Publisher's Summary

No signs of smoke.

Sidney thinks she’s getting the hang of things only to find herself at odds once again with her annoying and unappreciative supervisor, Cyrus Tweel. To make matters worse, there’s been no talk about the Black Slate or the whereabouts of Smoke, leaving her in the dark and feeling more isolated than ever. During a stakeout with Cyrus, strange things begin to emerge. Black suns and oddly familiar children begin to show up. The Drake’s fingerprints seem to be on everything with which she’s involved. 

Reunion and mystery.

When Sidney begins to fret her new duties and doubt her peers, Smoke shows up in a suit looking as gorgeous as ever. While Sid is initially captivated, it’s not long before they butt heads over the next Black Slate assignment, a mysterious woman called Night Bird. 

Trouble close to home.

Timing is everything, but family troubles emerge a day before Christmas Eve when Sidney’s sister, Allison, goes missing and a mysterious stranger shows up at her parents’ home. Reluctantly, she agrees to take Smoke to her parents, but on the way, a semi-truck, owned by Drake, runs them off the road, totaling the Interceptor.  

Will Sid and Smoke get closer, or will the wicked powers that be force them apart?

Don't miss this one!

I'm only on the second book in this series, but am eagerly looking forward to the rest. They are well-written books with lots of action, realistic characters and paranormal elements galore. I like that these are short and to the point, traces of a possible coming romance, but not a romance novel by any means, with a heroine who isn't afraid to jump right into a fight. I am really enjoying these books! That being said, the clincher is the narration! I have never enjoyed a narrator as much as I do this one. I know there are some great narrators out there, really great ones, but the enthusiasm that Holly Adams has for this book truly drags me in and ensures that I will continue to listen. I just recommended this series to my brother, but stipulated that he has to listen to them, not read them. I might have read the whole series on kindle, but I certainly would not have been as excited about them. Ms. Adams does an amazing job, particularly with the many gun fights! I listened in awe to the first one, and will listen to the very end of the series, hoping for more. I received a free code for this book and am leaving an honest review of my own accord.

Further down the rabbit hole

I smell Smoke is the second book in Craig Halloran's Supernatural Bounty Hunter Files Series, and won't make much sense if you don't read Smoke Rising, first. 

This book picks up where the last left off, with the return of FBI agent Sidney Shaw. She is investigating another kidnapping case. She crosses paths with John Smoke, along the way.

Sidney finds that the children she had rescued in the conclusion of the first book, are in trouble, again. This makes Sidney wonder what people want these children, so desperately for. She finds herself pulled into a much bigger mystery and starts finding she has a lot of questions about the world she thought she knew.

This book gives me that second in a trilogy vibe, where there are more questions than answers, by the end of it. 

I find my interests very piqued to hear the conclusion in this arc. 

Holly Adams is an execellent, and very underrated narrator, in my opinion. She brings the exact atmosphere to the novel that it needs, and speaks clearly and articulately. She is definitely a rising star, whom I look forward to watching rise.

I would recommend this book to those who are fans of Supernatural, Black List, old film noir, and the Anita Blake novels.
