Moncrief and Katherine Burke, NYPD’S now infamous detectives,
are back in their third BookShot mystery. Once again, the
two follow leads and take a little time for themselves on
both sides of the ocean. In Patterson style, a cliff hanger
of sorts can be expected.
is a rich Frenchman who enjoys the pleasure in life. Burke
is a workaholic. Moncrief takes advantage of their current
cases, and treats Burke to a few expensive pleasures –
the Kentucky Derby, fine food, expensive liquor, massages,
make over, nice clothes and more. She accepts his generosity
only because it’s in the line a duty. As usual, these
two get mixed up in dual cases – one is about rich,
healthy women dropping dead, and the second is a personal
case involving longtime friends of Moncrief -- both are dangerous.
short story, I came away sufficiently entertained. I like
this series. Patterson and Dilallo offer up enough clues and
twists to keep us guessing. Both cases are easy to follow.
Expect some violence and language, but nothing compared to
the first in series, French Kiss. Once again, Jean
Brassard offers a smooth narration of the audio version that
keeps the storyline moving.
