It has been almost three years since a serial killer terrorized the citizens of Miami and it was largely due the brilliant prosecution of assistant state attorney C.J. Townsend that William Rupert Bantling was found guilty and sentenced to the death penalty. An anonymous telephone call had a police officer stop his car and open Bantling's trunk where the cop found the body inside. They had enough cause to get a warrant to search his home where plenty of evidence from his other fourteen victims was also found. C.J. knew going in that the officer didn't have probable cause to search the car but she wanted to try him and find Bantling guilty because he raped her continuously for four hours. Everyone who knew about the tainted evidence entered into a conspiracy of silence but now there is a new serial killer operating in the Miami area and his victims are linked to the trial of William Rupert Bantling which means C.J. is in danger. C.J. has never gotten over the assault and rape that occurred three years ago and it is affecting her relationship with Special Agent Dominick Falconetti of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. It takes the protagonist a while to figure out what is happening but she lacks the evidence and doesn't have a clue who is behind the murders.… (mais)

READ IN DUTCH

I didn't read the first book in this series - I know, my bad - but it really felt like I missed a lot, because this book has so many ties to the first one. I would definitely recommend you to start reading the first book, Retribution, because I felt like I missed a great deal.



The story itself is quite interesting, cops are being killed and it seems like someone knows about a cover-up that has taken place in - you guessed it- the first book. The writing is nice, the book is fast paced and a lot happens. Still, I never really got the feeling that I really was enjoying the story though. It just didn't seem special enough. ( )

After I read Cupido, I was very curious about this book. How C.J. would be doing, if Bantling really was put away etc.

At first, I had no idea that this was the second book n a row, because it started 'all over' again. Only in the course of the story one finds out how this second book is linked to the first.
That is okay, though.

I was a bit disappointed however, by this second book. I can't exactly tell you why. The thing is, that it didn't keep me reading as the first one did. I was not so very curious, anxious to find out how it would end this time. With all events happening I never had the (almost) unbearable tension of 'will justice be done? will all end well?'

I will not give away a lot about the book. The ending, when this one case is involved is okay, a bit predicatable and sort of repetition of events, but okay. When the realtionship is involved, the ending is nice, a result of the end of the case at hand.
I just want to say that I find the totally open end to the whole book very frustrating. I have no idea if there's a third book (already) and that bothers me, because I want to know how it ENDS. Be it happy, be it a sad ending, I need a dot to the story somewhere.

I think it is very well worth reading. I will not read this a second time, I hope I'll not be waiting for a third book that will never be written.

I think I need to read the one before this one...

Hoffman did an excellent job explaining the legal system, but the story was weak. CJ Townsend is a rape survivor and an ADA who takes down bad guys left and right, but she spends the whole book being a wimp and whining. I'm not sure if the book was supposed to be a gritty crime novel with some romance or a romance novel with a mystery. Either way, I won't be reading anything else in the series. Y'all know I do not do romance novels! ( )

Están apareciendo muertos diversos agentes de policía. La puesta en escena y las heridas de los cadáveres sugieren la existencia de un asesino en serie, aunque algunos detalles parecen apun-tar a una posible conexión con los carteles de la droga y, por tanto, a la existencia de una trama de corrupción. La investigación, que se presume compleja, se encomienda a Dominick Falconetti, agente especial de la Policía de Florida, avezado sabueso y de una inte-gridad a toda prueba. Está vinculado sentimentalmente desde hace tres años a C. J. Towsend, fiscal del estado de Florida, a la que conoció durante el estremecedor caso de otro asesino en serie, el llamado Cupido, al que C. J. logró hacer condenar. Muy pronto C. J., implicada en la investigación por su cargo, empieza a sospechar que en el nuevo caso hay un vínculo con su pasado. Demasiados móviles, y algunos demasiado personales, para los asesinatos. Falconetti y C. J. se encuentran ante un explosivo secreto que quizá sea muy peligroso revelar... ( )
