by: Lilith Saintcrow
$7.99 mass market paperback
Released: September 2008
When prostitutes start showing up dead, pieces of their bodies cut out and missing, Jill gets called in. The trail leads her back to Flesh Alley and the haunted memories of her past. And when Perry, the top Hellbreed in town, starts acting funny, she's got a feeling he's involved up to his eyeballs. Too bad she can't prove it. When a nest of prostitute's bodies are found, Jill realizes it's not a who that's killing these girls, but rather a what.
As Jill tracks the beast responsible, dark forces come into play that could spell the end for Jill if she doesn't take care. For these players have no qualms about killing a Hunter who gets in their way.
Too bad they don't know Jill very well.
Book 2 grabs you by the arm as soon as you crack the cover open and gleefully drags you through the story to the end without letting go. It's a non-stop thrill ride of death and corruption, of games where the stakes are life and death, and about one woman who will do anything it takes to hold back the tides of Hell. Some of the scenes in this book might put the book into the Horror genre, but it's a fine line. Either way, it's an awesome series, and so unlike the things I've been reading lately that I'm hooked, and hooked solid.
