Overview

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.

A great short story from one of the best romantic suspense authors. Always nice to see characters from previous stories in the Brennanverse pop up in supporting roles. Often in short stories\novellas the romance feels rushed, but these two had a history that made it believable.

To the children playing kittycat games here, know that i have reported it to bn and i hope they ban you. This is a book review site, a place for serious book reviews, not a roleplaying web site. If u want to play your silly games, go to fb, my space or a web site for that, just go away.

If you like crime and long investigations, i reccomend thiis read to you. But it is at times hard to follow as the story jumps from one thing to another. Also uses language for i would say 14+ ages. I for one enjoyed this story but faded during some sections.
