Devil's Bargain (Red Letter Days #1)
by Rachel Caine
This book was gifted to me by the publisher (Harlequin UK Ltd) for an honest review. Thank You!
34-year-old Jazz is sitting in a bar when a man approaches her and hands her a red envelope. In the envelope is a check for a 100 thousand dollars and a letter saying she should partner with an unknown agency to open the private investigator's office that she has been wanting to open. Jazz and her new partner Lucia are very suspicious of the job offer. Jazz is attracted to the Lawyer Borden but she is pretty sure he is keeping something from her. There is a strange explanation regarding Actors, Choruses and Leads. Some people are important and cause ripples. Then it is explained that the world will end and Jazz is one of two people who can prevent this catastrophic apocalyptic event. This book ends on a cliff hanger so now I'm mad and have to find the next book. I wasn't really liking the story so much, the flow seemed off to me. It seemed to me that the story would work much better as a t.v. series then a book. It reminded me a lot of some t.v. shows that I have seen before. 3 stars.
