    1. One of the darkest in Hart s Lawless series Quite gripping But dark Definitely dark Explores the connections between the Vietnam War and violence in American culture, then and today A meditation on how veterans of wars are influenced by the violence they take part in Also an exploration of how anyone can be violent, given an extreme situation That s the darkest part of the book a character you don t expect ever to be violent suddenly commits a very violent act because of extreme circumstances an [...]

    3. Peter s marriage to Sigrid is in trouble from Peter s end, because he wants children and she doesn t, after having given up a child for adoption when she was eighteen And Sigrid just plain wants She s ambitious in her career, wants to further her education, and doesn t share Peter s dream of the cottage with the white picket fence Peter goes searching for Sigrid s child, finds that she is definitely not in a happily ever after adoption, and literally snatches her off the street as she is return [...]

    4. Plot Summary Jane Lawless is a Minnesota restaurateur who maintains very close relationships with her friends and her family In this book of the series, Jane s father is running for governor, and family secrets, as well as the secrets of those involved in his campaign threaten the campaign s success, as well as the personal well being of many of the characters Many of the characters in this book have secrets, the least of which is their sexuality Jane and her sidekick Cordelia investigate the pe [...]

    5. Oh my god, this book was so bad The previous couple of books, I was disappointed But now, I m disgusted I mean, seriously Jane s brother Peter decides to hunt down his estranged wife Sigrid s daughter she gave up for adoption but not tell her he was doing it , then kidnap her and bring her back, which magically reunites Peter and Sigrid as a couple and makes her change her mind about divorcing Peter Not to mention the fact that Peter gets kidnapped That whole sequence was surreal Ms Hart wrote h [...]

    6. I love that Cordelia finally gets a partner in this one I also love the development of Hattie and then Mia and Cordelia s interactions with them I m worried, though, both about Peter, and about Jane Kenzie As much as I loved and adored Kenzie for driving all day to apologise for hurting Jane and I loved the sort of pseudo proposal , Jane was just so uncertain and I want to know about that.I m assuming that the next book will have about Raymond s tilt at the governorship, and about Jane Kenzie. [...]

    7. I had trouble with this latest installment in the Jane Lawless series grim, verging on a real downer even Cordelia s flambouyancy didn t lift things much I m still a fan of the series, but wouldn t blame others for not being able to finish this one.

    8. What stops this from getting 5 stars is the open ended story lines How did Ethan end up next to the victim What happened with Siggy and Peter and Mia A few too many story lines that weren t fully developed and probably should have been a separate book.

    9. After 20 or so Ellen Hart mysteries, you pretty much know what to expect What I did especially like was some movement and character development for Peter and his family An engrossing read, that had a few twists and turns.

    10. It s great to be with Jane and Cordelia again s been too long This seemed darker than others due to the close connection of some events to Jane and family I ll start the next one very soon as the election cycle continues in it.

    11. Jane s father runs for governor in this book, and there is also a fascinating look at the lives of Viet Nam vets The ending is fantastic.

    12. meh I usually enjoy this series, but I pretty much had to force myself to read this on It just didn t grab me.

    13. Fast read in less than 2 hours Fun book True to the characters, though Ellen Hart does drag some story parts our Very much a series write.Not her best, but still fun to read.
