When Lily stumbles upon the well-built corpse of a local body builder-his neck broken by a barbell-the town's underlying racial tension begins to boil over. The white victim was somehow connected to two unsolved murders of black residents of Shakespeare-and a dogged policeman is determined to stop the killing. But it is Lily herself who may have to decide whether to stay and fight for justice, or run away one more time.

I enjoy the Lily Bard series but found this one a little weak. Jack's character was good, hopefully we see more of him.

I liked her first book because of the strong woman character with ethics. This one, disturbing. She compromised. Instead of Ninja skills, rifles win the battle. I stead of respecting her body she is now plying. Example, almost the first words of her new romantic life was, "Every time I see you, I get a hard on." Then, she 'hid' this man of dubious past ( after he beat her up once) by luring a bunch of drunk redneck men while in her nightgown away from where he was hiding.
Given the sexual assault of her past, I was disappointed in this turn of character.
I will read the next one, and hope for
the best.

Lots of action in this one. I'm a fan of this series! Great characters and a very interesting storyline.

Book 2. I liked this one better than the first. Glad she has a romantic interest.
