For the first time in years, things are going well for Long Beach homicide detective Danny Beckett. He's closing cases with his partner, Jennifer Tanaka, and keeping a spare suit at the condo of his girlfriend, Julia Rice. But Danny's peace is shattered when he's called to investigate an apparent suicide - one that quickly reveals itself to be murder.
Just as Danny begins to investigate, a bomb detonates in his car while it's parked in a mechanic's lot, sidelining him from both the murder case and the hunt for his own assassin. Placed in protective custody at the home of his partner, the headstrong investigator must resist the temptation to break protocol - and find the willpower to stop his own self-destructive behavior before it threatens his two most important relationships. But what happens when Danny must choose between following the rules and saving a life?

I was very excited to see a new book in this series and this one didn't disappoint. Not so sure Dilts is the right narrator but other than that I loved it.
I love Tyler Dilts's writing and have been looking forward to this book. The writing is excellent and I like the author's narration. It has an interesting storyline, if a little disjointed here and there. But having Danny miss the elephant in the living room? Really?
I probably would not. Tyler is a great author but not a good narrator.
It is a toss up between Danny and Jen. They both bring unique perspective to the story, and Jen keeps Danny in line (sometimes)
He did a bad job. Without the he said he said it would be impossible to differ between characters.
All of Tyler's books make me both laugh and cry. However his inability to give each character detracted from that..
Please continue the series, but please bring back either of the other narrators.
Somewhat convoluted, but well constructed story. Major characters are well-drawn as are some of the secondary characters. I'll be going back to read or listen to the first three in the series. The author does a nice job reading his own book.
What makes a good book to me is an ability to connect with characters quickly so I'm invested in what happens to them. This book achieved that end and I very much enjoyed listening.
