Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

Washington, D.C. is the murder capital of the United States and D.C. Metro Homicide is one of the busiest departments in the country. When a friend of the First Lady is brutally murdered, the detective team of Steve Ciminelli and Linda Hannigan are ordered to solve the case—without stepping on any powerful toes—easier said than done. They've been partners for a long time and never allowed their personal attraction to affect their work—until now.

The plot is well constructed, but the text is tedious - the drawn out sex scenes add nothing to the plot, and would be more effective if they were shortened, or simply hinted at. The dialogue is ruined by the author's attempt to find synonyms for "said": it looks like he has gone through a thesaurus to find them - and it isn't necessary to write "she said", "he remarked", she stated" , "he opined" at the end of each piece of dialogue. Leave some of them out, and put some of them before the dialogue, not always after The author's style spoiled the book for me..

It is keeping the reader interested throught the whole book and lives a hint for the next book

Steamy sex, hardboiled dialog and the White House in a torrid murder kept me reading late.
