Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

Mason "Mace" Perry was a maverick cop on the D.C. police force until she was kidnapped and framed for a crime. She lost everything--her career, her liberty--and spent two years in prison. Now back on the outside, Mace is trying to rebuild her life and track down the people who set her up. But even with her police chief sister at her side, she has to work in the shadows: there's a vindictive US attorney on her tail and she's just looking for a reason to send her back behind bars . . .

Roy Kingman is a young lawyer, still getting used to his high-paid job at a law firm in Washington. When Roy discovers the dead body of a female partner at the firm, his fate becomes entangled with Mace's, as the two team up to investigate.

But as their enquiries gather pace, Roy and Mace soon find themselves in unexpected territory; drawn into both the private and public world of the nation's capital, as dark secrets begin to emerge. For what began as a fairly routine homicide investigation will quickly turn into something far more complex. And possibly lethal . . .

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2009-10-19)

Only true cops bleed blue. Baldacci's latest (after First Family) begins with ex-D. C. cop Mace Perry being released from jail after serving two years for a crime she did not knowingly commit. When her police chief sister unwillingly takes Mace to the crime scene of a dead lawyer found stuffed in a refrigerator, Mace begins to plot a path to reclaiming her job and reputation. Mace and her unofficial partner, lawyer Roy Kingman, track down clues, but the killers always seem to be one step ahead. As the duo close in on the mastermind behind this murder, they may end up as the next victims.

Verdict: Fans of Baldacci's Camel Club series will relish this novel-and especially its rebel-with-a-'cause heroine. Highly recommended for readers who love fast-paced thrillers and rooting for an underdog.

Review by Library Journal (2010-02-01)

Baldacci's (www.david-baldacci.com) 18th novel introduces Washington, DC, Chief of Police Beth Perry and her sister, Mace Perry, a former narcotics detective just out of prison for armed robbery who is determined to get her badge back and prove her worth as a detective. Though occasionally actor/writer Ron McLarty's (www.ronmclarty.com) narration makes it difficult to distinguish certain characters, this does not greatly detract from the excitement of Baldacci's story or inhibit comprehension. For Bal-dacci fans and the mystery/thriller collections of all libraries.

Book description

Mason "Mace" Perry was a firebrand cop on the D.C. police force until she was kidnapped and framed for a crime. She lost everything-her badge, her career, her freedom-and spent two years in prison. Now she's back on the outside and focused on one mission: to be a cop once more. Her only shot to be a true blue again is to solve a major case on her own, and prove she has the right to wear the uniform. But even with her police chief sister on her side, she has to work in the shadows: A vindictive U.S. attorney is looking for any reason to send Mace back behind bars. Then Roy Kingman enters her life.

Roy is a young lawyer who aided the poor until he took a high-paying job at a law firm in Washington. Mace and Roy meet after he discovers the dead body of a female partner at the firm. As they investigate the death, they start uncovering surprising secrets from both the private and public world of the nation's capital.

Soon, what began as a fairly routine homicide takes a terrifying and unexpected turn-into something complex, diabolical, and possibly lethal.
