Happy Thursday book friends! Finished up all my Christmas shopping yesterday, now I just need to get those gifts wrapped!🎁
This is my final blog tour of 2018! Thank you so much Emma for the invitation! Looking forward to many more in 2019!💚❄️
Danny Lancaster has been missing since the fishing boat exploded. Police are closing their inquiry but Wanda Lovejoy continues her campaign to find the truth. An evil man kept alive by machines nurses a corrosive hate. As drugs and disease pull his dying mind apart he throws his crime empire into a scorched earth quest to find one man. If Danny Lancaster isn’t dead he soon will be.
A complicated tale of intrigue and suspense!
I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I picked this book up, but I have to admit I was quite surprised! This was a compelling story that kept me up late into the night flipping those pages! This is the fifth book in the series.. however it can absolutely be read as a standalone, but as in all series you are missing out on some character development… also at the beginning of this book Danny Lancaster the main character of the series is missing and presumed dead…
This book was chock-full of a lot of characters that kept you on your toes… so many characters, but all pretty well developed, it did add to the complexity but that just requires a little more focus…. I have to admit though Wanda Lovejoy (love that last name) was my favorite, loved her! The story really had a bit of everything international intrigue, mobsters, suspense, and of course a little kidnapping!
This book made me realize that I cannot judge a book by its title! No offense, but that title just did not draw me in as much as others have … but that’s a me thing!
