Format: Mass Market Paperback
I really liked `Senseless' by Mary Burton, which focused on Eva Rayburn and the murders taking place around her after she is released from prison (having served a sentence for murder). In that story we heard a little about Eva's sister Angie Carlson, the lawyer.

Angie now gets her own book with its own murder, romance and general mayhem. And she also gets to spend more time with Detective Malcolm Kier, partner of Deacon Garrison (Eva's significant other), whom she initially strongly disliked. And the feeling was mutual.

A year previously Angie had been representing Dr James Dixon in a murder trial and he was acquitted after her cross-examining of a key witness. When that witness comes to Angie for help with a custody case, little does Angie realise that she's starting down a road where there are murders and she is a link between them. As Angie helps Kier to get to the bottom of the crimes, her view of him changes. They uncover secrets going back many decades, but can they find the perpetrator before Angie becomes his next victim?

Well, any reader of this kind of book can probably answer that last question without reading it, but the book still has suspense and interest. I wonder if there may be a book in the future about Angie's lawyer colleague Charlotte who gets several mentions.

This book also continued the story of the relationship between Eva and Garrison. And yes, she calls him that, despite that being his surname - as Angie calls Malcolm `Kier'. Seems a bit weird to me as a Brit, no way would I refer to a friend by their surname, but maybe that's a transatlantic cultural thing.

The book ended with an easy-to-predict event in Angie's personal life which seemed rather too far-fetched to me, but overall I really enjoyed this story and felt that the author did a good job in concealing the identity of the murderer until the end.

Great story easy reading but absolutely unable to put it once I started it. Fantastic characters, unbelievable twists covering many years and family ties. Unmissable read.

Very disappointing after reading a couple of her books I've noticed the formula, you have a tough but wounded heroine, she falls in love with the cop/ranger, she's in mortal danger, he saves her, the end. Oh don't forget to fill the rest of the book with embarrassingly sexist cliches.

As a reader of Karen Rose, I was a bit sceptical when starting to read this series of books, but I have to say they are very good, well written, and good characters and story lines, looking forward to reading them all. Many Thanks. Packaging and delivery were excellent as usual.

A great read with strong character's and a really good twist in the tale at the end.I would recommend it to anyone who likes a spine chilling thriller. Mary Burton is fast becoming one of my favourite writers.

Have read a few of Mary Burton's books and this was a good one. The storyline kept you intrigued throughout. There were twists and turns that kept you wanting more.
