    I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book... This is my first time reading anything written by Alex Gates. I really enjoyed the book; however, something was missing for me that I really can't put my finger on. Whatever it is sits in the back of my mind nagging me and that I can't put it into words. I hate that I can't describe it. I liked the plot as it was well written. I loved the characters though sometimes London's naiveté put me off some throughout the story only to redeem herself I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book...

I loved the characters though sometimes London's naiveté put me off some throughout the story only to redeem herself in other parts of the plot. She is a strong and emotional character that you can easily relate to. The political aspects of this story sickens me because I know this type of cover up goes on in the real world. There was lots of action and it was fast paced. I will be going back to read the other book.

I found myself awake for three quarters of the past two nights. What to me was amazing, I love thrillers and psychological thrillers. That was what truly amazed me, this was far from those that I read, yet equally enjoyable! I highly recommend her as an author!

    What a gripping read this was. Starting with an abandoned baby, found by Detective London McKenna, the plot took us on a tension filled journey to corruption in high places, via a secure facility, a judge's chambers, an unplanned dip in the harbour, sleazy motels, high society fundraisers and more. All the characters were believable, they were all too human, with failings and foibles. London in particular was scarred, physically and mentally. Her relationship with James was beautifully described a What a gripping read this was.

    Creepy, suspenseful, emotional, and thrilling! London is back and in the thick of things once again. I love a good thriller and when I can find a series as good as this one, I feel like I've hit the jackpot. Gates' gives us a gripping tale, full of suspense and action, and characters that are so real they practically leap off the page. The personal touches of London's past and her relationship with James add that little something that makes a reader feel like they know these people.

I can't wait to see what comes next for London McKenna!

    Formulaic Pablum The description of this book made it sound very interesting so I gave it a try. Sadly, the plot and main character were so predictable and formulaic I found myself skimming over the redundant angst-fests of London, the most disfunctional , naive and immature police woman character I’ve ever encountered. If you’re in the mood for something to read that doesn’t demand any more of your brain than eyes on the page give this book a try.

    Wow what a gripping and emotional tale and one that is being experienced daily in our society. It begins when a newborn is found in a store bathroom. The note that is left with her says, “I couldn't let them take her”. A detective determined to find the heartless mother who abandoned her baby had no idea where her investigation would lead. A tale of a corrupt judge and his elite friends. Human trafficking at it's worse. A gripping tale of life and death. A real page turner and so well written.

    Not a Wow, but a Good Read This book took me a while to get into it. And it wasn't until the last few chapters that I felt it was exciting enough that I just couldn't put it down. I like the main character and her boyfriend, they compliment each well. But why does all the men she work with have to be so 1970ish? The way the speak and think are extremely backward for this time, maybe one or two, but every character? I will try another one Alex's books, as I said, it is a good book.

    Don't miss this book! I rated this a 5 star because I couldn't put it down. So much action, such bravery, commitment to the truth, and caring for others. London is pretty messed up in her head after her horrible experience, but her heart is pure and she's tenacious in saving the innocent. Best of all, she beats the odds and well read the book and find out more. You'll truly enjoy it. Don't miss this book! I rated this a 5 star because I couldn't put it down.

    Riveting! I love the way this author writes, the depth of character development, the way the plot races to another surprising chapter. The entertainment value of "Hush Little Baby" can't be denied. That being said, I won't give perfect marks because this book needed a bit of proofreading - the difference between a great book and an attempt at a great book! Riveting!

    I absolutely love London McKenna! She is full of grit and absolutely fearless! I know this book is fiction however it gives possible scenarios on how widespread and deep this corruption of using children as sex slaves really are. This is fast moving and full of suspense and danger. I couldn't put it down until I finished. I'm looking forward to Alex Gates' next book on London. I absolutely love London McKenna!

    Honest Insights I chose five stars because this book was easy addictive reading. The main character, London, was strong and yet scared in the most realistic every day issues kind of way that kept her relatable. Who isn't afraid of love? Who doesn't experience fear of becoming a parent? This book wasn't a disappointment, I look forward to more readings from this Author.
