Publisher's Summary

Twelve people have been shot at point-blank range and left to rot in the desert sun. It’s Sophia St. Claire’s job to do something about it. She’s Bordertown, Arizona’s new chief of police - and she’s out of her depth. Help arrives in the form of Department 6 hired gun Roderick Guerrero. As far as Sophia’s concerned, his involvement only makes things worse. Maybe he’s managed to turn his life around. And maybe he’s a good investigator. But as the bastard son of a wealthy local rancher, he has a history he can’t get past. A history that includes her. Rod refuses to leave town until the killer is caught. He’s not worried about the danger posed by some vigilante. It’s Sophia who threatens him. Because he’s used to risking his life - but his heart is another story.

Sophia is Bordertown’s police chief. While she is good at what she does, because of her age she doesn’t have the total confidence of the town council in her ability to do her job. It doesn’t help that she is being set up by a former deputy to make her look incompetent because he desires her job. Next problem; former bad boy, bastard son and brother, who has made good, arrives and shows her clues she has missed in the case. Why is he here? Who brought him here? And Why? This story had some great twists and turns like the previous story, there are elements you just don’t see coming till they smack you in the face.
While this is supposed to be a series this story can stand on its own, there is no involvement of previous characters.
Cris did a fine job with the narration.

Take a chance many twists and turns!

This is a series that is completely different from the author's typical sweet but quirky love romances set in small towns that build upon each other. Department 6 is one you'll either love or leave if you're one of her usual readers who find this. Is it good? Yes! However.... it isn't really a romance. Most of her books would absolutely be categorized as a romance - this one has a couple in it but unlike the others that is not the point. The point is the world around them - I love the fact that the female lead in this one is an incredibly strong woman - a leader in her own right. She's the police chief - it isn't easy but by God you see her strength through that. Each of the main characters really bring something to the story. The elements in it really do cause major turning points in the book and in their lives. People today could even relate to many of the sentiments relating to illegal crossings of the border.

The narrator did a really good job bringing the author's words to life. You wouldn't get as many of the highs and lows reading from paper as you do with a good narrator. Its like reading a play versus seeing one. Can you read a story? Absolutely! However a good narrator can give that world an additional depth that many times you may miss just reading it on the page.
