Title: Angelica (The Detective Mike Eiser Series Book 2)
Author: Clabe Polk
Genre: Mystery, Suspense
A long time ago, Angelica Vicetti did some very bad things with some very bad men. Now she’s built a new life for her family, far from Las Vegas.
Now it’s all about to come crashing down.
Angelica Vicetti of Las Vegas has become Angela Cassetta of Poplar Bluffs, just outside Atlanta, Georgia. She's built a successful real estate agency, and the son she rescued from Vegas when he was a youngster is now a high school baseball star and destined for great things.
But the mob bosses in Vegas who forced her underground haven't forgotten about her. A string of hit men come to town to kill her, but each time she saves herself and her son, with the help of her friends and Mike Eiser, a local Sheriff's detective who has seen far worse.
Then things get even more complicated, when one of the hit men changes his mind and becomes strangely important to Angela in a whole new way... and a team of Federal agents come to town and ratchet up the odds. Suddenly, sleepy little Poplar Bluffs is awash in blood.
Angelica will have to take it all the way to the edge and beyond – into murder, kidnapping, and lying to the Feds – to save herself and her son. But... can she survive the fight for her family's freedom?
Wow. A MUST READ. What a fantastic story this is.
I have to say that a small town like Poplar Bluffs faces the most crime a small town has seen since Jessica Fletcher lived in Cabot Cove.
I loved the story of Angelica and her family and just LOVED how every group of bads moved in, tried something and were dealt with in superb fashion. The growing relationship between Danny and Angela was beautiful.
The best line of the book has to be, 'What happens in the kitchen, stays in the kitchen.’
It became so funny how every type of bad guy/cop/etc. ended up eating at Bertie's.
A fantastic book that I loved every second of and am sorry it ended because I can't wait to read it again.
If you are only going to read one Detective Eiser book, make it this one. It is the greatest and a fun read.
I would give it 1,000,000 stars but must settle for 5+
My Rating: 5+ stars
