Washington, D.C., Metro Police Detective Sergeant Sam Holland needs a big win to salvage her career—and her confidence—after a disastrous investigation. The perfect opportunity arises when Senator John O’Connor is found brutally murdered in his bed, and Sam is assigned to the case. Matters get complicated when Sam has to team up with Nick Cappuano, O’Connor’s friend and chief of staff…and the man Sam had a memorable one-night stand with years earlier. Their sexual chemistry still sizzles, and Sam has to fight to stay focused on the case. Sleeping with a material witness is another mistake she can’t afford—especially when the bodies keep piling up.
What an incredible portrayal of Metro Police in D.C. The story follows the life of Senator John O’Connor and how he died what he was like as a man, and a relationship between Nick Cappuano and Sam Holland a local cop. After a fling years ago circumstances kept them apart namely Sam’s ex husband Peter. Senator O’Connor had many deep and hidden secrets everything from sex to an illegitimate child. There is no short list of suspects, but the killer really takes the case in this book. I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Can’t wait to read the next one!
