I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)

A little like Cut & Run with paranormal elements

Hell & High Water: THIRDS, Book 1 - Charlie Cochet, Mark Westfield

I liked it.

It had cool and interesting characters (Team Dex!!!) and some great banter.

The crime plot was a bit thin and predictable, but still solid I think.


The world-building was mostly done in an introduction, which worked out well, because the reader knew exactly what's what from the start. It was not exactly totally new and original, but it worked with the story and characters.


I think the biggest strength of this book was the dialogue. I really enjoyed those - and Agent Dexter Daley. A charming and funny character, but with depth.
