Cold-hearted detective Peter Lazarus loves to toe the line and, being an undercover cop, he enjoys his sanctioned criminalism. Going by the name of Shane Sterns, called in to gather evidence against a ruthless gang distributing and transporting black tar heroin up and down the East Coast, he's a man without anything to lose.
That's until he walks into a bar run by the gang and sees Charlie.
Charlotte Charlie Palmer knows him from a different time and place. She can blow his cover with one look. While undercover, he married Charlie; and after getting too close, he abandoned her. There were reasons for it back then, but watching Charlie dance with dead eyes, he knows her downward spiral has been swift. Recognizing the bars on her gilded cage, he realizes he does have one big regret.
Shane says he's there for something else, and Charlie's got her own reasons to hate him and her own secrets to hide. He doesn't know everything about her, not by a long shot. Not only has her best friend disappeared, but Charlie knows she's next in line to die if she makes one false move. Loving him or hating him, trusting Shane is the only way she's going to live another day.
Angels Cry is a dark, modern noir novella from the Spark Before Dying series.

The storyline wasn't bad but I gave it 3 stars due to the reader. This was a gritty book but the reader sounded too happy. In fact I couldn't tell the characters apart and they never sounded angry or upset for mobsters. The reader wasn't horrible just better in a different genre
