The murder of a cop—a decade old. A stripper with a secret. A cop whose marriage hangs by a thread investigating both. What could go wrong?
LAPD Officer Roy Buckner struggles with a new assignment in the Robbery-Homicide Division Cold-Case Unit, while stepping up as mom and dad to his toddler son.
Roy's wife, Amber, just graduated from the LAPD academy and her troubled probationary period leaves her with little time to be concerned about her homelife or marriage—which is hanging by a thread.
As Roy and his new female partner search for clues to a cold-case cop killing, things heat up as they uncover an old trail of deadly secrets, while battling their own individual pain.
Meanwhile, Amber's first big arrest results in a whole new mystery and investigation centered around a stripper's shame. As the decade-old case unravels, the shocking revelations may end everyone's career—if not their lives.
Damaged Goods is the second book in Kathy Bennett's, Buckner Police Procedural Thriller Trilogy. If you like authentic crime told in an arresting story, you can't go wrong reading this face-paced, riveting, drama told by an award-winning retired LAPD officer.
