Great book for listening! Kept my attention to the end.
Lieutenant Lindsay Boxer is called away from a get-together with her friends Claire and Cindy to follow-up on a crime-scene investigation. Lindsay and her partner Warren Jacobi trail a stolen black Mercedes, seen at two other crime scenes. Their apprehension of the young suspects goes horribly wrong. Lindsay and her partner are shot; in self-defense Lindsay kills Sara Cabot and maims her younger brother. Lindsay goes over and over in her mind what happened. She is assured that she did nothing wrong but then the Cabot family hires a hotshot lawyer and sues Lindsay for $150 million in damages. Lindsay is forced to take time off from the job and goes to her sister's house in Half-Moon Bay to recover. Lindsay's lover Joe Morelli, who works for the Department of Homeland Security, drops in on her and her beloved dog Martha from time to time. Lindsay buys an old Pontiac Bonneville from the local garage to put back together on her time off. She is amused by her sister's family pet pig. Lindsay even makes friends with her neighbors, Carolee and her daughter Ali from down the street. Lindsay is quite aware of her trial coming up but cannot help herself by getting involved in a local string of unsolved murders. Fortunately for Lindsay, the jury in her trial decides in her favor. Before heading back to work for the SFPD, she heads back to Half-Moon Bay to finish what she started. Lots of twists and turns at the end as the multiple suspects are discovered. Lindsay Boxer is a strong, intelligent cop who is not afraid to show her vulnerable side to the ones she loves. A terrific addition to a great series!
This is very good. Kept me guessing to the end.
