The author seemed to find her footing in this third installment of the series. Our hero's battle with opiates was flushed out more (still not quite fully) and the relationship between the hero and heroine had deeper meaning, too. The Irish plight and the issue with the heroine's brother was pushed to the side and rushed at the end but this book had an overall completeness feel that I found lacking in the others.
I'm completely on board with this author's writing style, the dark/gothic setting ambiance and the emotionally in the trenches characters she creates. I hope to see more from her.
