Review: Devil's Due (Red Letter Days #2) by Rachel Caine

Synopsis (via Goodreads): The money Lucia and her new partner received to open their detective agency had come with strings: any assignment delivered via red envelope had to be top priority. No sweat. No one could make Lucia do something she didn't believe in -- right?

Wrong. Lucia soon learned that every choice she made meant life or death for innocent people. No one could be trusted, not even the ex-cop she'd hired -- and fallen for. In fact, Ben might be her fatal weakness, if the powers warring to control the future used him to control Lucia....

My Take: You would think, being a Silhouette Bombshell title, that this book was light - on action, on romance, on plot. You'd be wrong. Very, very wrong. There are guns and flying bullets and anthrax scares and bad cops and discussions about string theory and ... other stuff. Lots of other stuff. Double crossing stuff that creeps me out.

So, the long and short of it is that this turned out to be a very good little series. It tied itself up nicely and gave us lots and lots of crazy shenanigans to keep the blood pumping. I'm totally not sorry I read this.
