About The Book

Working off the books for FBI Special Agent Alex Monroe, Florida bounty hunter Lori Anderson and her partner, JT, head to Chicago. Their mission: to entrap the head of the Cabressa crime family. The bait: a priceless chess set that Cabressa is determined to add to his collection.
An exclusive high-stakes poker game is arranged in the penthouse suite of one of the city’s tallest buildings, with Lori holding the cards in an agreed arrangement to hand over the pieces, one by one. But, as night falls and the game plays out, stakes rise and tempers flare.
When a power failure plunges the city into darkness, the building goes into lockdown. But this isn’t an ordinary blackout, and the men around the poker table aren’t all who they say they are. Hostages are taken, old scores resurface and the players start to die.
And that’s just the beginning…

My Thoughts

This is not my first ride with Lori Anderson and JT, because if you are not aware this is the fourth series of Lori Anderson, a body hunter. Instead of turning the story more foreseeable, the stories turn much more intriguing and electric, so believe me when I say that this is my favourite book of the series so far!
Since I started reading I could feel that this would be a story full of adrenaline and tension; Lori have to play her life (and her family) in a poker game, and let’s admit it, she is not good at it, but you can expect that she will “survive”… But what I wasn’t expecting is the trouble she finds when she was at the poker game, it was brilliant! There wasn’t enough knowing that she was alone in a room with the most vicious men of the country, there was someone trying to boycott the poker game! And that’s all I can say, no more spoilers for my part!
I’ll admit that I love the characters; Lori, JT, Dakota, Red… their chemistry and friendship is amazing and well described, I almost felt part of their family! But I am glad they are only characters, their life is always at risk!
I loved this series from the first book, but as the story progresses I feel the characters are more evolved and the story is much more twisted and dark, you can read this book as standalone, but there are so many connections with the previous books of the series that I would recommend you to start from the beginning, the characters and story is worth every page. Just saying that I started the book last Friday and finished it a few hours later, so if you tried to contact me on Friday, you have to blame Lori, the book was so addictive that it was impossible to put down!
Deep Dark Night is the best title for the book, all the action happens in just one night, but in the end you’ll just want to start again! Ready for a dangerous Deep Dark Night?
