Synopsis:

A WEALTHY THEATRE PRODUCER IS FOUND DEAD.

A RARE, CORROSIVE POISON HAS BURNED THROUGH HIS STOMACH.

NO ONE KNOWS WHY.

Enter DI Jack Ravenshaw. A young, talented officer with a secret: he belongs to England's most famous dynasty of actors. When Scotland Yard uncovers his hidden past, his acting experience, and his formidable connections, he becomes the perfect choice to investigate the producer's killing. Against his wishes, he must return to London's West End.

Cast back into one of the most vibrant - and violent - areas of the country, Ravenshaw is quickly surrounded by sexy performers, shadowy assistants, and powerful investors. Finding the truth seems almost impossible. Devious suspects lie at every turn. Corrupt officers sabotage his inquiry. Even his mind tricks him with dreams and hallucinations about his past. Yet with the help of his mysterious partner, DS Emily Hart, Ravenshaw must put all his skills into action against an ingenious, twisted, and ruthless killer...

But can he solve the case before another person is murdered?

My Thoughts:


* I received a complimentary copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

This book's protagonist is a detective who has a different way of investigating murder. He's flawed and utterly interesting. The book's plot flows well and held my interest. And the chemistry between the characters was good. It was filled with witty dialogue. I look forward to Book 2.
