First came a terrorist attack. Then the mutations--and Fey who had lived in harmony with humans turned deadly. Now most people hide behind iron gates. But those who are immune--and those with enough courage--can venture out into the Louisiana Delta . . . and a nightmare world of magic. NO GOOD DEED GOES UNPUNISHED Annabelle Lee, a Fairy Containment and Control agent with immunity to fairy venom, is once again called upon to help solve a murder deep in the bayou. But this one's off the books. Her ex-lover, Hitch, needs her help searching for a secret chemical weapons lab and an FBI mole providing it with human lab rats.Helping Hitch means certain interpersonal disaster with her estranged boyfriend, but Annabelle knows what it feels like to be a lab rat. Her new fairy-attack-induced paranormal abilities seem to have few negative side effects, but would that change if she stopped injecting herself with the mystery drug delivered to her by the even more mysterious--not to mention ridiculously attractive--Tucker? A man who can turn invisible at will, and who makes no bones about how dead she'll be if she reveals his secrets?As the murder investigation progresses, Annabelle quickly learns Tucker isn't the only one with secrets, and that the only things that cut deeper than a friend's deception are the lies we tell ourselves.

3.5 stars So much happened in this book. I felt lost at times not sure who was bad and who Annabelle could trust. It was confusing. Lots of drama. But overall it was entertaining and I did enjoying reading about Annabelle and the situations she gets stuck in.
In all honesty, this book deserves 1.5 stars. Barely. But I'm felling generous today so 2 stars it is. Where to start? It feels like Ms Jay wasn't even trying, like she didn't care about the characters and the series anymore. Almost like she phoned it in, drunk. There are so many typos it got...
I am one of those people who judges a story based on how I feel when it's over. Yes, I value the journey, but if I'm not satisfied with the destination, the whole thing is damn near ruined. This book is a perfect example of a story destroyed by an unsatisfactory conclusion. I really enjoyed it. I...
The little I read is awesome but I want to read other books, so I´m sorry Annabelle I really really like you but I´ll put you on hold for just a couple of weeks
