Reading

Death Angel By Howard, Linda

Now this is a book I thought I'd have to give up on. Hooray! I was wrong!

Howard takes a dip into the Anglo version of urban lit at the very beginning. At least from the drug-dealing, sex-for-favors, assassin's point of view. Fortunately, like urban lit, there is redemption at the end.

The heroine's gutsy and calculating character at the beginning kept me reading despite my reservations. The hero's inner conflict and incredible cleverness also kept me going.
This gal had things well thought-out. Smarter than I ever would have been with her motives. But the hero is even smarter. They are equally determined to meet their goals both before and after the redeeming tragedy.

At the beginning I was iffy. Now I think this is one of her best.
