ARC received Thank you, Doubleday Books. This second book in the series about PI Alice Vega is an intriguing mystery that deals with immigration and sex trafficking Vega is called in by the SDPD and FBI to investigate the murders of two Latina girls with no IDs Once again, Vega calls her colleague and friend, Cap, to help with the case As the two of them begin to unravel the tightly woven net of drug cartels and sex traffickers, they discover that it also includes friends in high places Just when it seems that the case is coming to a close, there is another layer of violence and corruption that places Vega and Cap s lives in danger than once While the story can seem to move too slowly and include some unnecessary dialogue, the end makes it all worthwhile With a bit of a cliffhanger ending, this book will keep the reader waiting for the next installment. I was a little nervous to read this because I didn t realize it was part of a series but this author did a great job with the writing where you don t have to read the first one I m definitely going to be if it s just as good as this one This book is why I love thrillers So suspenseful and exciting Great book.Thank you Netgalley, the author and publisher for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.
