This is a fast-paced story and Avery is a likable protagonist. I found her honesty refreshing. She is teamed up with Kain, a man who is not your typical guy, and may be a bit paranoid. But, oh, those twinkling eyes. A quick read, there is a lot of action, good guys, bad guys, and some who may be in limbo. There is a touch of conspiracy theory, investment scams, and, yes, a budding romance. I hope Gauldin has more in store for Avery and Kain.
