To catch a villain sometimes you have to become one.


Bailey's Back! From the bestselling author of Jailbird.

Detective Constable Bailey Morgan is back doing what she does best – working undercover.


This time she has to infiltrate the inner circle of a notorious underworld family. Posing as a fellow villain, she is on a one-woman mission to bring the family to their knees.

But things are never that simple. Bailey finds that she is forced to confront shadowy wraiths from her past and will come face-to-face with a set of devastating revelations that will shatter her world and threaten her very existence.


With only herself to trust, Bailey is on her own and the stakes are higher than ever.

This is the second book in the DC Bailey Morgan series by Caro Savage.


This book takes place not long after the end of the previous book, Jailbird. One of her old school chums asks her superior Frank to place her undercover with a crime family after his source is killed by a car bomb. She is pulled in to uncover a gun running operation. 


I am surprised how different this book is than the previous one. This one can definitely be read as a standalone but it is nice to have the circumstances from the previous book to draw from when trying to figure things out.


Not everything is what it seems in this book and a lot of revelations are uncovered. Definitely a lot of surprises in this one. One bombshell I figured out ahead of time but the other only made sense the few minutes before it was unveiled.


This book was just perfection in its plotting and pace. I can’t wait for book three!


If you like police procedurals and British detective mysteries, definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.


I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) in return for an honest review. I thank NetGalley, the publisher and the author for allowing me to read this title.
