The case, Jane's personal demons, Hank, and odd encounters with Jordan Copeland force Jane to deal with her past, and future.
In my opinion, the story is captivating and the suspense kept me reading very late into the night, several nights in a row. The characters were very interesting and I enjoyed the fact that the surprises kept rolling in. However, I felt that the story was overpowered by an overabundance of profanity and graphic descriptions. I realize that in a crime scene type novel that descriptions are important but, in my opinion, it went overboard at times. I was especially bothered by the complete overuse of profanity. I can look past a few words in the book but not when it is all over the place, especially when it is unnecessary. The profanity and graphic descriptions ruined the book for me. If they had been toned down, I would have probably really enjoyed the book. Overall, I can only give the book 3 stars.
