Publisher's Summary

The Sunday Times best-selling author of Closer than You Think returns with a breathtaking new novel in the Cincinnati series - would you cross the line between danger and desire, between justice and revenge? A desperate hunt to find a young girl's killer is about to turn deadly....
Former army ranger Marcus O'Bannion and homicide cop Scarlett Bishop have met only briefly, but when Scarlett receives a phone call in the middle of the night, she immediately recognises the smooth voice asking her to meet him in one of Cincinnati's roughest areas.
On arriving, Scarlett finds the body of a teenage Asian girl and Marcus injured. Marcus claims the young woman was working for an affluent local family, and the last time he saw her she was terrified and clearly in need of help.
Having agreed to meet her, they were both targeted for death. As they investigate, Scarlett and Marcus are pulled into the dangerous world of human trafficking, where they soon realise they are going to have to become as ruthless as those they are hunting. Because if they don't, how many other girls may end up alone in the dark?

Had to give up - too sickly sweet!

I loved the first book in this series and whilst this one had great subject matter I had to give up on it. The saccharine sweet perfection of the main protagonists were too much to stomach! Constant tales of saintly good deeds, lumps in the throat and hair sniffing just made me want to barf. It totally destroyed any interest I had in them as they were TOO perfect to be believable. I fear this one has crossed the line into Mills and Boon and it's put me off completely. I absolutely acknowledge this is likely to be my own cynicism rather than any fault with the Story or characters but there it is. Shame because the subject is heavyweight and interesting.

Don't hesitate....

Took me a chapter or two to get into, but then it was compulsive listening.
Characters you can buy into and a story line just involved enough to keep you guessing.
A book that leaves you feeling bereft when it ends is worth 5 stars.
Off to find the next.
