My rating: 5 of 5 stars
That’s three out of three 5* reads for this stunningly good series from Charlie Adhara.
As with book two, the whodunit element had me guessing right to the end and I was jumping at red herrings all the way through.
I adore it when an author can keep me on my toes like that.
This one’s even more deeply focused on Cooper and Park’s relationship as well and by the end of the story I really was squee-ing out loud as the declarations of love got uber serious.
The political allegory is still as strong in part three, fear of the unknown combining with greed and corruption to pull together disparate people into a plot which sees murder committed on Oliver’s home pack territory.
As ever, Cooper and Ollie fail to communicate almost as much as they rely on the other and my heart broke for the BSI agent so many times as Park’s relatives treated him poorly.
But, when the proverbial hit the deck, each was quick to recognise the true bond between the two men and there’s a great tension-filled encounter which had me fist pumping.
Book four is going to be a doozy from the hints dropped in this one and I can’t wait. Sadly no word on when!
