Reviews

This promising first in a new series from bestseller Baldacci (First Family) introduces Beth Perry, chief of the District of Columbia's Metropolitan Police, and Beth's younger sister, Mace Perry, a former police officer dubbed "the Patty Hearst of the twenty-first century" after she was seized by bandits, drugged and taken along on a series of armed robberies around Washington. Mace, who's just getting out of prison after serving a two-year sentence, is willing to risk everything to clear her name and reclaim her life as a cop by cracking a big case on her own. The rape-murder of a powerful lawyer as well as the killing of a prominent U.S. attorney provide Mace an opportunity to vindicate herself. While Baldacci draws his characters in bright primary colors, and some of the action reaches comic book proportions, he delivers his usual intricate plotting and sets the stage nicely for highly competent Beth and impulsive, streetwise Mace to take on more bad guys.

Only true cops bleed blue. Baldacci's latest (after First Family) begins with ex-D.C. cop Mace Perry being released from jail after serving two years for a crime she did not knowingly commit. When her police chief sister unwillingly takes Mace to the crime scene of a dead lawyer found stuffed in a refrigerator, Mace begins to plot a path to reclaiming her job and reputation. Mace and her unofficial partner, lawyer Roy Kingman, track down clues, but the killers always seem to be one step ahead. As the duo close in on the mastermind behind this murder, they may end up as the next victims. Verdict Fans of Baldacci's Camel Club series will relish this novel-and especially its rebel-with-a-cause heroine. Highly recommended for readers who love fast-paced thrillers and rooting for an underdog. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 7/09.]-Susan O. Moritz, Montgomery Cty.
