When I heard the description for this book I just knew I had to read it. Luckily I was able to get my hands on the first two books. I highly suggest you do that. I absolutely loved this series. I just wish Chris would do a novella about Jack and George. I'd love to hear more about them and how they met. I would also love a comic about Isabella since she is one awesome little girl. She's my favorite character in the series.
This is the third book and you can read it by itself but it is so much better when you read all three of them. I love the characters in this book and it is wonderful to see diversity. I'll admit that I was a little overwhelmed when I first started reading the first book because there are a lot of characters but Chris is able to weave everyone together like a master. I can't wait to read more by this author.
I also really love that Chris shows the lives of the people in this book who are all pretty much like family either by blood or choice. Instead of having the bulk of the attention on the big problem that's going on which is a murder you get to read about the characters lives as they are working on figuring out who killed the victim. Other books I've read that are thrillers tend to follow a certain formula which I do enjoy but Chris takes things a step further by allowing the reader to see what these characters do in their everyday lives. Sure something major is going on but there are also normal types of problems so these characters are very easy to relate to. I was sucked into this series from the start.
