Another splendidly written book by B.J. Daniels and worth every penny spent, I was thoroughly entertained by the story and also lost several of my nails, so engrossed was I with the suspense!! :)
Although I didn't quite understand the logic of the title, nevertheless, it is a beautiful continuation to an awesome series. It whispers solutions to some mysteries and leaves some mysteries unanswered for the successive books.
A deserving 4.2 out of 5 to Boots and Bullets. Don't miss it. :)
