Action-packed police thriller from beginning to end. This book was a recent mystery choice by Suzanne Beecher in the EmailBookClub.com. I will be looking for more in this series.
A man is impersonating an officer. His neighbors find out his garage is full of weapons and call ATF. An officer is killed. The man is killed in a standoff. Was it suicide by officer? Scully must find out. Very good book.
Shane and Alexa Scully are back in action again, this time staying pretty much on home turf but up against the toughest assignment either of them have ever had. Friend and fellow officer from the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department, Emo Rojas is brutally gunned down routinely serving a warrant. However, the Sheriff's department took the warrant from the Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms federal unit. Emo is dead in the "Vertical Coffin", police slang for a doorway, and chaos runs rampant as Shane arrives on the scene.
Good diverting reading. Cannell is a favorite author and seldom fails to entertain.
One of the best of Cannell's books.
Once started, it's hard to put down. Another success in the Shane Scully series.
Another great read by Cannell. I typically lose sleep when reading a Scully novel
LAPD Det. Shane Scully is tasked with investigating what went horribly wrong during the serving of a warrant by the LASD to Vincent Smiley, someone known to dislike cops. His investigation into Smiley's alleged death brings threatening phone calls, strained friendships and a twist that no one sees coming. If you enjoyed Stephen J. Cannell's television writing, you will love his Shane Scully books.
