Ms. Torre didn’t disappoint with the second book in the Deanna Madden series. Deanna is damaged. After having witnessed the horrifying murders of her family, something inside her broke and she now has this insatiable desire to kill.

In this book, Deanna continues her life in isolation and confinement but flirts with the boundaries of a “normal” life. She now has a boyfriend, Jeremy Pacer, the sexy and sweet UPS delivery guy, whom she goes out on dates with and she even ventures outside on her own a few times.

And while so much has changed for her, a lot stays the same. Deanna is still her alias, Jess Reilly, making high dough off the desires and fantasies of hundreds of men…

As this story unfolds, it’s apparent that as much as she needs to feel like she has a tight rein on control, she also needs people. She needs that human interaction and she wants to be loved and cared for. The very few people in her life: Jeremy, Mike and Derek (and to a lesser extent, Simon) are all important to her in one way or another. Underneath her dark urges, she is good and she does feel guilt and remorse.

But control is only an illusion. As she wrestles with keeping a tight lid on her urges…

...she also invites the obsessive interest of someone who like her, lives in the shadows and has the blood lust; the desire to inflict pain and watch life vanish before their eyes.

In true AR Torre fashion, this builds to a climax that had me holding my breath…

“...the blade flipped through the man’s hands. Open. Closed. Open.”





“Angel of death. Dressed in tight black, her head that of an elephant disproportionately large, the log trunk winding down and around.”

“Life is never a precious as when it is threatened.”

This is not a love story although it is about love…and the human psyche, human nature, dark desires, and evil. This was beautifully written and the characters and story had me enthralled from beginning to end.

I’d highly recommend this series although you should read The Girl in 6E before this one. If you like an original, dark tale with love, friendship, danger, suspense and salvation, this series has that and so much more!
