Detective Levi Abrams and PI Dominic Russo are reunited and more committed to each other than ever, but they can’t truly move forward with their lives until the serial killer who’s been tormenting them is behind bars. When a secret burial site is discovered in the desert with the remains of the Seven of Spades’s earliest victims, that goal finally seems within reach.
But just as the net is tightening, the Neo-Nazi militia Utopia launches their master plan with a devastating act of terror that changes the landscape of Las Vegas forever. As Levi and Dominic scramble to prevent the city’s destruction, they’re opposed by treacherous forces that propel them toward catastrophe. In the end, Levi’s fate may rest in the hands of the very killer he’s been hunting.
The race to save Sin City is on, and these players are going for broke. No matter how hopeless things seem, as long as they’re together and they’ve got a chip to play and a chair to sit in, they’re still in the game.
I had guessed SOS’s identity in the first book and I was right. Honestly, I’m surprised that most people didn’t suspect the killer sooner. Still, the moment of the revelation was magnificent, especially as far as the narrative structure is concerned. Absolutely brilliant.
The romance was very satisfying for me, same goes for the HEA. I still think that Levi is probably the sexiest MC ever.
My interest dimmed a little bit in the last because it was too action packed for my tastes, which is the reason I’m rounding down.
Brilliant series, amazing writing, recommended for all MM readers.
