This is the second book in the Quinn and Costa series and I liked this one more than the first.  Costa has for the most part established his team and the plot focused more on the case.  Trying to do an undercover operation in a small town where everyone knows everything about everyone else is tough, but this is the task.  We start off with two crimes which turns into three.  Can the team manage them all and who can they trust?

I loved the team’s dynamic and how different the characters are and are still able to work well together.  In addition to being focused on the suspense and twists and turns, I loved how well developed the characters are and how invested I am in them.  I can’t wait to see how they develop in the next book.

This book takes place out in the wild and while I am a suburbs sort of girl, I find I love reading about the out and about and the people that dwell there. And there was enough detail that I felt a part of it, but it did not take over the story.

While I figured out part of where the book was headed fairly early on, I wasn’t fully sure who was trustworthy and enjoyed the unfolding of the details. 

This is a good crime procedural, that is story driven and has good character development.  I’d start with book one to understand where the characters came from, but this book could easily be read as a stand alone.
