Brian Freeman's second novel is a gripping, hard-hitting thriller set in one of the most fascinating, sexy and intriguing cities in the world, Las Vegas, and puts his on-going detective character Jonathan Stride on the trail of a cunning and relentless killer.

Elonda's seen most things working the streets. But it's a first when her client is shot dead in the act. Detective Jonathan Stride quickly establishes that the victim is M.J. Lane, son of a reclusive millionaire film producer. Any number of people might have wanted to kill M.J. Another death is troubling the Vegas force - of a little boy, killed in a hit-and-run incident involving a stolen car. Then the body of a woman is found in a remote farmhouse. Could the murders be linked? It seems the killer wants to send a message about the brutal slaying decades earlier of a night club dancer. That case was wrapped up quickly. Too quickly? Someone certainly thinks so - and he's set on murderous revenge for the sins of the past.

This second novel has a well paced narrative and solid characterizations. The story in this second book is a bit weak in the mystery part of it. Fun to read with all the sin of Sin City throughout the novel. It probably helps to read the first book Immoral to get a sense of the characters but it is not required. Worth reading if you like the genre.

Great book, fun read, Freeman seems to be able to measure the pulse of the reader and knows when to slow down and when to speed it up. Really like the Stride and Dial characters and although I cannot put my finger on the exact reason, Freeman's writing style is very much to my liking
