My Thoughts:
This is a short sweet instalment in the In Death series. Plot follows the same pattern as the full length books, just shorter story. So no room for twists. Quiet straightforward, but still enjoyable. In fact I like this better than Dark In Death which started to feel boring to me. It might be the book or might be just me reading too many JD Robb books. And I guess because it is not just Dallas alone knowing who the bad guy is intuitively. Although the supernatural element is stronger in this story than in full novels, like all short stories in this series tends to be, it is still good to read that it is not just Dallas alone who knows the plot. That kind where only she knows, kinds of gets old fast. So even though this is just a short story in the series, I would still rate this book a five.
