As I indicated this is a dark piece of fiction. Lane is not your typical teenager; at least I hope not. She researches serial killers and stalks the streets at night wearing a mask avenging the wronged; dispatching her own brand of justice. Added to the complications is that both her mother and her stepfather are FBI agents. She's headed for the University of Virginia and works part time at a veterinary clinic. Her attraction to the doctor at the clinic is complicated by the age difference; he's 25 she's 17. "Fortunately" for her the doctor's brother is a junior transfer student. That situation is made more complex when she meets him initially when her younger sister Daisy brings him home. Daisy who is the "blowjob queen" of their high school has some issues of her own. Going back and looking into her family tree doesn't provide Lane with a lot of comfort either.
A good piece of realism is added to the story when Lane isn't an automatic member of Seal Team 6. She makes mistakes in her role as vigilante, doesn't prepare as well as she should; forgets certain important factors, and hesitates when she should act; in other words, just like a real teenager.
Personally I enjoyed Lane's dark side and liked a protagonist who acts as we all want to at times. I gave 5 stars to this work; though it was more like 4.5 or 4.6. regardless it's a good listen; short, (about five and a half hours) to the point and without any glaring weaknesses.

This book should be in the teen age section. Not very believable. Did not find the lead character engaging or likable. Did not believe the ending. Just all around, not a very good book.
