To start with you really need to read Black Dust Mambo first, although there are enough facts about what happened previously, the characters aren't introduced well enough to skip the first book. I loved the beginning and really liked most of the book, but I was very disappointed in the solution. I liked the dog and the get-in-the-truck. I hadn't heard about a third book, but the story isn't finished. At least we didn't get a huge cliff-hanger like the one that ended the first book. Loved Jackson's story line. Hated that 8 hours of sex magic was the answer to fix everything.Very interesting characters.
