FBI Special Agent Helene Alexander is a goddess. An actual frickin’ goddess. And her mission is clear, see that justice is served at all times or her days as a goddess are numbered.
Helene’s new FBI partner defines good-looking, but Miguel Sanchez, wants nothing to do with her ends-justify-the-means attitude. He knows through experience the type of guilt her actions can bring and Miguel wants nothing to do with Helene’s careless ways. Even if she’s so damned hot she makes him burn with the need.
When the serial killer they’re tracking strikes again, Helene and Miguel are drawn into a case that will challenge their most fundamental beliefs about justice and vengeance. But it’s the passion between them that forces a goddess to choose: eternal life with all her powers…or death—to save the man she loves.
I received an ARC Entangled Publishing for an honest review.
FBI Special Agent Helene Alexander is actually the goddess Nemesis. She is on earth with one mission – to exact justice. When Helene is reassigned to the New York field office of the FBI her reputation precedes her. For Helene, things are black and white and serving justice is the only option. She is seen as cold and calculating, with no hesitation to take down a perpetrator.
Miguel Sanchez, who has also been reassigned, has had his share of struggles (ie Unresolved Guilt). As soon as he sees Helene he is fascinated and drawn to her…but once they are partnered he convinces himself he can maintain a strictly professional relationship with her. Miguel notice some oddities about Helene, her social skills are lacking and her drive for ‘justice’ is almost frightening. He is wary of working with Helene, especially when it starts looking like she’s more out for vengeance than justice.
They are assigned a case called “The Broadway Butcher” that has gone cold for the other investigators in the office. A serial killer preying on actors, posing them purposefully after they’re dead, the crime scenes, the clues, the brainstorming. The suspense built as Miguel and Helene raced against time to find the killer and bring him to justice before another actor is killed, and the ending to the case was climactic.
Can these two agents accept their differences and catch the killer before there’s another victim ? With the twists and turns and a surprise ending you’ll just have to read this story to find the answers. Well Don Ms. Pineiro on another 5-start book.
