Welcome to my spot on the Angels Sing to Rest Tour!

Angels Sing to Rest  cover

"Angels Sing to Rest" begins where "Darkness Knows Me" left off: after the investigation into the death of the Deep Ellum Killer, Levi Devereux.
Detective Sergeant Olivia Gates returns from a two-month suspension, to find her team has gained a new member, her ex-husband is being released from prison, and a 10-year-old street kid has been murdered on her patch of South Dallas.
Her ex she can deal with, even when he drags their young son into the mix or so she thinks. The murdered boy with the crushed chest, isn't so easily handled and weighs heavily on her as more street kids are killed with an unimaginable sadistic flare and no discernible motive.
If the continuing body count wasn't stressful enough, Olivia's falling out with long time friend and colleague, Doctor Will Green, threatens any hope Olivia had for more than a friendship with the good doctor.
Drugs, gaming, prostitution and sadistic murders lead Gates and her team on a trek through the seamy underbelly of living rough on the streets of downtown Dallas.


I had not read the previous book (though I now want to), so I was a bit out of the loop in references to a character who is not in this book. The author gives you just enough info to have an idea of that previous story, but not enough to spoil going back and reading it. This is a roller coaster page turner, that will leave you guessing, them slam the answer on you, then give you another puzzle, and off you go again. Good luck trying NOT to finish it in one sitting! It is an interesting character study of 2 flawed main characters, who are finding their way in their 'friendship turned relationship', while working together to solve unspeakable crimes. Kudos to the author for giving us flawed, realistic lead characters, and  supporting cast with their own unique issues. Looking forward to book 3 and you will too once you read this one!
