Product Description

Product Description

Keep your friends close …

When the long-time bartender at Dooley’s Pub is murdered, the police believe a violent gang of thieves is responsible. But Shauna Murphy, Dooley’s fiery granddaughter, thinks Mack’s killer is someone she knows. In addition to stealing money, the thieves stole her grandfather’s collection of autographed baseballs, leaving behind the only forgery. The lead detective doesn’t take her seriously, and Shauna reluctantly turns to long-time family friend, Detective Sam Garcia—the man who once broke her heart. But Sam has another murder to solve: the death of a young woman who was strangled and dumped in the river.

… and your enemies closer

As Sam digs deeper into his own investigation, he suspects that his case is linked to Mack’s murder. After an attack on Shauna leaves her shaken and angry, Sam vows to protect her. But he can’t defend her against an unknown threat. As time runs out with no one to trust, Sam and Shauna must work together to catch a ruthless killer before they both end up dead and buried.

3.0 out of 5 stars good thriller 8 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
the book was generally a good fast paced thriller which I enjoyed reading;the plot was predictable and there was little suspense relating to the actual murder: the main tension exists from the on off love story.

I have all Brenda's books in paperback but this the first one of hers that I have in Kindle. P,refer printed book as it is easier than having it on my PC, you can take a book to bed but not so easy with PC.

5.0 out of 5 stars Author returns to her roots 14 Aug 2012
By Jerrie - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I've read all of Allison Brennan's books and enjoyed them all. Honestly, I was thrilled to read she had a new romantic suspense out. Ms. Brennan packed a ton of emotion, tension, and mystery in this novella. It's a quick and rewarding read.

A little bit on the lusty side and quite graphic with the love making. Sometimes a few details should be left to our imagination.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining 7 Aug 2012
By Rhonda - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a fast-paced romantic suspense. I loved Shauna's feisty spirit. The characters were well-developed. And while Shauna going undercover was a little far-fetched (in my opinion) it worked. I enjoy Brennan's writing and while this was not my favorite book of hers it was an entertaining and enjoyable read. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys romantic suspense.

Police procedure is pretty accurate considering this is a composite police department. Good characters and interesting plot line. I am an ex-cop and I really enjoy this series.

I enjoyed this book! Being originally from Seattle and living in Sacramento were this book took place for the past 30 years it was fun knowing where ever they were going and doing! It was an outstanding murder crime mystery and was to the last few pages before I figured it out!

This is my first Allison Brennan Novel and I look forward to reading more!
