I really liked this book. It is more like a crime drama type of book than anything else, but a huge splash of romance thrown in there. The story was written really well, with the main characters being very awesome. Especially the heroine, she's intense, and a badass. What more could you ask for? I really liked her a lot, and I loved her and Damon together as well. They made a perfect team to solve this case. Now the ending wasn't exactly a cliffhanger, but it did sort of leave us guessing as what the heck is going to happen now. But it left me feeling very excited about the next book. So now I can not wait for it!
