Official Summary:Mason “Mace” Perry was a maverick cop on the D.C. police force until she was kidnapped and framed for a crime. She lost everything-her career, her liberty-and spent two years in prison. Now back on the outside, Mace is trying to rebuild her life and track down the people who set her up. But even with her police chief sister at her side, she has to work in the shadows: there’s a vindictive US attorney on her tail and she’s just looking for a reason to send her back behind bars . . .

Roy Kingman is a young lawyer, still getting used to his high-paid job at a law firm in Washington. When Roy discovers the dead body of a female partner at the firm, his fate becomes entangled with Mace’s, as the two team up to investigate.

But as their enquiries gather pace, Roy and Mace soon find themselves in unexpected territory; drawn into both the private and public world of the nation’s capital, as dark secrets begin to emerge. For what began as a fairly routine homicide investigation will quickly turn into something far more complex. And possibly lethal . . . ” – Goodreads

Review: Just love the relationship between Mace and her sister. Even though her sister is in an extremely high position, any association with Mace immediately starts tainting her. She doesn’t care, she knows her sister is innocent. Also, the relationship between Roy and Mace was refreshing too, it wasn’t forced or anything. They just both wanted to find out the truth.

Even though Mace hated prison, plus it messed her up mentally. She hated not being a cop more. She hated not wearing blue. Plus not finding out the truth was also eating at her. The only way she knew how to be a cop again was to break the rules and to solve a case.

Sniper scope on a rifle, in a moving car. I had to giggle at that, like really? Be moving way too quickly to zero in on a sniper scope.
