Agent Jess Harris is back in another thrilling installment of Debra Webb's Faces of Evil series.
Jess is ready to start the next chapter in her life as the new deputy chief of Birmingham's major crimes division. But with her first love, Chief of Police Dan Burnett, acting as her new boss, it looks like Jess won't be able to put the past behind her that easily.
Jess has decided to focus all of her attention on work when a celebrated ballet instructor is found dead by one of her students. Though Jess's instincts tell her otherwise, the death is ruled an accident, and the case is assigned to another division. Still, Jess can't shake the feeling that there's more to the story, and her investigation leads her into the worlds of Birmingham's gang culture and its powerful elite.
Now Jess's investigation has dug a little too deep, and there's a target painted on her own forehead. Will she be able to solve the crime before her own life is in jeopardy?
In Power, Jess and Dan are having problems with there new relationship when it comes to work, and when Dan's ex wife keeps coming around. Not only that, but Jess is kicked of a case the people in higher "power" are closing when her instincts are telling her that it's not that easy. And she also has another missing persons case that may or may not involve a gang to deal with.
Through all of these we get to see things with Dan,and Jess but also Lori. I really love Lori. And I also enjoyed how Jess handled everything even though she may not have any new friends to work with, she's still getting the job done. But I have to say I was a little disappointed with Dan when it came to his ex-wife. I really thought he would have made things more "clear" to both her, and Jess. But he seemed to not do that for some reason.
Anyways, I don't want to give to much away. I will say this one is probably my favorite book so far in this series. And I really can not wait for more, it just keeps getting better, and better. Now because of the end I'm even more worried about Jess. That girl is awesome, but also a major trouble magnet.
