Because the explosive secret she possesses can never be revealed, lest a madman go free. I could be wrong, though, after reading the blurb. Only in the course of the story one finds out how this second book is linked to the first. Dennoch hat die Reihe für mich nun ein Ende, den 3. Townsend survived prosecuting the Cupid killer in Retribution. I did finish it, however and thought it wrapped up too neatly.
That includes not only the law, but how a women thinks. Not sure at this stage whether I'll bother to continue with it all or not. Hoffman does such a good job of filling in the back story. I'm not waiting-- starting it now. Mir gehen die Bücher von Jilliane Hoffman denke ich einfach zu sehr in die Ermittlungen rein. . Rechercheur Dominick Falconetti wordt op de zaak gezet maar is hij wel objectief genoeg.
I can already predict the third installment - C. I thought the climax of the work would have been better if there had been fewer characters and more character development. Details at the crime scenes point to a possible drug connection, and when a highly placed gang member disappears, Dominick finds corruption may be the unfortunate and unavoidable answer. The plot itself, and the pace of the book, more than made up for this flaw. Zelfs het einde vond ik alles behalve spannend. I know they are common in law enforcement, but she tends to overuse them in her books. Jilliane Hoffman vesteht es zu erschrecken und die Morde wirklich sehr krass dastehen zu lassen.
After all I do want see what happens next with C. So, having said that I would take a break between books instead of reading one right after another which I tend to do sometimes after discovering an author that I like and haven't read before. There were only a handful of people on the case who knew about this--and they are dying horrible, slow deaths at the hands of a crazed killer we cannot identify. Needless to say, the plot is once again filled with many twists and turns. This book has some fairly violent language and scenes.
Denn mir hat dieser Thriller damals eigentlich nicht so toll gefallen. Davor wird der Leser mit zahlreichen Abkürzungen amerikanischer Polizei- und Justitzeinrichtungen verwirrt. I enjoyed this book so much and have read all 3 books in this series. As the book progresses we see her go from wounded, to despair, and finally healing, ready finally to break away from her history. Manny ends up back in the saddle of an unpredictable relationship but the reader can't help but be amused, and the rest just kind of fade into the back ground. As a former attorney, she understands the legal machinations of a prosecutor and successfully incorporates them in her book to add credence to the story line.
Dominick Falconetti, an agent with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, is charged with heading a task force to in. She's haunted by the memory of having put the ends over the means. One of the things that I like about Hoffman is that she is able to write a little romance into her books without burdening her readers with heaving breasts and throbbing loins, or however that goes in the romance novels. I kept trying to remember names from the first book, small appearances of people to try and guess who this Black Jacket is. Let's start with the main character, C. She combines the gruesome precision of Patricia Cornwell, the courtroom savvy of Linda Fairstein and the Miami setting of Edna Buchanan to produce an unsettling tale that, unlike most detective fiction, is not neatly tied up at the end. I enjoyed both of the previous books and am enjoying the third one.
Townsend, the state prosecutor he has loved for the past three years-ever since they met on the infamous Cupid investigation-is getting the calls in the middle of the night as well. Auch dieser Band war wieder super spannend und vom Schreibstil her gut zu lesen. Fair use is a use permitted by copyright statute that might otherwise be infringing. Dann war es mir auch etwas zu. Strangely enough there is something about these novels that keeps my attention focused and I never considered it any waste of time. As a former Assistant State Attorney in Miami, author Hoffman knows mean streets and psychopathic killers - she brings all to frightening life. J Townsend heeft hem mee achter de tralies gekregen en mag er niet aan denken dat het proces over gedaan moet worden.
However, there is hardly any new information given about any of the characters, which I find disappointing. There is not as much courtroom action in this one as the first, but everything moves along at a brisk pace, with an ending that has a nice hook to set up the last book of the trilogy. The ending of this book appears to blatantly reveal what to expect in the third book, The Cutting Room. Een thriller moet voor mij meer in z'n mars hebben dan alleen gedetailleerde gruwelijke moorden. But it does make me want to read the next book in the series because I want to know what happens to Bill Bantling. When the killer petitions for and receives a Huff hearing, based on an affidavit from his former attorney that she concealed evidence and did not provide him with the best defense she could have, the judge has no choice but to gra Intriguing characters and a good plot, with several convoluted subplots.
