This story is told with the usual humor and irreverence that Charley is known for. However, Charley seems to have grown a bit now, she is funny but seems just a tad more mature than in past books. Do not fret though, there are still plenty of scenes that will have the people around you looking at you as if you were nuts as you laugh hysterically through parts of this.
There is so much going on that it would be very difficult for me to re-cap without giving away too many spoilers, I will say that we end on a bit of a shocker, a sort of cliff-hanger, but not (if you know what I mean!)
Things are heating up at Calamity's the cop hangout. All of a sudden, the place is over-run with women! It will not be difficult for you to figure out why, but it is a lot of fun watching Charley stumble around the answer.
At this time, Charley also has more than twenty different women of all ages hanging around her apartment - not quite ready to pass over. There is an arsonist on the move and Charley suspects Reyes (naturally!) Then Charley realizes who it really is and things sort of heat up from there. There may be a serial killer on the loose. Could Gemma, Charley's sister be next?
There are tons of spectacularly erotic scenes, a lot of real love, danger, pain, Captain Eckert suspecting Charley of something, and Rocket predicting something not so nice for Reyes.
This book was the usual fun, funny, sexy, quick read that you will not want to put down until you are done. If you took the best of MaryJanice Davidson's early Betsy the Vampire Queen and melded it with Janet Evanoviches, Stephnie Plum---you still would not get half the laughs, half the mystery or half the fun.
