Synopsis: INSATIABLE is the third novel in Emily Kimelman's best selling, award winning Sydney Rye Series of dark murder mysteries. This series feature a strong female protagonist and her canine best friend. It is recommended for the 18+ who enjoy some violence, don't mind dirty language, and are up for a dash of sex. Not to mention an awesome, rollicking good mystery!

INSATIABLE begins with private detective Sydney Rye living a simple, disciplined life in London, but when a dangerous man from her past calls, Rye finds she cannot turn him away. Robert Maxim explains that the daughter of a powerful friend has gone missing and he wants Rye to find her. In exchange he offers her something she had given up hope of ever having; freedom from her past.

With her dog, Blue, at her side, Rye meets up with her new partner, a handsome man she's not sure she can trust. Heading for Mexico City, they go undercover, posing as husband and wife. After meeting with the bereaved parents, Rye starts to sense that there is more going on than just a missing girl. But it isn't until they arrive in the Yucatan Peninsula, hot on the girl's trail in Paradise, that all hell breaks loose. Sydney has to reach out for help from old friends and deal with the consequences of her past, if she's going to find the girl and keep them all alive.

Review: Sydney Rye is enjoying a relatively quiet time with Carlos in London when she get a call from Bobby Maxim. Bobby’s firm set Joy up as Sydney and as such, Bobby’s calling in his marker. He’s sending her to Mexico City along with his operative, Blane Nichols, to find a missing girl. Not just any missing girl, but Ana Maria Hernandez Vargas, the daughter of two pretty powerful and wealthy people. Sydney quickly learns things aren’t as clean-cut as they seem as she’s forced to call on friends and strangers for support. Can Sydney find the girl and the truth before it’s too late for herself and the others?

‘Insatiable’ is the 3rd book in the Sydney Rye series and they keep getting better! The character development and the vivid descriptions of the locales draw readers in quickly to the action. I do believe it is best to read the first two books in this series prior to ‘Insatiable’, as the books are the ongoing events in Sydney’s life. I think this is the book where Sydney truly accepts her old life is over and sheds it as she’s neck deep in the situation she’s thrown into. I don’t want to get into too much detail for fear of spoiling the shocking twists Ms. Kimelman has given Sydney. I’m very impressed with the growth of both the author and Sydney throughout this series!
