You have to have your wits about you when you read this novel. Contrary to what the rather gothic-toned cover would have you believe – this is a modern, action-packed thriller where the ‘good guys’ and the ‘bad guys’ are clearly defined.

The novel’s protagonist is thirty-seven year old Julia Gooden, a seasoned crime reporter in the crime-ridden city of Detroit, Michigan. The mother of two young boys, she is separated from her attorney husband, David Tanner, though at the beginning of this novel they are attempting a reconciliation. She is beautiful and very fit due to her passion for running. It is usual for Julia to run ten miles in the morning before leaving for work.

Nick Rossi is a kingpin in Detroit organized crime and now heads a vast and powerful illegal empire. He deals a lot of his ‘business’ at the lush Detroit MGM Grand Hotel. The local police and even the FBI have had him in their sights for years. Julia’s husband David is now in the process of prosecuting Rossi in a huge trial which has the power to make or break his career and his aspiration to be a District Attorney.

Navarro is a Detroit cop. Long ago he and Julia had a relationship and as far as Navarro is concerned she is the ‘one that got away‘. Though he cares for Julia still, he will not divulge the name of the surprise witness against Rossi. Knowing who this witness is could be a tremendous coup for her journalistic career.

Knowing that David and Navarro are unwilling to help her get her story, she uses her myriad other contacts that she has built up over her years in Detroit, however she is scooped by a rival journalist.

I did enjoy the first book in the series, and I'm glad I stuck with it because this one is even better. At this rate, the next will be a 5 star! Action packed and intense. A couple of things I wished would have happened in the first book happened in this one, I'm happy with it. Julia is again a ridiculously brave risk-taker, throwing herself in precarious situations over and over. I would have liked a little more about her kids and home life, but the first book did have more of that. A very likeable character and absorbing story.

Julia is still trying to repair her fractured relationship with her assistant district attorney husband. She's determined to work things out if it ends up being what's best for their two young children. Things between them are going very well. They're soon thrown together in their professional lives as well as she covers a major trial that David is the prosecutor for. He firmly resists her attempts to get inside info on the major player on trial, but he's not her only source... the story is coming along when tragedy strikes. A bomb at the court house explodes, killing several adults and children. By chance, Julia wasn't there, but her husband David was. He lays in the hospital unconscious while Julia works on figuring out who is responsible and how it may relate to the initial case. This is the beginning of a wild and dangerous ride... for Julia, and others close to her. She thinks career criminal Rossi is behind it, and won't stop until she helps bring whoever is responsible to justice.

I received an ARC of this novel from Net Galley and Kensington Books, thank you! My review is honest and unbiased

Review I received a free copy of the book via Netgalley.

I wasn't sweet on this at the beginning; the tense and the writing being very odd for me and not something I am accustomed to. However, the more I read, the more I invested in the story.

Julia Gooden is covering the trial of Nick Rossi, a gang lord who is accused of many crimes, which her husband is prosecuting. On the first day of the trial there is a bomb that kills the key witness and severely injures her husband. Gooden then tries to find evidence that Rossi is behind the attack so he can finally be put behind bars.

I devoured this book and I found it a very easy read in the end. It is not as gritty as many other crime novels, but did have many twists and turns that kept me engaged.

There were a few reasons why this did not score a 5 for me: blatant sexual harassment that is ignored and accepted as the norm (not cool), many unbelievable elements of the story (e.g. the rapper remembering exact distances, co-ordinates etc of a map he saw once ages ago), and the ending which made no sense considering Isabella's confession.

I will read the next in the series (if there is one) as I enjoyed the characters.

An enjoyable fast paced thriller featuring a new feisty heroine: Julia Gooden is a reporter on a Detroit newspaper and she is covering the trial of Nick Rossi, a local gangster. Howver there is a slight problem as her estranged husband David is the prosecutor which leads to some conflict of interest as Julia tries to get inside information.
Julia has two young children and is helped at home by Helen her Polish housekeeper. David is trying to encourage her to have him back but Julia is still unsure after he walked out on her.
She is friends with two cops, Navarro and Russell who are investigating Rossi and give Julia insights into the case. It transpires that Navarro and Julia have had a relationship in the past and there is still a lot of romantic tension between them as the story moves along.
This is a fast moving plot with lots of action. Things get even more tense when David is injured in a courthouse bomb and Julia is desparate to investigate. However nobody in the book is as they seem- duplicity is the word and the title resonates as the novel progresses.
The characters are well drawn and likeable. Julia is a great heroine and not a shrinking violet. She likes to be where the action is!
I am a big fan of Sue Grafton's Kinsey Milhone series and Julia Gooden reminded me of her a lot.
The book was compelling with a lot happening so I read it vey quickly over the course of a couple of days. In fact I realised after a few chapters it was the second book in a series and I am now keen to read the first novel so I can fill in the blanks on Julia's background.
