Suzanne Rossi draws readers in from the very beginning in this smart and sexy suspense. Shelley Jackson is an admirable heroine, a reporter full of drive and determination and not apologetic in least for her thirst to survive and thrive in the cut-throat profession. It was highly entertaining watching her deal with her mixed feelings about her friend's death and her unwanted attraction to his brother. I envied her the quick wit she often displayed and the temper she was able to contain when dealing with her obnoxious coworkers. Jason Malloy is one of those larger than life leading men, the ones that appear too good to be true. His intensity borders on arrogance but is still attractive and I enjoyed watching him working alongside Shelley and their intellectual and personal interactions were beyond entertaining. I loved the insight into the worlds of journalism, construction and politics. The mystery was solid and progressive and I enjoyed the fact it wasn't too complicate nor too easy to believe. I have never been let down by this author when I'm looking for a fabulous suspense story and this one is no different, I highly recommend it and cannot wait to read the next offering.
