Publisher's Summary

No one is as they seem....

While the villain Frank Pagliacci has been defeated, all is not well in Bridges. The Four Families accuse each other of spying while Red Dog attacks escalate. Aristocratic jewel merchant Dame Anastasia Louis, styling herself "The Queen of Diamonds", hires her long-time friend, private eye Jacqueline Spadros, to collect from her debtors so she can leave the city.

But Jacqui can't leave David Bryce's kidnapping and the murders of her teenage informants unpunished. Convinced that her mortal enemy, the madman "Black Jack" Diamond, was complicit in the crimes, she pursues ways to prove it. The scoundrel and his crew, however, seem to be one step ahead: the terrifying man in white is seen outside David's home, forged letters are appearing across the city, and merchants in the Spadros quadrant report threats from a man who fits his description.

Jacqui is warned of a plot against her life. Those who try to warn Jacqui are murdered, and evidence emerges that Jacqui's mother is next on the list. With time running out, Jacqui is forced to make a horrifying choice.

Someone will surely die. Will it be Jacqui, or her mother?

Note: this is chapter two of a 13-part serial novel, the Red Dog Conspiracy. While it's not mandatory to have listened to chapter one (The Jacq of Spades), it's highly recommended to do so before venturing forth.

    "Can't wait for part 3!"

    I loved the many different characters and the narration was so skillful, so complex. I have listened to this several times and can't wait for part 3!

    Story
    "Great atmosphere but hard to connect with"

    My review for this book is going to be very similar to the first book. I love the atmosphere and the setting of this story. I think the characters are very clever, and yet, I still feel like I'm missing something. Its been hard for me to connect with the story for some reason, and I'm not sure why. There is a lot going on in the book, and the story moves at a fairly leisurely pace. I want to keep reading this series for the atmosphere alone, but I'm not left with as much satisfaction as I would expect. Maybe a bit more action, or a condensed storyline to move things along a little quicker. I listened to the audio version of this book narrated by Machelle Williams, and I liked her narration. Her voice fits very well with the character, and is pleasant to listen to.
