Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Damaged Ash and chipper Hazel are a compelling-enough duo to keep readers turning pages. Ash’s talking dog, Patience, will delight animal lovers, and a subplot involving a homeless teen provides a heartwarming contrast to Ash’s conniving wife.” Publishers Weekly
“After a cliff-hanger ending in Perfect Sins, Bannister’s third series outing finds police officer Hazel Best and her friend Gabriel Ash in a state of disbelief. Ash’s kidnapped wife, Cathy, has made contact; the Somali pirates holding her are willing to make a deal for her return, but it is not one that either Ash or Hazel can live with. Desperate to get his family back, Ash comes up with a plan he shares with no one, to Hazel’s dismay. When ­Hazel sees the results of Ash’s actions, she is shocked into making big decisions of her own that will change both their lives forever.” Library Journal
