Return to New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Liliana Hart’s romantic suspense series, the Gravediggers, with this thrilling game of cat and mouse between a member of the Gravediggers and the brilliant woman hot on his heels.
Sometimes the dead do rise…
Dante Malcolm is a man of refined tastes. He was once a part of Britain’s Elite Intelligence Force, but there was a reason he’d never been able to capture Simon Locke, the notorious thief who always seemed to be one step ahead. That’s because Dante and Simon were one and the same, until Dante’s double life eventually caught up with him and now he belongs to the Gravediggers.
Eva Rothschild is a Detective Inspector with Interpol and is the one responsible for catching MI-6’s most notorious agent in his final heist—except the heist killed him. But something has never felt right about his death, and it’s haunted her for months. It was too easy, and Dante Malcolm was too smart to go down that way.
Dante might belong to the Gravediggers in body, but his heart and soul will always belong to the next job. The rest of the team doesn’t know about his alter ego because he made sure the information went missing from his file. So when the job he’s always waited for seems like a possibility, he sneaks out of the country like a thief in the night, only to run into the only woman who’s ever been able to match him in wit—and passion—for the job. Except they’re standing on opposite sides of the law—and only one of them can walk away with the prize.
An ARC was provided in exchange for an honest review and did not influence my opinion of the book.
‘Say No More’ is a story of intrigue, it was a cat and mouse game.
Liv and Danté start out on the same side, or so Liv thought. She is on the hunt for the notorious Simon Locke and Danté has signed up to help her. They were in love. It is after Simon steals a painting that Liv discovers Simon is really Danté. She doesn’t have time to process her new-found information as Danté seemingly falls to his death. What Liv doesn’t know is Danté had “die” and start working as an agent in the Grave Digger organization. His next task is to steal a nuclear device from the Sultan. Which brings him straight into the path of Liv again, because now Liv is in Dubai, hunting the Sultan because she has reason to believe he is trafficking young girls.
One thing I noticed about the book, is there was too much filler, which dragged down the plot and slowed the story down. I wished there wasn’t so much explanation and maybe, even more dialogue, something to get it moving faster. I understand the need for description and background information, but being that it is told in 3rd person, it became boring. I felt like the story was being told to me and I wasn’t able to “experience” the story. Which really was a shame, because I really liked the story line and it had a lot of potential to wow me.
So, final verdict, it was an okay read. While there were some missing elements for me to love it, I did enjoy the story.
