The investigations are heating up and so is the romance. A woman is missing, one of their own is kidnapped, and a young girl is sold into prostitution. Slater and Maggie take on organized crime to put an end to the trafficking of girls on the Florida coast and finally stop the man that killed Slater’s best friend.
Point of view:
1st person. Entirely from Eric’s POV.
I was really looking forward to this book after listening to book 1, My Sister’s Detective, last week. I would not recommend jumping into this without having read/listened to that first – this is wrapping up many mysteries started there.
This is a great series for those who want romance to take a smaller role in the story and while Slater & Maggie’s relationship does progress, it’s closed door. I continue to love the banter between Maggie & Slater as well as the rest of the characters. I’m thrilled that snarky teen Jasmine makes regular appearances and her role as pseudo-little-sister brings out a softer side to the sometimes “get off my lawn” Slater.
That said, this book continues some pretty serious themes including child trafficking, kidnapping, and murder. I like that Jones gives us a few smaller stories that weave together into a larger narrative. Slater & Maggie are officially kicking off their Private Investigation firm (the name selection process is at times hilarious). While continuing to probe Davey’s death, they also investigate a missing person, and pull off three different rescues. Not everyone is as trustworthy as they seem.
While everything feels wrapped up this time around, I’m definitely looking forward to book 3, Slater’s Tempest. While the ebook is available now – I’ll be waiting for the audio. My understanding is it should be released in the next few weeks.
Tom Jordon again gives a huge cast of characters unique voices and personalities. His ability and consistency with different ages, sexes, and accents really brought the story to life and makes it easy to keep track of who is who. I’m looking forward to Jordan’s narration as the series continues and I’ll definitely be looking for more of his work.
I received a free copy of this audiobook from Audiobooks Unleashed and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.
