Publisher's Summary

Sorry. The single word is written on a mirror. In front of it hangs a Minneapolis Internal Affairs cop. Was it suicide? Or a kinky act turned tragic?
Either way, it wasn't murder. At least not according to the powers that be. But veteran homicide detective Sam Kovac and his wisecracking, ambitious partner, Nikki Liska, think differently. Together they begin to dig at the too-neat edges of the young cop's death, uncovering one motive - and one suspect - after another. The cloud of suspicion falls not only on the city's elite, but over the very heart of the police department. Someone wants the case closed - quickly and forever. But even with their careers and their lives on the line, neither Kovac nor Liska will give up. As they unearth a connection between a two-month-old murder case and one that has been closed for twenty years, they find themselves chasing a killer who will stop at nothing to keep a dark and shattering secret.

Couldn't Hang With This One, Gave Up!!

I am super disappointed with this Tami Hoag novel. I quit after nearly four hours. The novel is over 14 hours long. I have read 3 or 4 of her novels so far and have loved! loved! loved! them. This one does not feel or sound like it was written by Tami Hoag. The wording was stilted and sounded forced maybe because there are a lot of clich├ęs used. What I heard was repetitious, the story seemed to be going in circles and not moving forward.... too much fluff... I know that there are many positive reviews but this one was not for me.

I did not like the narrator at all.. In addition to his lack of performance abilities and limited voice tones, his nasal voice sounded whinny and was very annoying.... Couldn't take that voice. I am sorry to see that this narrator is used for a lot of this author's novels..... oh well.....

Don't bother with this one

This must be the first book by Tami Hoag that I've listened to. I thought she was supposed to be good. The text is banal, generic, "canned" cop speak. The plot is based on stereotypical gay men and the narrow minded cops that work with them. She doesn't use vocabulary that describes what she wants to say. Literally, every other sentence is, "like a.....". Do people actually say,"let's blow this joint"??? I don't like the reader either. An east coast, tough guy wanna be. NOTHING like a midwest accent. I listen to a lot of marginal books to pass the time as I work on daily jobs or working out. I couldn't get past the first 6 chapters. Save yourself the time.
