Detective Eve Dallas and her partner, Peabody, are following up on a senseless crime – an elderly grocery owner killed by three stoned punks for nothing more than kicks and snacks. This is Peabody’s first case as primary detective – good thing she learned from the master. But Peabody soon stumbles upon a trickier situation. After a hard workout, she’s all alone in the locker room when the gym door clatters open; and – while she’s hiding inside a shower stall trying not to make a sound – she overhears two fellow officers, Garnet and Oberman, arguing. It doesn’t take long to realize they’re both crooked – guilty not just of corruption but of murder. Now Peabody, Eve and Eve’s husband, Roarke, are trying to get the hard evidence they need to being the dirty cops down – knowing all the while that the two are willing to kill to keep their secret.

Overall I really enjoyed this novel, although it did take me a little bit more time than I would have liked to get through it. The main characters Roarke, Peabody and Eve were extremely intriguing and left me wanting to get to know them even more than just what was between the covers of the novel. Robb, drops little tidbits in the novel about their past, but not enough to reveal it totally to the reader, only enough for them to know that a certain character could have had a rocky past and that is what leads them to make certain judgement now. Hopefully I’ll have the same thoughts about the other books in the series.
