Jill Andersen is one of Baltimore's best and brightest detectives, but she harbors a dark secret -- a secret that threatens to come out when the body of Dr. Trent Roberts is pulled out of the Chesapeake Bay. Dr. Roberts' connection to Jill reveals a past that involves a tour in Iraq, a secretive cybernetic experiment, and a conspiracy that involves a native son.
Can Jill solve the case while still keeping her secret? Will her partners at the Seventh Precinct find out what she's so desperate to hide? What was Dr. Roberts looking into that led to his murder? And perhaps the biggest question of all...

Can I just say, WOW! The main character here already deserves 10 stars, and she’s everything I love about strong females. She’s smart, funny, kicks ass, and knows what she’s doing. She also has a heart and can be a simple human sometimes, so that we all can relate to her, and she’s stubborn and strong when it comes to her work. She’s what you get if you cross the women sleuths and superhero genres, plus throw in a good deal of author’s imagination and humor. I can tell right away the author must be a very fun person to hang with.
The secondary characters strengthen this impression, because all together, they form an impossibly cool team – and you know how much I appreciate it ;) The story has it all – mystery, thriller, suspense, drama, and ACTION, so much epic, well-written action that there’s no place for slow chapters.
The pacing is really great, pushing the story forward just when it feels like it’s slowing down. Even though many of the intrigues are resolved early, the suspense is built in an original and mind-gripping way till the very end. The flashbacks to the past make it especially hard to put the book down, and they also help us get to know Jill better and understand her motivations and feelings.
I think, whether you’re a fantasy or sci-fi fan or not, if you love action – read this one without a doubt. The author did a really great job introducing the series, and something tells me the next book will be only stronger.
*I’d like to thank the author for giving me a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review

I didn't really know what to expect from this book, but I was very pleased. It was a very good read. It tells the story of a woman who is "modified" due to taking part in a hidden experiment. She is not only a cop, but a hidden vigilante.
This book is written well and is full of crime drama and suspense. I absolutely love Jill and find her strength honorable. She went through a lot when she was young, but never let it stop her. She continued to grow and now she is doing what it takes to help out her city, on the front lines and behind the scenes.
I want to say thank you for allowing me to read and review this book. It is definitely a good book and is one I'd highly recommend....
