Although there are murders in this book, the focus is more on who is trying to bring down R&B Investigations. There are plenty of twists to follow and Isabella, Bogie's young daughter, takes on a starring role in everyone's lives. She reminds me a lot of my own daughter (though my daughter has never stabbed someone with a Bokken sword and doesn't have an IQ of over 200, but there are many other similarities!). There's also a large focus on the family life of the extended McGruder family, and there's plenty to investigate there too.
I enjoyed book one, but I enjoyed book two more. I was already familiar with many of the characters, which made the story easier to follow. Pop, who featured in the first book, plays a much bigger role this time, and he is a lovely, cuddly character with a wise head on his shoulders. It's easy to see how he's managed to hold Bogie together and guide him throughout the years.
I look forward to finding out what the future holds for the extended McGruder family and R&B Investigations.
This is not for the feint of heart. There is some violence and sex, but I guess you already realized that from what I've already said. However, some people may have some problems with how Isabella, now 4 years old, is handled in this book. She is very precocious but she also gets in some situations that people will not care for. I have to admit that I didn't really care for how she was portrayed and did in some situations in this book. Maybe if she was a little bit older I wouldn't have cared as much. It just wasn't as believable at times, especially when I think of other 4 year olds.
Even with my reservations above, I really liked the book. I was drawn in from the very beginning, and could not put the book down. It is kind of like being charmed by a snake charmer. It is mesmerizing and you just can't stop looking even though you know it can be dangerous.
If you are worried about not having read the first book, don't. Yes, this is the second book in this series, but it can be read as a stand alone book. Chris Birdy does a good job of explaining anything that is referenced from the previous book.
I give this book 4 1/2 stars, only because I did have some problems with Isabella.Read more ›
The truly remarkable thing about the author script is the descriptive style of writing she uses that brings the characters to life and you can actually envisage them in your mind. Along side the descriptive notations is the traits and characteristics that are inside of everyone and with this humanization it makes for a enthralling read.
As one of Bogies employers is shot he is drawn to find out why and by whom. As the investigation takes him away from home his real battle begins in keeping his family together and close on his tail is someone who wants him dead.
In parts there is scenes of a sexual nature which are essential to the story line of one of the characters asking the question to what means would you go to survive.
Bogie's portrayal of his loyalty to his family and friends is the real story line and if you stand by your convictions and stay true to your ethos, those around you will come round to your way of thinking.and will make the bond stronger.
Another great page turner of a story which is full of twists and turns and suspense right to the end. It will make you think about your relationships with your close friends and family. Once you pick this book you you will not want to put it down, you will be disappointed when you finish it because it will leave you wanting more.
