This is one of the reads this month over at the Kindle English Mystery Book Club on Goodreads. DI Nikki Galena has survived traumatic events but they have left a mark on her which impacts her interactions and relationships with others and has left her with a burning desire more for vengeance than justice. She is partnered with Joe as a last chance to redeem her career. Nikki & Joe and their team of misfits investigate a crime spree that includes murder, assault, kidnapping, and random acts of violence perpetrated by villains wearing grotesque masks.
I did enjoy the fast paced action and want to the find out the resolution. The sense of place was well-developed and gives a feeling of tension as the reader waits for what will happen next. I did find that the reveal about the forces behind all the interconnected crimes was a little hard to believe, however there was enough good here that I would read another in the series. The characters in particular are engaging and show depth and emotion very well.
