After the heist in Seattle, the gang Renee, Stone, Rook, Carlos and Grace all went their separate ways.
In this story, we follow Rook who after moving back to Philadelphia, is struggling to find work after everyone has shunned him including the rest of the gang. After he starts to hear voices and not even alcohol can drown them out, he decides to call his best friend Carlos” Medium” to see if he can help. But when an explosion in his flat puts them both in danger, he knows that he has to get the gang together to get to the bottom of who is out to kill him.
It was great to see that the characters hadn’t changed, Stone and Renee were still the strong silent type, Medium was still naive and Grace was still the confident savvy one. Written from Rook’s POV, whilst reading this story, you learn more about Rook’s former life and you understand why he comes across as annoying to some people. The comedy element was still there usually involving Rook and it was good to see Grace’s softer side.
I enjoyed reading this book and felt it was better than book 1, the collaboration by the 2 authors were seamless and you could not tell who wrote which scene. This story had more suspense and was full of action. The magical element was still there which added to the danger that the gang were in. A great read which will keep you gripped from page 1.
