Publisher's Summary

Charged with misconduct in a high-profile solicitation of murder case, Scully is forced to resign from the LAPD or face criminal prosecution. His wife Alexa leaves him, seeking a divorce for his alleged dalliance with the accused in the case, a well-known Hollywood actress. His son, Chooch, horrified by these events, won't speak to him.In order to make a living, Scully seeks employment where he can: the Haven Park, California PD. Haven Park is a small, incorporated city near downtown LA, populated largely by illegal immigrants. The department is known for its corruption, in effect the Mayor's personal goon squad and collection agency. As Shane gets involved, he learns that things are rarely what they seem. Relentlessly harassed by an over-zealous FBI agent, the beautiful Ophelia Love, and under the constant, sometimes violent, extremely paranoid scrutiny of his new comrades-at-arms, Shane finds that Alex may be the only one who can get him out of this new mess alive. But is she willing to?

A fun read...

No one would guess that I am addicted to gritty police and legal thrillers, but I am. This was my first Shane Scully book and it was a fun read. No, it wasn't in the category of the Harry Bosch series, but I am familiar with the author's TV series so I expected as much. I was a bit confused in the beginning by the main character's role as a dirty cop but it was explained quickly. The plot of an entire police force being corrupt with no oversight was a stretch but I enjoyed the book nevertheless. I will definitely check out the other books in the Scully series.

Too Predictable

I've been a huge fan of the Shane Scully series and this new book continues the themes set forth from the earlier works but seems like a novel conceived and written with too much haste. It has its moments of suspense and action but doesn't evoke a since of accomplishment. It's good enough to keep me interested in the series but not enough to make me want to rush out to get the next, when and if it ever comes out.
