Goodreads:  On the very night she gets engaged to the man she loves, sex-crimes prosecutor Anna Curtis’s professional life takes a shocking turn that threatens everything she holds dear. A few miles away from where she’s enjoying her romantic dinner, two separate groups are gearing up to raid a brothel. A vicious killer known as Diablo—the Devil—leads one group. A few minutes later, Anna’s own investigative team heads in to search the brothel, as part of an ongoing fight against human trafficking in DC. Both groups are caught off guard, with deadly results.

As Anna investigates the bloody face-off, the boundaries between her work and home life begin to blur when she discovers a web of long-buried secrets and official lies that lead straight to her doorstep. And everything Anna counted on—the happiness she seemed so close to securing—comes into question as Diablo moves in for yet another kill.

Kritters Thoughts:  The third book in the series with US Attorney Anna Curtis and this one centers around the mix of gangs and sex related crimes.  A prevalent gang in the DC neighborhoods MS 13 takes center stage in this installment.  Anna Curtis and her team get to the bottom of who is in charge in this gang and tries to bring their organization to a halt in the DC area.

Again another book in this series that I love.  With book three, it was interesting to see Anna Curtis keep evolving as a character and then how the author was going to incorporate sex crimes into another major investigation.  Weird to say - but I liked the mix of violent gang crime mixed with the sex crimes.

I read these books back to back and I liked not having to hang on the cliff hanger from one book to another!  

I don't know how many books are planed in this series, I have two more to review this week, but I wouldn't mind many many more!

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
