Genre of book
This mystery starts in a nightclub called Purgatory. An off-duty policeman working as a bartender is brutally slain. Who is the nightclub owned by? None other than Dallas' husband Roarke.
The investigation leads toward Max Ricker, an old colleague of Roarke before he turned 'legitimate'. Another policeman is killed and the investigation heats up. Police corruption and revenge lead Dallas into a case which has her walking a tightrope between other police annoyed with her for breaking the blue code and a cop bent upon murderous revenge.
Another great book in the series. The steam between Roarke and Dallas lifts off the pages. The humour between Peabody and McNab is wonderful but the best part of all is the interaction between Dallas and Mira. Looking forward to the next in the series.
First Line: "She stood in Purgatory and studied death."
