Well, Alan McDermott takes off at full speed in this new series so please fasten your seat belts because it is one hell of a ride!

Wow, I bounced between the storylines at the beginning of this book wanting each one to continue, hating leaving the characters behind to join a new storyline then hating leaving that one which I was equally involved in. Some became entwined early on but the reasons why things were happening was a mystery.

I love the anger that I could feel from some of the characters and the seeing and not believing by others before everything is too late for them. I liked getting to know DI John Latimer a determined man that feels what he sees. He is loyal to his friends and goes with his gut instinct. The connection already feels like it is there and I am already wanting to know more about him has his character develops in the future.

Ryan is a real focused character that has to control his emotions or risk losing his life in situations where his choices could mean life or death not just for him. Oh my, stomach-churning moments that still make me shudder. This author knows how to through a punch that counts and this story hits hard for some characters.

All the pieces click into place of the who is who, the whys, the when and the what-ifs. It has all been there tucked away. A brilliant beginning to what promises so much more as a series.
