I like this series with Jane Lawless as the main character. Some of the books are really good, some are average reads. This one is somewhere in the middle. The story lines are filled with difficult subjects i.e., Vietnam War Vets with secrets, political machinations surrounding Ray Lawless, brother Peter with an outrageous and illegal scheme to save his marriage by finding a child his wife had given up for adoption, kidnapping and Jane and Cordelia, each with their own looming heartaches. Much angst, little resolution at the end and hanging solutions. A dark story for sure. Regardless, I enjoy Ellen Hart's ability to tell a story and to weave a good mystery. I am hoping there is more resolution in the next in the series.
