What a great sequel to the first book in the series! Valentín Pescatore is back and a couple of years have passed since the first book. I was a bit bummed that so much time had passed and that Pescatore was no longer in a relationship with Puente. There is still a bit of romance (well steamy scenes that is) because Pescatore seriously can't keep his hands to himself when he works with any female agents. I just really hope this whole different woman each book won't be a trend with this series.
I feel like I liked Pescatore more in this book than the first. I really enjoyed getting to see glimpses of his past during flashbacks or when he would talk with his childhood friend, Raymond. It seemed much easier to root for Pescatore while reading this.
The action and suspense in this book was awesome. Some horrific things happen in this book and I just couldn't tear my eyes from this book. I liked that this book didn't switch point of view like the last book, it seemed to help the plot progress faster. The twists towards the end really helped the book stay interesting to the final pages.
Sebastian Rotella really has a way of drawing readers in and giving them thrills until the very end. I can't wait to see what happens next. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the galley.
