By this point we think we understand how important it is to Eve to be a police officer. This book sees her suspended from duty, and she is devastated. Roarke and her team rally round to support her, and solve the case, and a murder of which she is not investigator but suspect.
We meet DETECTIVE WEBSTER, from Internal Affairs, a man Eve has known from the Police Academy days. We also meet DOCTOR LOUISE DIMATTO, a doctor at the free clinic.
It’s a story full of emotion, a test of relationships and dedication to duty.
We also meet OFFICER TRUEHEART, a young and naive man with dreams of being a detective. As she did with Peabody, Eve recognizes his potential and gives him an opportunity to prove himself.
