I received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review.
This was an okay read with me, there was a lot of mystery involved on trying to figure out who dun it.
Bragg seems to like his share of women and while on a trip with his girlfriend to a jazz festival he ends up running into an old female friend. Now Jo comes off very sexual and flirty no matter if someone is married or dating she wants it known she is interested. The day after meeting with Jo he learns that she is a suspect in her husbands murder. Now we all know this can't be good sexy woman in jail for the supposed murder of her husband, this just screams something is fishy.
Bragg ends up signing up to find out what is going on, what he uncovers deals with secrets no one wants out and blackmail that just started as an idea becomes real.
Bragg has a lot on his plate with trying to keep his beloved Allison safe and trying to find out who is behind all the deaths that seem to be happening.
When you find out why blackmail and murder is involved it is like seriously?
This is part six in the series but it makes a great stand alone which is great.
There is plenty of action within the story that there really isn't too many dull moments for me that is a plus.
