The blows have been coming hard at Dan and Amy, there have been loses and now there is betrayal. Someone close to them turns on them and it shakes Amy to her very core. Then there are the threats not only to the hostages but deliberate attacks aimed at against Atticus. Atticus will not leave the Cahills, he just won’t run away no matter what anyone says and it is his and Jake’s connections that get them closer to the next target. Then they hand over something they realise they really shouldn’t have, will they be able to get it back? Will they be able to prevent the Vesper’s from winning?

This book had pace, action and interesting character development. Amy goes through a big arc in this book. Things happen and it is nice to see her age shine through. Dan also goes through quite an arc as well, he has his own agenda for his own very good reasons. They both suffer from darkness in this one and their fragility really shines through. Atticus and Jake are give the opportunity to be the strong ones in this book, it makes the partnership stronger. Also Hamilton and Jonah are dealing with the consequences of their previous actions, Jonah in particular.

This was a good and solid addition to the series, it left me really wanting to find out what they do next.
