Summary: It is the year 2058 and though the crime rate has gone down its still there. And its lieutenant Eve Dallas job to stop the criminals and has been for 10 years. However with the murders of professional prostitutes one being the granddaughter of a governor. So now Eve has to find out to track down a killer using old time guns to kill.
My thoughts: I’ve tired to read this book however could never get into it so I decide to use audible. So glad I did. The narrator Susan Ericken has a really fun way of keeping me interested. I feel like I enjoyed the characters more because I listen to it and got there voices in my head. Which I really liked.I first thought this was like Stephaine Plum series by Janet Evanovich however it’s not.
One thing I love about this series is the fact there is no love triangle. Eve doesn’t really do relationships thanks to a crappy past. However she feels a pull to billionaire Roake, and it just grows from there. Something I didn’t like about there relationship is the fact that it was fast. I thought there would be a little more of a tug and war between them and there wasn’t. I don’t overly mind though because I still loved there realtionship and will probably always have a special place for them.
The mystery itself was good I didn’t know who it was though I always try to figure it out myself. I didn’t figure out myself. However I still really enjoyed this and glad that I finally started this story. Though it was a mystery about death it did have it’s humorous parts which I probably wouldn’t have caught if I didn’t listen to it.
I will be continuing on this HUGE series however think I can get through it pretty fast. Or as fast as I can get through 40 books. Will see.
