LJ Reviews 2016 October #1

LAPD Det. Davina Richards is lead investigative officer at Pacific Homicide on a brutal murder case involving the partial dismemberment of a beautiful blonde. Found in a sewage treatment plant, the body is quickly identified as Anya Nosova, a recently arrived Russian immigrant. Meanwhile Davie is under investigation by the new police inspector general, Malcolm Harrington. Davie and Harrington crossed paths years before when Harrington railroaded her father off the force. Now, Harrington wants to hang her out to dry for killing a suspect. He succeeds in getting her suspended, but Davie is determined to find justice for a young woman who deserved more in life than being murdered. Better known for a cozy series starring financial adviser Tucker Sinclair (Cool Cache), Smiley kicks off a hard-boiled series with a bang in this fast-paced novel that sweeps readers along quickly. Davie is an engaging sleuth; her tough exterior hides a fragile heart. VERDICT This classic police procedural, with the obligatory cop humor included, recalls titles by Robin Burcell or Alafair Burke.. Copyright 2016 Library Journal.
