Overview

A brutal murder. A rash of sophisticated burglaries. A serial rapist.

Little does veteran LAPD Detective Maddie Divine and her new partner, Jade Donovan, realize that a single thread tie the crimes together. But as their investigation digs deeper and the cases begin to unravel, they threaten to expose one of Maddie’s darkest secrets and force her to confront a truth she’s tried desperately to bury.

Harley Elliot: The sleazy broken-down owner of a trendy pizzaria pays his employees well above minimum wage. What’s in it for him, and if he gets caught, will he go to jail?

The Saunders Brothers:
Blake - A cunning manipulator who knows he’s devised the perfect crime.
Logan – The hot-tempered middle brother whose careless misadventure made him a perfect target.
Jeremy – The peacekeeper for his older brothers and the calculating voice of reason in their dysfunctional trio.

Shelbie Saunders: The adopted little sister of the wild Saunder’s boys is trying to find her place in the family as she blossoms into a young woman. Trying to keep up with her new brothers is her first mistake.

Zak Murdock: The brawny sergeant of police has a troubling history with Maddie’s partner, Jade. When he’s assigned to detectives, he puts Maddie and Jade in his sights.

Walt Lamb: The hard-working bartender at Harley’s pizzaria keeps a low profile to protect his ‘side job,’ yet he misses nothing.

Meet the Author

Kathy Bennett is no stranger to murder and mayhem. She served twenty-nine years with the Los Angeles Police Department - eight as a civilian employee and twenty-one years as a sworn police officer. While most of her career was spent in a patrol car, she’s also been a Firearms Instructor at the LAPD Academy, a crime analyst in the “War Room”, a Field Training Officer, a Senior Lead Officer, and worked undercover in various assignments. Kathy was honored to be named Officer of the Year in 1997.

Kathy's debut novel, A Dozen Deadly Roses, became a bestselling e-book at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. A Deadly Blessing also became a bestselling e-book at both retailers, and was selected as one of Barnes and Noble's Best Nook Book Originals for 2012. A Deadly Blessing is the first book in a series featuring LAPD Detective Maddie Divine. Law enforcement personnel laud Kathy's authentic stories of crime and suspense for 'getting it right.'

    Loved it!  Kathy's first book, "A Dozen Deadly Roses"

    Loved it!  Kathy's first book, "A Dozen Deadly Roses" was fantastic, and "A Deadly Blessing" excellent!  "A Deadly Justice" is as good or better and while they are not a series they do follow some of the wonderfully built characters introduced or developed in earlier.books, I'm about to reread the first two and looking forward to Kathy's next book!

    I liked the story and writer's style. You can tell she was a cop because the plot seems real to me. I'll read the rest of her books now.

    This author had become one of my favorites since reading her first book. I loved that the characters from the first two books were partnered up in this one. Easy read, while there were a few

    Write faster!

    As usual I am disappointed I have to wait for the next book to come out. There are perfect characters that can be eaisly related to because of their 'real life situations'. From the working mom, to the nosey neighbors there is enough to get you hooked wanting more. Kathy Bennett is great at adding police procedure without giving too much or not enough detail. Her ability to wrap up all the plotlines into a nice neat package is amazing.

    If you like Wambaugh you will love Kathy Bennett...

    Suspenseful

    Kept you in suspense througout the book because it was a crime story that tied burglaries with a serial rapist. And it got you to thinking which character was the serial rapist. Kathy Bennett is a great writer who keeps your full attention & you don't want to stop reading this book.

    Maddie Divine has been through hell and is now back on the stree

    Maddie Divine has been through hell and is now back on the street with her new partner Jade Donovan. They've been moved to a new precinct as part of the new chief's reorganization plan and assigned to burglary. There have been a string of burglaries in the upper class neighborhoods, with high end merchandise taken, and they are no closer to being solved than they were right after they occurred. There's also a serial rapist operating. And then there's a murder. Just business as usual for LAPD. Cash McCool is working the homicide and rapes (with the help of a task force).

    I really liked this book, and the other books written by Kathy Bennett. They keep me on the edge of my seat with plenty of suspense and tension. I'm definitely looking forward to the next book in this series.

    Kathy Bennett does it again!!

    I could not wait to begin reading and once I started, could not put it down! The characters blend together, are realistic, with true emotions and empathy. It is one of those rare novels, where late at night, you tell yourself, 'I'll read just one more chapter'.....and it always turns into, 'well, one more'!

    Great story, that keeps building with twists and turns. A definite MUST READ!!
