This book is part of a series. It’s the 5th book to be exact. However, it can be read as a stand alone without being lost.
Syndey has changed her name and is eager to prove that Hugh did not commit murder. She owes him that much. Hugh was her deceased brothers boyfriend.
Mulberry is there to help Syndey. She feels a draw towards him but yet doesn’t trust him. At least not fully. Syndey doesn’t know what to think about Maxium either. She is full of all kinds of emotions.
I won’t give it away if she proves Hugh innocent or not. You’ll have to read it to find out.
If you like Mysteries this is a great book/series. I plan to go back and read the other 4. It’s fast paced and action packed.
One of Sydney Rye’s dear friends, Hugh Defry, has been accused of a brutal murder, but even though he has no memory of the night, Sydney believes he is incapable of such violence.
Called to investigate by Robert Maxim, a man she has until now, considered her greatest enemy, Sydney flies to Miami searching for the real killer. Rye’s suspicions are raised when she learns that Maxim not only wants to work together but also wants to build a friendship. She doesn’t begin to understand his motives until her former lover follows her to Florida to tell her a devastating secret.
As more people from her past turn up, and not knowing whom to trust, Sydney sees that her personal fight for justice has become something more than she had ever imagined and she is pushed towards making a decision that will change not just her life but possibly the future of the crime fighting.
Excerpt from The Devil’s Breath is available on Emily’s Website.
