4.5 starsI can't wait to read the next in this series, that is how much I liked it. The characters hooked me from the first few pages and there is a richness of characters here that just come alive on the pages. And a real life nincompoop lol. The mystery kept me reading and its not completely resolved at the end. I found it to be dense, for lack of better word. In a good way. It never really slows down much. Just keeps going and I kept turning the pages. H/h are just great complete and complex characters. Likable and logical. No doormat, no TSTL in sight. Well, there is the nincompoop :)Its witty, dark, wicked and sensual.
