Jinx Porter has returned as the Tarrant County constable following the resignation of his former girlfriend Raven. However, his second coming is not quite as pleasant as his first sixteen year term ago. Deputy Ivy did everything wrong as the team went to arrest Newton Marble Eye. Instead the felon escapes but not before he shoots Jinx.

Jinx resides in the hospital with his roommate being former homicide detective Sid Klevenhagen, who abruptly dies but his body vanishes. Sid sneaks back into his room to inform Jinx that he obviously did not die, but that Jinx was the target. As Jinx struggles to survive, everyone wonders if Raven is the culprit even while every single male that she knows proposes marriage to her except the one stud she loves.

The latest Jinx-Raven police procedural is a fun tale that provides immense entertainment to sub-genre fans. The story line is as exciting as the previous books in the series, but much more personal as Jinx is the target. Laurie Moore continues to furbish a solid series with a novel that hooks the audience from the moment Jinx explains to his outrageous bunk mate what went wrong.
