Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Lena figures out at once that there's a problem, and she leads the other women to save the day. She had begun the story not wanting to be at Sin du Jour at all, but she concludes it knowing she has an important place there.

Con: As with the earlier stories in the series, there are too many characters and it can be hard to remember who's who. For example, if you didn't read "Small Wars," you won't understand the scene where Cindy thanks Ritter for saving her life when he found her and offered her a spot.

The ending that sets up the next story is a little cheesy.
