This is a first in a series, also the first fiction by an author known for non-fiction. It's an excellent police procedural with a few well-placed red herrings. The lead character is complex and compelling, and it will be interesting to watch her development through later books. I had no idea what to expect from this book, but found it a delightful surprise; I'll now be looking for the second in the series.

A great mystery/thriller debut! The novel starts with a harrowing opening of a drug deal gone horribly wrong that leads police to murdered prostitutes. The action in the book is non-stop! I will definitely look for other books by this author.

The story was good but it was very wordy. I found myself skipping over many paragraphs trying to get to the juicy parts. I struggled through it because I wanted to find out how it ended. Cannot wait to see how Mr. Walters does as he goes on.
