5 Angels for OUT OF HELL

The Devane Files Book One: Out of Hell
Author: Denysé Bridger
ISBN: 1-59578-268-0
Available from: Liquid Silver Books
5 Angels

Haunted by the Ripper murders, Michael Devane now faces another gruesome murder. It is no secret that he uses opium to help with his visions that help him solve some of his toughest cases. Unfortunately, his visions also cause him pain and anguish. Hoping to solve the murder of Robert Bradshaw, Michael questions Bethany Davenshire-Bradshaw for some clues. However, he soon realizes that there is more to Bethany than meets the eye, and the attraction between the two is making the case harder to solve. Not to mention the fact that one of his visions shows Bethany in the room at the time of the murder. Can he prove she is innocent and have her for his own?

This story brings us into a time when gruesome murders were not an everyday occurrence. Michael Devane’s personality reflects that of a cop who has dealt with pain, and Ms. Bridger does an excellent job in describing his emotions and the turmoil he feels. There were parts of the book that made you look over your shoulder to make sure there wasn’t anyone behind you. The attraction between the main characters is immediate, and one can’t help but hope for Bethany’s innocence in the murder of her husband. The secondary characters also brought life to the story blending into the plot line with ease. Out of Hell is a different look into the times of the Ripper murders.
