This was a mind-blowing instalment of what has become one of the best series I'd read. It was fantastic. Absolutely brilliant.

The crime scene in Las Vegas is showing to be relentless to detective Levi Abraham and PI Dominic Russo who are, again, forced to work together while trying to solve the increasing kidnappings that are stealing some of the spotlight from the Seven of Spades. While trying to cope with their break up, they still have to deal with addiction and anger management. But the Seven of Spades isn't done yet with the killing spree, and this time, the murders have a very personal connection to Levi.

This was as outstanding as the previous instalments. It was impossible to put it down. Captivating, thrilling, emotional and romantic. It was everything I could have waited for. The plot was amazing. I'm really in love with the way the author writes mystery and with her characters. It was fast faced and with some action, maybe less than the other books in the series but enough to keep me entertained.

I loved the way Dominic and Levi's relationship faced a break up but still there was so much love in them. They wouldn't hesitate to give their own lives to protect the other. It was so easy to see how in love they were and even if this wasn't a particularly romantic instalment, there was so full of love. It is so beautiful to see such complex characters. There's nothing easy about the situation they were facing and the way they react felt so realistic. They make mistakes, they hurt each other, they simply aren't perfect and that just makes the book so much more interesting. Waiting for the next reaction of either Levi or Dominic was thrilling, as unpredictable as it was the next step of the Seven of Spades.

Overall, it was just perfect. I'm truly in love with the series I couldn't recommend it enough to any reader who enjoys mystery.
