Review: The Devil's Breath by Emily Kimelman

The Devil's Breath
by Emily Kimelman

Pages: 222
Format: ebook
Buy the Book: Amazon

Goodreads:  One of Sydney Rye’s dear friends, Hugh Defry, has been accused of a brutal murder, but even though he has no memory of the night, Sydney believes he is incapable of such violence. 

Called to investigate by Robert Maxim, a man she has until now, considered her greatest enemy, Sydney flies to Miami searching for the real killer. Rye’s suspicions are raised when she learns that Maxim not only wants to work together but also wants to build a friendship. She doesn’t begin to understand his motives until her former lover follows her to Florida to tell her a devastating secret. 

As more people from her past turn up, and not knowing whom to trust, Sydney sees that her personal fight for justice has become something more than she had ever imagined and she is pushed towards making a decision that will change not just her life but possibly the future of the crime fighting. 

Kritters Thoughts:  The fifth in a series, so if you aren't up to date, you may want to pause here and go read the first books in the series.  Most of these books are just over the novella length, so don't feel like it will take you awhile to get caught up.  Take a weekend and you can maybe get to this point.

Sydney is back in the States and back to help right a wrong.  One of her friend's Hugh is being accused of murdering someone and he has no recollection of the murder or really the evening - so Sydney to the rescue with her team behind her to help find the real murderer.

The one thing that I loved about this was of all the books, this one felt like it reviewed major plot points of the past.  I liked the review and enjoyed seeing characters from the past come together and make appearances in this book.  

All of the Sydney Rye series is action packed - like an episode of Alias, she puts herself in the most crazies of situations, but her, the dog and her friends get her out of the predicament each time.  

Tomorrow I am reviewing the 6th book in the series, so come back tomorrow to check out my thoughts on the next in the series.

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