I loved this book. At first, I thought it was going to be boring, but it ended up being really good. I'm starting to love these Tamara Hayle mysteries and I don't usually like mysteries. The story had a a great plot and memoriable characters.

This was my first Valerie Wilson Wesley mystery and I was looking forward to finding a good new series based on the reviews I read. I like her style of writing, I liked her characters--though the mysterious boyfriend was a bit much. I had a big problem with what another reviewer referred to as "her lack of deductive reasoning". Tamara's assignment is to find Gabriella who is most likely holed up with her friend Rook. When Tamara (in a giant coincidence) spots Rook with Gabriella's stepmother she follows him. But rather than grabbing her big chance at tailing Rook back to Gabriella she instead stops to talk to him and, of course, scares him off. Huh? I found myself yelling at the book!

Format: Hardcover
The main character in the novel is a black woman private investigator, Tamara Hayle, hired to find a young woman who has disappeared - or has she? The trail takes Tamara behind the glitter of Atlantic City, into the seamier side of life. The city has become a magnet for both homeless teenagers and evil people who prey on them. An evil man, from unknown origins, is protected by powerful people he is supplying with young women.
Tamara's search for Gabriella Desmond leads her into a snakepit where her own life is in danger. People who knew Gabriella turn up dead, and Gabriella does not want to be found. Along the way, Tamara's old friend Basil appears. The plot ends with a surprising double twist.
A procurer is eliminated, but who did he work for? The story leaves powerful people unidentified, including one killer who is still out there as a 21st century Bluebeard. In that respect, the black hats win. Based on content, I would give this novel a PG-13 rating.

This book in my opinion left a lot to be desired. Tamara usually has more on the ball than she did in this book. I know she's no superwoman, but really her deductive reasoning was way off base here. And, does Basil DuPre have to show up all the time. I'm honestly a little tired of him.

Valerie, why? Of all the sacrifices that could have been made, why get rid of Tamara's faithful rust bucket, the Blue Demon? I read about all of the rust stains, wheezes, and jump starts starting with the first novel. Aside from that, this novel was read by me in two days, and that is how excellent it kept it's pace in story. Tamara Hayle, P.I. is back and hired by a black socialite to find her missing runaway daughter somewhere in the bowels of Atlantic City. From the first chapter, Tamara's search was packed with intriqued and quite a few dead bodies lying around, thanks to a serial killer preying on runaway girls. Add the mysterious Basil Dupree to the mix and this novel had everything a mystery lover wants. Now all she needs is another demon in her life and it's all good again! Great job, Ms. Wilson!

If you're looking for a quick mystery read, then this was the way to go. Frankly, I was disappointed. After my book club read "Ain't Nobody's Business" we were eager to try one of Wilson Wesley's mysteries. However, the group's general consensus was that the book was too short, too predictable, and the storyline was not all that original. I wouldn't discourage anyone from reading her mainstream novels, though.

AA Newark PI Tamara Hayle is at it again. This time she's in the glitz, grime and sin of Atlantic City trying to locate the runaway daughter of a wealthy client. And as always Tamara's delicious dark guardian angel Basil Dupre is not far behind, showing up just when Tamara needs him.I think this is the best Tamara Hayle mystery in the series. The Devil Riding finds Tamara on one of her most dangerous assignments. She has to go undercover and mingle with crime bosses, druggies, the late night ladies and all of the underbelly people in Atlantic City. When her car is literally blown to pieces as a warning, she knows that she is in over her head. Yet as frightening as the worse scenario is, it still can't touch the horror she finds in the runaway's own home with her "loving" family.The Devil Riding finally gives us a further peek into Basil's life. This time around although he's here to help Tamara he is also here to find a daughter he never knew he had.This is excellent writing and very good reading.Vannie(~.~)

This is a very interesting tale of murder, mystery and betrayal. There is a serial killer on the loose and Tamara's hired by a wealthy wife and mother to go under cover to find her missing daughter before the killer strikes again. But does she find her in time? As the investigation unfolds, some interesting turn of events begin to occur that has you wondering exactly what are the facts surrounding the daughter's disappearance.
The Devil Riding is a very fast paced mystery that will captivate you from the beginning of this tale to the last pages of this surprising finish!
