Blood might be thicker than water, but venom is stronger than just about anything …
It was supposed to be a nice, quiet, simple dinner with friends—but nothing is ever nice, quiet, or simple when you're Gin Blanco, the Spider, notorious assassin and current queen of the Ashland underworld.
This time around, someone seems to be targeting Stuart Mosley, the president of First Trust bank. Lots of people have grudges against Mosley, but the more I investigate, the more Mosley's problems seem to be connected to some of my own, especially when it comes to the Circle, the evil, shadowy group that is secretly responsible for much of the crime and corruption in Ashland.
But when another blast from my dark and deadly past as the Spider comes to light, I wonder if I'll be able to survive this dangerous new enemy, who has a burning thirst for revenge that will only be satisfied with one thing: my death.
Oh, yeah, this book was so fantastic! Yeah for more time with Gin and company, because they're so great, and their stories aren't over yet! We learn more about the Circle, while diving into a case where Gin has some serious regrets about. So great!
I love the fact that we got this case involving Stuart Mosley, because he's the one who Fletcher entrusted some pretty important things. Plus he's Finn's boss. So he's a pretty important character who, thus far, hasn't gotten a lot of face time. He has some adventures in this book!
While on that investigation, the past collides with the present, a case that Gin kinda feels like she screwed up with. Not with the killing, the lady was awful. But with the circumstances, which I'm not going to explain because spoilers!
I really enjoyed the flash back scenes, really enjoyed watching Gin face off against this lady, they were really intense! This book just had a ton of fantastic, amazing moments, and there was one big reveal at the end, which I can't wait to learn more about!
This book was absolutely amazing, and I can't wait for the next book, I need it, stat!
