Another absolute classic from Tal
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This time I half guessed it right 🤣
Tal has such a talent that whenever I find to review his books, I find myself wanting to say the same things each time.
It’s no different here. If you’ve ever read a book from Tal, you should have your survival kit close at hand.
With this book, you’ll need it more than once as your heart will break just like Dakota’s did 13 years earlier when what he thought was his future was shattered by Shane.
I’m not going into any spoilers about the criminal element of the plot.
Other than to say, I’d got it partially right but still missed a crucial bit of evidence.
The scene setting is superb as ever, I really could feel the heat and taste the dust of this somewhat forgotten part of Texas.
This is such a visceral part of the narrative that it drives the story as much as the murder investigation does.
And, as it has law enforcement officers as its key characters, it’s as exceptionally researched as all of Tal’s other books.
Regarding Dakota and Shane, it takes a while for them to reconnect but 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 do the fires burn when they do!
So many other interesting characters too that I’m intrigued to find out where Tal goes with the series.
