My Review

Annie and and her neighbor Angel have been close friends for quite a while, and I was happy to see them become more than friends in No Pity in Death. They’re good for each other.

Once again, Annie ends up involved in investigating murders. This time, there are an unusual number of terminally ill patients dying in the hospital. It is suspected that someone in the hospital is helping them die. Since Annie already knows Detective Frost, she agrees to help investigate by going through charts and keeping an eye out for anything suspicious, which she’s good at.

Annie is still trying to get over the fact that she almost died at the hands of Ian, and him contacting her doesn’t help at all. And now Angel is in danger as well. Can these two not catch a break?

I thought Annie wasn’t quite as clueless as she was in the first book. I was getting tired of her temper but had to remind myself that she’d been through a lot, and she did eventually realize that she was being nonsensical. I was impressed by the fact that things weren’t blown out of proportion like they are sometimes in fiction. She and Angel fought and made up.

I enjoy Helen Starbuck’s writing. It flows well as does the narration by Suzanne T. Fortin. I liked No Pity in Death more than The Mad Hatter’s Son, and I am looking forward to Burden of Hate, the next book in the series.
