About the Book:

Being extorted because of an adult indiscretion
Attempting to cover up her perilous life

Hoping they’ll free her from the blackmail bonds

Leading The Divine Devils down a lethal road they may not survive
Hunter Divine and his team
Willing to move heaven and hell to get results!



My Thoughts:

Author R. Weir hits another home run with Fallen Star, the second book in the Devine Devils series that features Hunter Devine as the main character. Hunter is a former U.S. Marshall turned P.I., and he is tough as nails. If you read between the lines, you can see that he also has a conscience. I couldn’t ask for anything more in a main character for this genre.

Fallen Star features a Hollywood star that has fallen out of grace. Megan Getz is a white-hot mess who lands herself in the middle of a blackmail scam and still cannot lay low. Hunter must love a challenge to take on this case! When Hunter and his team go deep into this case, they’re not only trying to find Megan’s blackmailer but also a solution to the case that ended Hunter’s career.

I appreciate that the characters are realistic and that the situations are gritty. The world-building is incredible. The plot pace is intense! While I liked the author’s “cleaner” lead character and storytelling in the Jarvis Mann series, I do appreciate Mr. Weir’s storytelling chops. It takes talent to have that breadth of characters and situations. The case Megan Getz gets Hunter involved in is dramatic and thrilling. I would be shocked to hear that any reader is able to not read this book in one sitting!


About the Author: Award-winning Author R Weir lives in the Mile-High City with his family, where the Rocky Mountain High isn’t always achieved with an herbal substance. When not glued to the computer, he relaxes by enjoying the outdoors and traveling in his motorhome. His writing delves into genres with gritty investigators exploring mystery, crime, suspense, and thrills, with involved plots and unexpected twists. Featuring former US Marshal Hunter Divine, a dire, determined man searching for salvation in his broken life. While private eye Jarvis Mann is tough and snarky, with as many faults as virtues. Characters exhibiting traces of his sense of humor, though he’s not nearly as tough and fearless. Though no evil stands a chance against his written word!
