Booklist Reviews 2018 January #1

Recommend this one to anyone who loves courtroom dramas where lawyers tear into witnesses like pit bulls. And to anyone hot for a police procedural where tired cops make mistakes but slowly, relentlessly—and with morbid humor—get the job done. Redmond delivers both in one package. Lauren Riley, a detective with the Buffalo, New York, Police Department, is greeted with an unusual request: a criminal defense attorney, so successful the cops award him the ultimate insult—"slick"—begs her to use her investigative skills to prove his client innocent. She agrees, to the chagrin of her colleagues, and as she works away she takes on a couple of cold cases. So much for the plot. The real attraction here is a keyhole view into a world that turns our expectations upside down—a world where a bullying, quasi-fascist cop can be the only one with a handle on reality. Keep your eyes on Redmond, a retired cop who knows how to write. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.

Buffalo, N.Y., cold case detective Lauren Riley, the heroine of Redmond's promising first novel and series launch, is also a licensed PI. It's in that latter capacity that lawyer Frank Violanti, with whom Lauren has tangled in court, hires her. His 18-year-old godson, David Spencer, has been charged with the second-degree murder of Katherine Vine, a customer at the store where he worked. He claims she lured him into her car one night and was still alive when he left her after an hour of wild sex. Lauren is dismayed to learn that the lead detective in the case is her ex-fiancé, the abusive Joe Wheeler, who, after discovering she's working for Frank, punches her in the face. In contrast, Lauren's married ex-husband, Mark Hathaway, with whom she's having an affair, is glad to provide information about the victim and her husband, whom he knows socially. Redmond, a recently retired Buffalo PD homicide detective, keeps everything moving nicely in this well-constructed crime novel, marred only by the cartoonish Joe. (Feb.)
