Run Time: 6 hrs and 13 mins

Genre: Thriller, vigilante


The Sydney Rye series probably should be read in order. This is book 7. It can be read as a standalone. I basically did, since I’d read book 6 about 5 years ago. They’re good mindless thrillers.

Sydney travels to China with her faithful companion, Blue, to find Merrel who went to see a lady friend.

Additional Comments:

  • Sydney and crew, including Blue, are vigilantes. They take out the bad guys in the name of justice. They’re not as fun as the Leverage crew, but they have a similar agenda. Be bad guys to be good guys.
  • It’s a standard thriller. First half is all setup, but eventually, we get to the action.
  • The title actually has to do with the story! You have no idea what a rarity that is these days.
  • Governments being shady, not that far-fetched.
  • Sydney’s drama with Dan is kind of disappointing, but that’s a very small part of the story.
  • Merrell doesn’t get much page time.
  • New guy is an interesting addition.
  • Tech guy was just kind of there for the ride.
  • The random murder wasn’t really solved, that’s disappointing but probably lends to credibility.
  • There’s little sense of closure because there are distinct threads that lead to the next book. That’s a cheap tactic to try to get you to buy the next book. That’s why I like omnibus titles. Would the mystery with Deklan make me buy something else, well no but I’m sure it works for some people.
  • Content Warnings: Some violence. There are a few hard curses.


Sydney Rye’s not exactly an angel, but she’s got some definite ideas on right and wrong and heaven help you if you’re on the wrong side of that.
