Temporarily partnered with Lt. Carl Grasso while Jason Santiago heals from their last case, Det. Ellie MacIntosh tackles yet another high-profile case. A spate of cop killings has terrorized the Milwaukee police department, and Chief Joe Metzger wants answers now. Theories abound as to motive: drug trafficking and mob connections come up first. On further investigation, though, the killings look to be more personally motivated, and loose-cannon Jason can't help but get involved. If that's not personal enough, Ellie's grandfather, Robert MacIntosh, finds an old skeleton on his land, and she suspects he's not telling her all he knows. Whether in Milwaukee or rural northern Wisconsin, Ellie, Carl, and Jason are in danger. Let the action begin. VERDICT Just try to put this one down! Watterson's third entry in her thriller series (after Charred) successfully blends action with puzzle, keeping three detectives going full speed. Her alternate narrative, set in the late 1950s, makes for a strong secondary plot. A great pick for Allison Brennan fans.
