I really think this book might be under appreciated. If you've read the books from the beginning, you can see a definite progression in all the characters and this one just adds another layer to Eve and crew. I like that I can see what she's like as a boss and might be like when she finally makes Captain. She and the author have grown with the series. While I enjoy all that is Eve, I'm very glad she's moved more and more away from dwelling on her childhood. I can't wait to see where the next book goes.
