The Dime by Kathleen Kent

Brooklyn's toughest female detective takes on Dallas—and neither is ready for the fight.

Dallas, Texas is not for the faint of heart. Good thing for Betty Rhyzyk she's from a family of take-no-prisoners Brooklyn police detectives. But her Big Apple wisdom will only get her so far when she relocates to The Big D, where Mexican drug cartels and cult leaders, deadbeat skells and society wives all battle for sunbaked turf.

Betty is as tough as the best of them, but she's deeply shaken when her first investigation goes sideways. Battling a group of unruly subordinates, a persistent stalker, a formidable criminal organization, and an unsupportive girlfriend, the unbreakable Detective Betty Rhyzyk may be reaching her limit.

Combining the colorful pyrotechnics of Breaking Bad with the best of the gritty crime genre, The Dime is Kathleen Kent's brilliant mystery debut and the launch of a sensational new series.

I really like THE DIME by Kathleen Kent. I hope that this is the beginning of a long and intriguing series. Det.Rhyzyk, our protagonist is a transplanted New Yorker who now works narcotics for the Dallas P.D. If that is not difficult enough, what make matters more challenging she is also a lesbian. Ordinarily that would not be problematic, but sexual orientation on the job is an issue. Our hero is involved in a variety of drug busts, dealing with your typical low-life scum and perps. Bodies start to accumulate when Det. Rhyzyk and her squad discover a meth dealing cult. THE DIME is a well-written captivating police procedural. I highly recommend that you read this novel. After finishing, you will want another serving of this entertaining and involving story.

Wow, from the first chapter I was along for a fast ride with Detective Betty Rhyzyk. Each time I thought there were no more surprises, Kathleen Kent masterfully twisted the plot just a bit more, until I gave up trying to predict what was going to happen next. When I reached the final page I was still wanting more! Cannot wait to see the next book in this series!

It was very well written with interesting characters but the end plot was kind of vapid.
