THE DEVIL'S BREATH (A Sydney Rye Novel, #5) by Emily Kimelman


THE DEVIL'S BREATH is the 5th novel in Emily Kimelman's Bestselling Sydney Rye Series of mysteries. This series feature a strong female protagonist and her canine best friend, Blue. It is recommended for the 18+ who enjoy some violence, don't mind dirty language, and are up for a dash of sex. Not to mention an awesome, rollicking good mystery!

One of Sydney Rye’s dear friends, Hugh Defry, has been accused of a brutal murder, but even though he has no memory of the night, Sydney believes he is incapable of such violence.

Called to investigate by Robert Maxim, a man she has until now, considered her greatest enemy, Sydney flies to Miami searching for the real killer. Rye’s suspicions are raised when she learns that Maxim not only wants to work together but also wants to build a friendship. She doesn’t begin to understand his motives until her former lover follows her to Florida to tell her a devastating secret.

As more people from her past turn up, and not knowing whom to trust, Sydney sees that her personal fight for justice has become something more than she had ever imagined and she is pushed towards making a decision that will change not just her life but possibly the future of the crime fighting.

THE DEVIL'S BREATH (A Sydney Rye Novel, #5)

My review:

Sydney, Blue and the gang are back.  Sydney is stronger than ever but still unsure about who to trust.  Mulberry is working for Bobby Maxim and she KNOWS she doesn’t trust him.  But when Bobby invites her to help in the investigation to prove that Hugh (her dead brother James’ boyfriend) was framed for murder she has to do it. 
THE DEVIL'S BREATH is the latest in this dark often quirky mystery series and is just as good as the previous installments.  The author keeps you guessing from one moment to the next.  This is a fast paced can’t put down till you finish book.
