Nobody will get hurt Dawn and Reese Spencer just can't get ahead. Between her desperate desire to start a family and his gambling debts, they barely keep afloat, even with well-paying Norfolk International port jobs. But their calculating co-worker has the perfect plan- help him smuggle containers of human cargo past U.S. Customs. Nobody will know For Dawn, risking the innocent lives of undocumented immigrants is unthinkable. But Reese persuades her that no one will get hurt. And once things proceed without a hitch and a fortune starts rolling in, the Spencers are sure their dreams are about to come true . . . Nobody will live to tell Until several immigrants turn up dead on arrival. Until Reese bets more than he can ever repay. Now the Feds and cold-blooded loan sharks are closing in . . . as the real brains behind the operation start killing off loose ends . . . Praise for Kiki Swinson "A well-crafted plot. Pitch-perfect dialogue, juicy sexual trysts, cold-blooded betrayal, and ruthless violence mark this suspenseful fast-moving tale that is topped off by a shocking epilogue." -Library Journal on The Score (Starred Review) "The suspense never stops in this edgy, violent thriller. Readers will be riveted and ready for more." -Booklist on The Mark… (more)

Fans of Kiki Swinson will likely hate this review. I’ve never read any of her other works but I did not enjoy this book. I couldn’t connect with any of the characters. They were either naive, insecure, or just downright dumb. To be fair, I probably would have enjoyed this book when I was in my 20s and urban lit was really hitting the scene. As a middle-aged mother of 2 young black boys, I really struggled with Dawn and Reese’s decisions and actions. As for the writing, the word choice felt odd and out of place. This was a NetGalley advanced reader’s copy. ( )
