Sometimes the dead do rise…

Dante Malcolm is a man of refined tastes. He was once a part of Britain’s Elite Intelligence Force, but there was a reason he’d never been able to capture Simon Locke, the notorious thief who always seemed to be one step ahead. That’s because Dante and Simon were one and the same, until Dante’s double life eventually caught up with him and now he belongs to the Gravediggers.

Eva Rothschild is a Detective Inspector with Interpol and is the one responsible for catching MI-6’s most notorious agent in his final heist—except the heist killed him. But something has never felt right about his death, and it’s haunted her for months. It was too easy, and Dante Malcolm was too smart to go down that way.

Dante might belong to the Gravediggers in body, but his heart and soul will always belong to the next job. The rest of the team doesn’t know about his alter ego because he made sure the information went missing from his file. So when the job he’s always waited for seems like a possibility, he sneaks out of the country like a thief in the night, only to run into the only woman who’s ever been able to match him in wit—and passion—for the job. Except they’re standing on opposite sides of the law—and only one of them can walk away with the prize.

Dante Malcolm is yet another reluctant member of the gravediggers team. His past is much more convoluted than some of the other members. He was once part of Britain’s Elite Intelligence Force and a thief. He played both parts for so long, dodging the bullets and potentially jail time while pretending to capture “himself”.

The time came when Liv Rothschild was finally able to get Simon Locke (aka Dante) but of course he slips through her fingers. He decides to jump off a building rather than get caught. He was witty and smart. While she knew she was good at her job, she couldn’t shake the feeling that he was still around.

This has to be my favorite of the series so far. I think I was wooed by Dante’s whole demeanor. He is so reminisce of a James Bond character. There is more than one side to him. He is more than a member of Britain’s M16 or the infamous international thief. He is a passionate and arrogant man as well.

The team doesn’t know about Dante Malcolm’s past. He makes sure to stay away from it and any details of his past. A new case is presented and Dante sneaks away but he runs into the one woman who can bring him down. The team is about the experience a shake-up as they become more involved in Dante’s life. They have to realize that while they didn’t ask to be a part of the gravediggers, they are and they all need to be upfront and honest with who they are.

Liv’s case to blow up a human trafficking ring leads her to a private island to work side by side with the man she could never catch. The two have to learn to trust one another. Liv’s painful past involving the disappearance of her sister adds a more realistic emotional aspect to the story.

There is a lot of drama, conflict, sexual tension and of course romance in this one. The author definitely found her way to perfectly infusing romance and suspense together in this addition. We slowly get to see some glimpses into the other secondary characters and even what is going on with past couples. I look forward to reading the next in the series.
