  • Great

    By easy with sufficient info
    Great book like the previous ones but I felt it was a little lazy of the author when Jessie got drugged again (an allergy had been used against her previously)
  • Love Her!

    By Boogieman77
    Enjoyed the whole series very much. Can’t put them down. Only wish they were longer.
  • Give up on editing?

    By Jsert175tt
    I know I shouldn’t be expecting a literary masterpiece, but did you figure by book 5 you’d have people so hooked they wouldn’t care about missed words, mixing up character names and poor sentence structure? Terrible.
  • Proofread

    By Mitch Rapp 28
    I enjoy this author’s writing but it is shocking how many grammatical and mechanical errors I find in each installment. Even Word would catch many of them so I don’t understand how these books make it through to print without correction. They detract attention from the story as they are so frequent and obvious.
  • Good title

    By Judles66
    Not that suspenseful like the previous books in the series.
  • Good but...

    By Boom boom 223
    I like the story a lot but there are a lot of typos. And misused names that causes some confusion while reading, putting Jessie’s name where someone else’s name was suppose to be.
  • Starting to get repetitive

    By Stepiehra
    I have read all of the Jessie hunt series up to this point. The books are beginning to get repetitive. The misspellings and grammatical errors are getting old, and at one point the author switched Jessie’s name with the victim. I keep reading because I want to know what happens to certain characters. The author is good at keeping your attention to get you to the next book.
  • Nice

    By Mirm27
    It was a nice read
  • Keep on reading!!

    By U'i Wahine💙
    Another great book! Keeps you wanting to read more. Highly recommended! Some spell checks here & there, But minor details!
  • Good thriller but not the best in the series

    By MacLoverPro9
    This book is a page turner from start to finish. Pierce finally develops some hints of romance between the Jessie and Hernandez, while maintaining the strong personalities of the characters. Even though Jessie Hunt’s character was a little distracted throughout the whole book, the story felt strong and very well crafted for the most part. I would have liked to see more backstory with Kat’s character and some of the references to the Propov crime family felt weak, but otherwise a very solid page turner with an ending that Blake Pierce and Jessie Hunt fans will love. Can’t wait to start the next book in the series.
