to the endI the realistic setting and elements of the story especially the part with the gangs Being from Birmingham where the book takes place I know how scary the city can be at night When she talks about how the community shuts down when the sun goes down I can relate I Worked In One Those Parts Of Town And It worked in one those parts of town and it exactly what happensAs I read I continued to be intrigued with Jess She had a lot of dimensions She s tough as nails when she works nothing or no one intimidates her Her vulnerable side showsIt To The EndI
When It Comes To Danit comes to Dan feels things that she doesn t want or expect to feel and like the rest of s she has a hard time dealing with it Although part of her doesn t care what anyone thinks another part wants to fit in with the rest of the people in her departmentThe books in the Faces of Evil series are not your typical Debra Webb books Things finally heated Tavern Wench up at the end of this one and let me just say the scene was outstanding This book started off slower than the other two in the series and I found myself skimming through the first couple of chapters However once the action started it was fast paced all the way to the end and I couldn t put this book down There were some things I was able to figure out before they were revealed in the book but it s not too predictable OK I m getting kind of bored with the same old same old relationship drama between former FBI profiler Jess Harris and Birmingham Police Chief Dan Burnett Neither wants to admit how strong their feelings are to the other and things get a bit touchy as they are both in touch with their exes I simply didn t care about any of thatThe action was also a bit muted There are two cases in this story One is the apparently accidental death of a ballet instructor This one gets a bit knottedp with Jess stepping the toes of the detective who is supposed to be running the investigation The other case is a missing teenage boy who apparently disappeared in order to protect his so called girlfriend from her gang member brother Of course neither case turns out to be straightforward and appearances are deceptive No serial killers this time and not much excitement either I might go one in this series but if it doesn t pick p I m outta here Couldn t wait to get through this one The twists turns and everything else that you don t see coming One thing for certain Chief Harris is a force to be reckon with It shows you how being a woman in this.
