Dr. Robin Ransom is a therapist to first responders, cops, and spies. She has a problem. She is being blackmailed via email by a nameless, faceless crook. Things go from bad to worse when the neighbor who helped deal with the threat is found dead and her newest patient tries water boarding her for information on the enigmatic Blue Devil. With no good options, she makes a desperate attempt at escape.
Diamond is a former CIA agent turned widow turned somebody whose services are most definitely not for hire. As she is struggling to figure out what is next for her, an intriguing case falls practically in her lap. From a video gaming Beastmaster in Michigan, to a suicide bomber in Virginia, to a psychiatric conference in the south of France, Diamond jumps in with her usual flair for destruction and chaos. But Fate isn’t satisfied, pushing Diamond into a position where it is either her or the person she cares for most.
This is the third book in a fun mystery series. While this novel reads rather well on its own, one should really read (or listen to the podcast of) the first novel in the series to understand why Diamond needed to fake her death.
Diamond is a woman with an attitude. While she is no longer in her CIA agent status, she is still one mean opponent, even if a bit bumbling from time to time. Her character is something else and she has help with a tough side kick and a young technology whiz.
This is a good mystery for readers who like an over the top heroine providing over the top action and intrigue. You'll learn a bit about psychopaths and sociopaths and get some humor too.
My rating: 4/5 stars.
