Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: When Buffalo detective Lauren Riley gets a request for help from her nemesis, defense attorney Frank Violanti, she's ready to turn him down--until she meets his eighteen-year-old client.
Detective Lauren Riley has always been on the opposite side of the courtroom from slick defense attorney Frank Violanti. Now he's begging to hire her as a private investigator to help clear his client of murder. She wants nothing to do with the media circus surrounding the case-- until she meets the eighteen-year-old suspect. Lauren must unravel the conflicting evidence and changing stories to get at the buried facts. The more she digs, the more she discovers that nothing is what it first appears to be-- and now Lauren has attracted a stalker.

  • Booklist Reviews : 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.
