Internal Affairs cop Andy Fallon is found dead in his home, hanging naked in his bedroom. The word "sorry" is written on the mirror. Was it suicide? An accident? Detectives Sam Kovac and Nikki Liska interview friends and family. Andy had been depressed after coming out to his father. He was also looking into a case where a gay detective had been murdered. The department orders a quick autopsy and Andy's case is declared an accident, but instinct tells Kovac and Liska that there is more going on than meets the eye.
This is the second book in the Kovac/Liska series. It pulls you in from the beginning. Did Andy kill himself or was it a murder? Does his death have something to do with a 20-year-old case where a cop was murdered and another, Andy's own father, was left paralyzed? Or could it be Andy's current case where a gay detective was bludgeoned to death? We're given lots of clues, enough to actually figure out what happened to Andy, and what happened to his father 20 years ago. My rating: 4 Stars.
Love Tami Hoag's series books. Fun to read and hard to put down.
