Goodreads:  David Sarac of the Stockholm Police Force’s Intelligence Unit, weeks after his violent encounter with the enigmatic high-level informant, Janus, is recuperating from his gunshot wounds. While the hunt for the elusive Janus has ended, the secrets and lies linger. The mysteries of that night deepen when David’s nurse slips him an anonymous letter; the writer wants to swap secrets with David to bring someone powerful to justice after a betrayal at the Janus shoot-out. David’s only clues are two photos enclosed with the letter: a snapshot of a happy family and another of a dead woman sprawled over the hood of a car…


Kritters Thoughts:  The second in the series and if you haven't checked out my review of book one scroll down to see what I thought of book one.

If you haven't read book two, I may be spoilierie in this review, so don't continue on unless you are ok to be spoiled or have read book one.  

This book continues close to the finish of book one.  Spoiler - David is alive at the end of book one, but his fate isn't fantastic when book two begins.  

This book's mysteries didn't flip and flop as much as book two, I was more confident in my knowing all the things later in the book but knew that I knew what I knew!  I liked this much better in this book.  

I also loved the main character more in this book.  I loved Julia and loved how she was a little naive and novice and was learning the politics of the department while trying to figure out the who dun it.  

The other thing that I appreciated more in this book was the family drama and how much family and work drama meshed and there was no line in this story.  I love the politics of politics and how family dynasty and politics can go hand in hand.

I don't know if there is going to be a book three in this series, I am on the fence as to if I would read it, but I definitely liked book two more.  


Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
