy great stories with a strong female character and a bit of danger along the way !
Kate has spent years running for her life after getting involved with the wrong man. Now she is settling down with she PI partner and trying to have a normal life....
Then her sister ends up in a coma from an apparent overdose and on the same night a young man lost his life to the same drug. The only problem, neither were drug addicts...
The parents of the young man ask them to investigate his death.
Soon, Kate's past seems to be all to close. Can she do her job and not get in trouble or go for revenge? Can she hang on to the man she loves?
This book will keep you on the edge of your seat - you won't be able to put it down!
Kate Jones is such a character. Her experiences with a druglord Salazar and another drug kingpin seemed somehow to have warped her character to one of overprotectivness, fashioning her into an impatient, headstrong young woman, overconfident at times, yet so vulnerable when it comes to the people she loves.
It is therefore quite ironic that drugs is once again the trigger to push her somewhat of the rails in a vigilante mode to find those responsible for her sister's drug overdose.
And the guilty never saw her coming!
I am fascinated by the strong characterizations this author seems to provide at the drop of the hat. The strong action driven suspense ensures riveting reading and always ensures the thriller junkies get full value for money.
I sincerely hope the incidental character of Eve is somebody we will encounter again in a later issue in this series.
Kate's younger sister Lisa suffers from migraines. To control the pain, she buys some drugs at a party that are tainted, causing Lisa to end up in a coma. When other people start dying from the same drug, Kate and her new boyfriend Sam start investigating the source of the drug. Kate's past comes back to haunt her as she digs deeper into the case.
Besides entering the series in the middle, I was very impressed with Berkom's writing. Her characters, especially Kate, are very well crafted, and each had their own personality that shows quite well on the page. The action is crisp and well paced, and there are very few slow moments in the novel. Berkom has created a heroine, flaws and all, that the reader can easily root for. I'm very interested in digging into this series again, this time from the beginning.

Kate is going it alone, well sort of, when she makes a deal with the devil (aka Angie-yep the assassin that has tried to kill her twice before) although I couldn't help but wonder why Kate thought that would be a good idea, knowing Angie as she does, but I guess when a family members life is on the line anything goes. With Angie around you just know that things aren't going to go quite the way Kate plans them to go and add in some computer hackers, corporate fat cats, drug dealers and revenge to the mix Kate finds herself on another runaway train to hell.
Kate starts to investigate the source of the pills.
Loads of action and plot twists.
This was a good one. A nice round set of characters. Each with their own special good points and bad points. The plot was interesting and quirky. Even though it was a sequel from another story by the same author we were able to follow this without having read the original story.
That is quite a skill.
We got to like, respect, and sometimes hate the characters. The engagement was what captured me. While not great literature and not of the very highest order of thriller/mystery writing, this is a very good novel.
