I liked liked this book. IU really liked the suspense and action. I loved Mason and Ava together and how Mason fights to not let Ava push him out of her life as she is falling apart while also being very busy on the task force. I advise you to read the first two books of this series to give you background and bring things together. Why didn’t Ava’s professional training kick in? Ava is on vacation from her job why is she being allowed to go with other agents to crime scenes ? Especially since she isn’t bouncing back from the mall shooting and facing the shooter? Jayne what a twisted wench Ava has to get her out of Ava's life before she destroys her with all that is going on with Ava. I enjoyed the twists in this story. I liked the characters a lot and the twists and turns of this book and I recommend it.
