Publisher's Summary

Just back from her second tour in Afghanistan, NYPD Detective Chiara Corelli goes undercover to expose a ring of dirty cops. But when she's ordered to kill to prove her loyalty, she aborts the operation without having identified the leaders. Now, Corelli is the one exposed. With her brothers and sisters in blue ostracizing her, can she trust Detective P. J. Parker to watch her back?

Parker is the daughter of a vehement critic of the NYPD. But that doesn't stop her from wanting to work in the homicide division. And wanting to learn from the best. Unfortunately, Chiara Corelli is the best....even if she is the most hated detective in the department.

Without Parker, Corelli will be condemned to desk duty. Corelli is Parker's only chance to work in homicide. Will the two women put aside their fears and join forces to solve a brutal murder and identify the leaders of the dirty cops before they get to Corelli's family?

Compelling

Really enjoyed this whodunnit. Great plot and I didn’t feel cheated by the twists. Interesting characters and great narration. There is no cliffhanger, but the author does a masterly job of drawing you in. You are going to buy the next book. You have been warned.

Great listen!

I loved this book. I want to give it more than 5 stars. The characters were believable, the mystery a true mystery. I had no idea 'whodunit' til the end. Abby Craden was FABULOUS, as usual. Unfortunately this is the only book from this author on audible, I hope there is more soon... in the meantime I'm going to read the old fashioned way and get all of her 📚.

Not What I Expected

Very Impressed. I liked the story and I was pleasantly pleased that there was not a forced romance. In my opinion this was some of the narrators best work.

Excellent!!!

I am a big fan of the Detective Chiara series so was really excited to see the first book in audio. I didn’t think I could love this story more but I seas wrong. The audiobook took it to a whole other level! I love crime/ mystery books where the main character is actually a great detective and uses her brains and experience to solve the crime and is not running around clueless. I can’t wait to listen to the other books in the series!!!

I should have night it sooner

I'm not one for giving all the details of a book in my reviews. I figure you already read the publisher's speal and you have an idea what is about. I've read or listened to a lot of books over the years and I still can't write to save my life so excuse my horrible punctuation, Grammer and typos.
This book kept popping up in my recommendations but for some reason I didn't click on it to see what it was about. That was totally silly of me. I loved this book. It had me right from the beginning and kept my A.D.D brain focused all the way until the too quick ending. It was a really smart story and the characters were both believable and likable,.Well except for the nasty chick that got killed.
It was fun to listen to. I'm a big fan of Abby Craden but the voice she did for Parker annoyed me a bit. Parker grew up in Harlem, even if she did go to private schools and have "the senator " as a father but Abby had her sounding like she was from the South or something. All the other characters sounded great and I like that you can always tell them apart when she narrates.
It's all worth the credit. Enjoy.

Excellent book

the story is excellent, the narration is better than excellent, but there is NO romance, could it be that there will be a sequel?

A Good Mystery

This is my first book by Catherine Maiorisi and I am a fan. And you can never go wrong with Abby Craden as narrator. She brings so much personality to each character. Although not available on Audible yet, this book is part of a series, which I look forward to reading. A compelling story of a war hero, cop hero going undercover to bust bad cops, but who refuses to kill in order to keep her cover. The backlash is brutal as she is shunned by fellow officers, but assigned a partner for protection. Their first case is to solve a murder of a Wall Street finance powerhouse. It’s quite an adventure including delving into lies, backgrounds, car chases, and interrogations. Definitely worth the credit!
