When travel writer Lily Moore joins a group of journalists for an all-expenses-paid press junket to Acapulco, Mexico, she expects sun, sand, and margaritas. Instead, she finds that the Mexican city, once the playground of Hollywood stars, is a place of faded glamour and rising crime. Even the luxurious Hotel Cern̤, isolated from the rest of the town, seems disturbing to her, with its grand, empty rooms, ever-watchful staff, and armed guards patrolling the grounds. Only after Lily tries--and fails--to leave the Hotel Cern̤ does she discover the truth: the journalists are prisoners in a gilded cage. Too late, Lily realizes that she has been maneuvered into the role of bait in a vicious, vengeful plot. Faced with unthinkable choices, Lily must summon all her strength to survive, confront the past she's still running from, and save other lives.

A Lily Moore mystery is always a fun read with its creepy atmosphere and characters with lots of secret agendas. This book is pretty good, but don't start here, you need to read the first two in the series (The Damage Done, and The Next One to Fall) to actually know what she is talking about when she refers to other people who are not on site in the hotel in Acapulco and who were major characters in her first two books. All in all, I loved this book and look forward to future Lily Moore mysteries.

Lily Moore is back again, this time invited to Acapulco by a travel PR agent to write up the area. But Lily's first encounter besides the hotel staff is another travel writer, Skye McDermott, who is very unhappy and not like the Skye Lily is used to. In the middle of a discussion Skye excuses herself and never returns, leaving Lily with her purse and all its contents.
The next thing Lily discovers is the hotel has changed ownership, a fact that would have changed her mind about coming on the trip had she known. As Lily starts to question Skye's disappearance and the hotel's lack of guests, she gets more and more worried, and not just for Skye.
Even if she makes it out of Acapulco, will she be safe? There seems to be a lot at stake here and Lily is a good investigator, but she doesn't always make the right choices of who to trust.
A good plot with a fast pace that will keep you reading.

Cartoonishly evil characters, a protagonist who was so unbelievably trusting that I wanted to scream at her constantly, and an excruciatingly slow pace made for a less than stellar read. There were some good twists at the end but these don’t make up for the rest of the book. Pick up Davidson’s first title, “The Damage Done”, instead.

Good, but; Davidson was too repetitious in the heart of the story. She told us in every different way how the characters and pieces fitted together.
By the time I got to the quite good ending my attention had faded away.
