This is the second installment of Brenda Joyce Deadly series. I have not read the first one and I still liked this one enough to order no three. Francesca -our heroine- wants to be a "Crime-solver Extraordininarie" in New York 1902, an ambition that is not well received by her high society family.
The action is fastpace enough to keep the pages turning, the love story better than in other books by this author. This series seems to be inspired by J.D Robbs "In Death" series. It does not promise to be as good - but certainly good enough. I liked it - and the series form certainly gives the author more opportunity to let the love story unfold at it's own pace.
