Mason "Mace" Perry was a firebrand cop on the D.C. police force until she was kidnapped and framed for a crime. She lost everything - her badge, her career, her freedom-and spent two years in prison. Now she's back on the outside and focused on one mission: to be a cop once more.
Her only shot to be a true blue again is to solve a major case on her own, and prove she has the right to wear the uniform. But even with her police chief sister on her side, she has to work in the shadows: A vindictive U.S. attorney is looking for any reason to send Mace back behind bars.
Then Roy Kingman enters her life. Roy is a young lawyer who aided the poor until he took a high-paying job at a law firm in Washington. Mace and Roy meet after he discovers the dead body of a female partner at the firm. As they investigate the death, they start uncovering surprising secrets from both the private and public world of the nation's capital.
Soon, what began as a fairly routine homicide takes a terrifying and unexpected turn-into something complex, diabolical, and possibly lethal.

David, has become my new best friend. I love his books and thought I would not like something without Oliver, however, I want more of the Perry sisters, and more of Davids books.
This book is ok, not great as I have come to expect from Baldacci. The plot was a little predictable however still fairly enjoyable to listen to as the time passes when stuck in traffic.
I usually love Baldacci books, so I ignored the bad reviews and bought this book anyway. I am still struggling to finish it, and am about to give up. I don't like the narrator, and the characters are not compelling. It's hard to believe Baldacci wrote this book. There are better choices out there.
David Baldacci didn't live up to his past works. being a fan of his work I was excited to listen to his next book. I had to fight my way through the entire book. I would not recommend this book to others, but I am still looking forward to David's next book.
Retired after 36 years in Law Enforcement. Now working part time for the Sheriff Office.
It's a long time for the plot to unfold, and was all over the place.
This book was not one of his best, good but not great.
Say something about yourself!
I am a big Baldacci fan. This book is great and seems like the begining of a great series. This is well worth the credit.
I must've listened to a differnt book than the other reviewers. I rated it a 5 and thought it was excellent.
I also do favor police detective stories so maybe I'm biased. If you like these you'll enjoy this book.
