Wow, that was out of sight. I had to keep telling myself to breathe while I was reading this excellent book. I want more ALex Wolf Please? I want to know what else she gets into and get the bad guys. Boy, the late nights I spent reading this book to find out what the Wolf was doing next.
When you start it takes a while to find a place you want to stop which is hard to do. Why is there only 2 books in this series? Alison you left it open for another book or more, are you writing another to surprise your faithful readers. We are patient for awhile. I love the other characters in this book, great friends to have and the things they went through. You have to read the book to find out. Credo Hope is also good, the first in the series you won't be sorry you did.
Det. Alex Wolfe and her partner, Casey are on the video scene looking for 2 missing girls. Someone tosses Alex into the stall with a mean Brahma bull and she takes a beating. She helps out her mafia friend, Gianina Angelino, with finding possibly her dead brother's granddaughter. Alex and Megan get caught up in a child pornography situation with police cover-up. Alex continues to do battle with Lt. Characters, but her Sgt. Is helping her to do a better job. Alex is a hero. Love this series.
I do not usually write reviews of books, but after reading both books in the Alex Wolfe's series (Credo's Hope and Credo's Legacy), I felt the need to share. I really like murder mysteries and love them even more when the detective is a woman. The way Ms Holt uses words to set the picture into action makes you feel as if you are there watching it unfold. I love the interaction between the characters. The way Alex and Megan talk to each other and care for each other. I found myself laugh out loud. I can identify with Alex on so many levels the main one being, engaging my mouth before my mind.
My only fear is, I hope this is not the last book in the Alex Wolfe series. I feel the connection with these characters and cannot wait to see what trouble Alex, Megan, and Casey get into next. Poor Kate, keep the anti-acids handy.
Ms Holt please keep writing, you are a very talented person.
