Just when you think there will never be more captivating, loveable and witty characters in a high octane crime story, along comes photojournalist, Jake Wolfe, who witnesses the killing of an arrogant attorney, and the savvy Lieutenant Inspector Terrell Sanders, who works with the San Francisco Police Department and is called in to handle the case, along with his no nonsense partner, Sergeant Beth Cushman. The fact that Jake and Terrell are best friends, and his partner, Beth, make for a superb read from start to finish, matching wits with meticulous, cold blooded assassin known as The Artist. The story has multi-ethnic characters that are humorous, kind, strong, engaging, patronizing, cunning and wicked. Then you have Sergeants Cori Denton, a certified kook, and her partner Ray Kirby who will protect her zealous disposition at any cost because cops don’t snitch on cops. There is non-stop pandemonium, international intrigue, twists and turns, secrets and lies and many plotlines...
I wish I could have given this book 10 stars--it is that good. It is an amazing book that I will not soon forget. You can't help but fall in love with Jake and Cody. What an incredible pair they are. Jake has a unique way of bringing humor and light-heartedness to serious situations. I found myself bursting into laughter at some of the “play-on-words” Jake expresses.
The book took so many twists and turns it had me on the edge of my seat practically the whole time I was reading. The detail in the book is exquisite. It is a hard book to put down. It definitely kept me wondering what came next and what was going to happen to Jake and Cody. The book definitely leaves one wanting more.
If you like playing detective, you will love this book.
He skillfully introduced all the characters throughout the book and what a cast it is. My emotions were all over the place as I read. I'm so looking forward to the next book.
I loved the plot and the characters. However, there were so many pages of "filler" explaining and re-explaining back stories of the assorted characters, that wonderful plot was bogged down it and was a chore to read it. I found myself just skimming through the 800+ pages to read the good parts. I also found myself skimming or skipping the "veteran's banter" between Jake and Terrell as well as all the bad guys prolonged conversations - just 1 or 2 pages would have set the stage so the reader would understand those relationships.
I would happily give this book 5 stars if about 400 pages of filler was edited out. bc
