The Snow Raven
Detective Josie Corsino working the streets of Hollywood during the 1980s. When one of the narcotics team informants ends up dead, she and her partner need to solve the crime and try and save the reputation of their Hollywood division. The facts that point to a dirty cop as a possible suspect make their job even tougher.
This book reads like a gritty episode of a TV police drama. Although set in the 1980s there really is nothing in the book that sets it apart from a current novel. A good stand-alone novel, I didn’t feel I was missing anything not reading the rest of the series. I liked the characters but felt the cadence of the book was a bit choppy. There was a lot of build-up, but not much surprise when it came to the climax. Josie’s struggle to balance work and home life did not make it easy to like her character but did give it an air of realism. The police procedural descriptions and information in this book were realistic but dry. Overall this was a good book. If you are a fan of PI mysteries or police mysteries I would recommend it.
