Okay, this is one book that I neglected (by mistake, I add) when I was buying up the rest of the series, so I actually finished the series and then came back to this one - and it's gorgeous. If you like the rest, this is only a continuation of the winding plot, adding in our favourite characters.
And I for one am glad to see Asher/Anita/Jean-Claude happening. Asher is entirely too angsty for his own good *smiles*. I kind of wish that there was a little less plot and a little more romance, because at one stage the plot is buried in romance and so the last few chapters are mostly plot, which if the police work isn't what you read the books for, is a little odd.
Richard (who okay, I never really liked anyway, having fallen in love with Jean-Claude) has become a wreck, but you find yourself wishing Anita would just get over him, because she's entirely too much in love with him, when he's far too moral for her - even though Anita still tries to keep her morals afloat.
This is an excellent book - if you've not got the rest of the series, I'd say start collecting and if the rest of the series is your thing? Then so is this.
