This is the 4th book in the Jessie Cole Series - and I hope it is not the last. If you are looking to read this book, be warned!! You should really read the books in this series consecutively as there are so many characters intermingling, so many sides to each character also. This is a great series and so well written that it is worth the purchase price. The Author has not written a book that I have read written by her that I have not loved - and that is saying something. I am a bit picky, and especially with a series - they usually either taper off in intensity towards the end and the final is a barnstorming finish, or the first and last books are really only the best books to read. Not so with this series - or this Author - her books are all great - including twists, horrific scenes and dysfunctional people. Usually there is more than the one story being told also, and this can become a little confusing until you learn to concentrate and not just read the yarn. I would highly recommend this novel and this series.
