the hotter it gets.
Three years ago SFPD Homicide Investigator Kate Gillespie was in pursuit of a suspect who murdered a hooker in a sleazy motel, and she nearly lost her own life in the process. The shooter escaped into the San Francisco shadows and the trail went colder than the grave. Now Kate's appearance on a Bay Area "crime stoppers" TV show produces new leads that carry her back into the sordid world of drugs and prostitution and point her toward a local crime boss whose missing wife is possibly linked to multiple men and multiple murders. But when a dangerous knot of betrayals, secrets, and criminal cover-ups starts unraveling, Kate can only hope she'll be as lucky as she was on that black night at the Twin Palms Motel. Because the only way to the truth leads directly into the line of fire . . .

If you've read any of Robin's books, you need to run out and get this one. If you haven't read the the first three books in this series, you really need to start at the beginning and read them from first to last (Every Move She Makes, Fatal Truth, Deadly Legacy, then Cold Case) in order to get the full benefit of the nail-biting, hair-twisting, massive frustration the rest of us have endured. Not will Kate Gillespie and Mike Torrance survive, not will they figure out the case, not will they get the bad guys... but -- WILL THEY EVER, WELL, YOU KNOW!?!?!?!?!?! There's a great mystery in each one of Robin's books as a bonus. In COLD CASE, a three-year-old unsolved murder, in which Kate was shot, surfaces along with a bank robbery, another murder, more long-stemmed red roses, and a number of people in disguise. (not to mention that Kate has more than her share of Mocha Lattes!) So do Kate and Mike actually get together in this book? Does Robin finally give us the goods? Better pick it up and see. You'd hate to read the first three and then miss it when it finally happened, wouldn't you?
This is the fourth in a series involving Kate Gillespie and her partner, Rocky Markowski. Kate has been assigned to the Cold Case Files. They reopen a case from three years ago. A prostitute had been shot and killed at a sleazy place called the Twin Palms Motel. ................. An informant comes forward who seems to know more about the case than was released to the public. But just as they meet, a bank robbery occurs and the informant disappears. A body show up shortly afterward, but finding out the REAL identity is not an easy task. .................. *** Kate must put herself in the line of fire for answers in this mystery. In fact, she is involved in the mystery more than she knew at first. This mystery is not as good as the previous novels seemed to me, but it is well worth your time to check out. ***
