Soon, Seattle is reeling from dozens more deaths, all with the same chemical markers. At first, police assume that the victims are closet junkies who got a hold of a bad combination, but after someone close to her becomes a victim, Kate believes something far more sinister is going on.The deeper Kate digs, the more she uncovers about the deadly drug’s origins, forcing her to choose between doing what’s right… and getting revenge
I read ‘Bad Spirits’ (book #1 in this series) some time ago and meant to
follow it up but didn’t. I just may have read the last book in the series and
missed all the ones in between… but still, DV Berkom hasn’t disappointed.
And I could follow enough of the
series’ storyline for this book to stand alone.
Kate thinks she has finally left her nemesis behind and is free of being
hunted, but by deciding to interfere in a drug case, she finds more people who
want her dead. The story about the drugs gets complicated as more unsuspecting
people die from tainted pain killers.
A good suspense and thriller story, which doesn’t get too technical and
gives some handy hints for women about self-defence.
