is a ruthless killer, she targets businessmen and slowly takes them
apart. Detective Mann has his own issues to deal with, his legacy of
being the son of a Triad leader and the millions it brings with it. His
team members don't know if they can trust him and now a young girl has
been dismembered as part of a new wild gang initiation and Mann is on
the case. If all that wasn't bad enough both the Triad leader and his
daughter have their eye on Mann and more importantly his money and ties
in their community. Can they persuade him to turn his back on the law
and embrace his criminal ties?
What a fantastic read! From the
first chapter, which by the way is one of the most graphic and brutal
descriptions I have read in a long time. It really isn't for the light
hearted and you will know if it is for you within two pages and you are
flung in at the deep end.
The story pace is good, it starts fast
and brutal and then slows just a bit but enough to keep you intrigued
and turning the pages. There are lots of twists and turns, surprises
and even a few O.M.G moments. I enjoyed it so much I went looking for
more and found I have read the first book but not two and three so have
now bought them and would have read them in sequence had I realized.
Definitely not for those with weak stomachs or faint hearts, thrilling
and packed full of action so 5/5 for me.
