Had an unexpected ending. Was a hard but a compulsive read. The characters showed great growth throughout the book. The storyline was tidy and easy to follow for the most part. Well written.

They thought they were above the law-she was going to prove them wrong.

A terrifying childhood abduction has left California copy Rachel Simmons with a burning desire to see the law upheld. And nothing will stand in her way--not even the abuse the authority she witnesses at the hands of a fellow officer. Now Rachel has violated the most sacred law within their ranks--the blue code of silence.

But it isn't until she is framed for attempted murder and the lives of her children are threatened that she realizes she can trust no one - not even the ambitious D.A. who seems to offer her a way out.

For Rachel Simmons, justice has become the most dangerous ideal of all...

I read this book from start to finish in one day. I stayed up late to finish this page-turner. This is a stand-alone novel and in my opinion the best novel I've read by Rosenberg. The novel revolves around a single mother that becomes a police officer in order to provide for her children. She is placed on the lightly-manned night shift with a rogue cop and his clique of officers.
A good read that is rated a solid 4 on both PaperBackSwap and GoodReads.

This is a short audio book that is fast paced. Great for a short trip-2 cassettes 3 hours only.
