Deputy Eve Ronin has been transferred to homicide in the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
She became a viral sensation dealing with an abusive actor and the Sheriff’s Department needed some good press to offset a scandal.
The homicide detectives that worked their way up through the ranks are not happy, and let her know about it every chance they get.
Ronin won’t let that stop her. She’s been given the lead in a brutal triple homicide and she will do the job, ignoring the jibes, and learning everything she can.
Lee Goldberg has written this book with a fresh perspective. He walks us through Ronin’s thought processes, her rational determination to do things right, and follow the leads in a thorough manner.
The book is quick read but it’s solid, even weighty, and well constructed. There is enough characterization to make an impact without lag. I suggest you stay with this one and see what else Goldberg has up his sleeve for Ronin.
