Those who enjoy reading New York City based police dramas are certain to enjoy this title as are those who watch TV series like Blue Bloods or East New York. The protagonist of this novel, Gemma, is a detective and hostage negotiator. She ends up with a high stakes situation when hostages are taken at City Hall. Readers will hope for her successful resolution of a fraught situation.
This book offers the reader a tight plot and also an entry into Gemma’s world. As in Blue Bloods, many of her relatives are also police officers. I enjoyed meeting them and look forward to spending time with them in other books.
Those who like a story with action and good characters will want to give this title a look.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Kensington Books for this title. All opinions are my own.
