Mark Sloan is trying to relax at his house when he hears gun shots. Immediately responding to the scene, he finds two dead bodies. Investigating further, he discovers that they've been dead longer then just a minute or two. Only once Steve arrives does he find out that this is the producer husband of action star Lacey McClure and an unknown woman. While she points her finger at the mob, Mark isn't so sure. He thinks the killer has the perfect alibi and sets out to break it in spite of the intense media spot light. Meanwhile, there's a new administrator at Community General, and he has set out to stop Mark's murder investigations, targeting Mark's friends. Can Mark solve this murder without ruining not only his career but also the careers of those he cares about?
Once again, Lee Goldberg has written a great mystery. Just when you think everything's wrapped up and you wonder what more could happen, he changes everything around. I was literally glued to the book for the last 50 pages. I couldn't wait to see how everything was going to come out. The characters continue to entertain, and I love the fact that Lee's continued from his days on the show by including Susan. She makes a great fifth to the group.
This novel is a continuation of the TV show in every way you could hope for. We've got the characters we know and love in some excellent mystery plots. If you were at all a fan of the show, don't hesitate. And if you aren't familiar with the show but love a good mystery, pick these up as well. You won't be disappointed.
