DESERVES TO DIE is part of the series
about Detectives Alvarez and Pescoli, but it can be read as
a standalone. The only problem I had with it having not
read the other books in the series is it took me a minute
during the beginning of the book to not get the two
detectives confused as she jumped back and forth between
their lives. Once I figured out who was who and where they
stood in the story I was able to easily follow it. DESERVES
TO DIE is a good suspense that keeps you on the edge of
your seat till the end.
