Psychologist Kieran Finnegan is thrust into the middle of an investigation into human trafficking when a desperate woman shoves an infant into her arms and then flees...only to be murdered minutes later on a busy Manhattan street. Despite the fact that it isn't an FBI case, Special Agent Craig Frasier starts poking around, because Kieran can't stop thinking about the child and the victim. Their one lead comes through the pub, Finnegan's on Broadway. One of the waitresses also volunteers at a church outreach center, and had been in contact with a distraught young pregnant woman, whom she recommended Kieran to as someone who might be able to help her.
When Kieran goes to the outreach center to do some off-the-books investigating of her own, she is approached by two women who are worried for their missing friend, and who reveal that they were part of a human trafficking ring that did business in babies. As Craig and Kieran delve deeper into the underbelly of NYC trying to find out more, the dangerous elements of the ring come to the surface, hoping to silence Kieran before she exposes them.

I have to admit to you I wasn't sure why I choose this book to review. I'm saying this not because I thought it wouldn't be a good story, I happened to love Heather Graham so that's not the issue. It was because I hadn't read the first two books in the series and usually don't read out of order.
This time I did. Since I'm a little behind on her I really didn't know at first it was out of order. In fact when the tour came up I didn't even read what the book was about. I knew I enjoyed her books so I jumped right in.
The good thing about this is that even though the characters are the same for each book the plot is different. This isn't a continual story, it just has the same characters for each new book.
This made it much easier on me to read. I really liked both Kieran and Craig. You can really feel the affection between these two and they work so well together solving this mystery. I really felt this was more of a mystery then a romantic suspense. I didn't think it was heavy on the romance. Of course that could be because their romance began in the first book so by now it's old hat to them.
The fact that it wasn't heavy on romance didn't stop me from enjoying the story. It's well written and the charcters are very enjoyable. You'll find that you can get lost in the mystery of what's going on and want to know where it's going. This is a wonderful book that can be read by either straight fiction readers or those of enjoy romantic suspense.
