I loved this book because its not your everyday sob story, It gets into the gruesome line of work and of a boss who cares for his employees. Everyone has a story as its there decision whether or not to tell Tilly about it. But as time goes on she proves herself to the team and Heller. It shows the commitment of someone who wants something so bad, even mayhem follow then wherever they go.
This book is the first of seven, it continues on as the Heller Series.
