Blurb: A murdered prostitute. An obvious suspect. Clear evidence. For once, Jericho Crewe has a straightforward crime to investigate, and Wade Granger isn’t involved.

It all seems so simple, but Jericho’s instincts won’t let him rest. As he investigates, he finds troubling suggestions that the murder is a part of something larger and more sinister. But working within the boundaries of the law may keep him from finding the truth. If Jericho doesn’t break the rules, an innocent man may rot in jail while a killer remains free to strike again.

Inevitably, it all comes back to Wade. Because who else knows as much about breaking rules? And who else knows Jericho the way Wade does—not wisely, but far, far too well?



We are quickly coming to the finish line in this series, and I think I liked this book the best so far. I loved that Jericho is getting his attitude back and has started to stand up for himself more. I loved that he and Wade are inching closer together and very, very soon I will get my happy-ever-after for these two. It has been a long time coming, the writing is superb, I’m intrigued, and so I keep coming back for more. Seriously, I need to know how this series ends.

Each book follows the progression of Jericho and Wade, but also a totally new story line that these two have to maneuver. In this installment, a mentally disabled man is accused of murder, but Jericho is not convinced he did it…and Wade, of course, just drops enough breadcrumbs to confuse Jericho into not knowing if he is getting a clue into the real murderer or if he is intentionally be thrown off track. Honestly, I am unsure how Jericho made it this far with Wade. An ethical lawman and his obsession with the apparent lawlessness of Wade. No wonder I keep coming back. Love isn’t easy, but these two take the difficulty to the extreme.

Overall Impression: I liked it

*I received a copy of this book from the publisher in return for a fair and honest review.*
