A tomcat, a psychopath, and a psychic walk into the desert to rescue the men they love…. Can everybody make it out with their skin intact?
PI Jackson Rivers and Defense Attorney Ellery Cramer have barely recovered from last November, when stopping a serial killer nearly destroyed Jackson in both body and spirit. But their previous investigation poked a new danger with a stick, forcing Jackson and Ellery to leave town, so they can meet the snake in its den.
Jackson Rivers grew up with the mean streets as a classroom, and he learned a long time ago not to give a damn about his own life. But he gets a whole new education when the enemy takes Ellery. The man who pulled his shattered pieces from darkness and stitched them back together again is in trouble, and Jackson’s only chance to save him rests in the hands of fragile allies he barely knows.
It’s going to take a little bit of luck to get these Few Good Fish out alive!
This is book #3 in the series and you really do need to read the previous two stories first to gain an insight into the characters and the ongoing story with the ‘baddies’.
Jackson and Ellery have been given a few months’ respite and are only just recovering from the trauma they suffered at the end of the previous book before they face more danger together. The story builds to some exciting and nerve-wracking action chapters, but much of the story is about family, Jackson and Ellery’s deepening relationship, and also personal healing for Jackson. There’s plenty of conversation and shedding of burdens. Amy Lane writes wonderfully troubled characters and situations, but she does include a generous sprinkling of banter to add some humour to those bleak situations.
I liked how she included Ace and Sonny—characters from another of her stories (Racing for the Sun).
Once again Greg Tremblay’s narration is superb. Great character voices, spot on emotions, and perfect pacing. I could picture each scene as it unfolded and could feel the fear and tension the characters experienced. Highly recommended.
