Both Kovak and Liska are seasoned cops in the homicide department. They have their own rules, but as they are consistent in bring the bad guy to justice, their superiors often look the other way instead of questioning their methods.
This time, they are working on a closed case against orders from Internal Affairs (IA). The warnings and threats fell on deaf ears as they tear into this murder that was ruled a suicide. Opening the case causes all kinds of havoc, including the suicide of the victim’s father. Or was it another murder?
Each of the books in this series are able to stand alone, but I wouldn’t want to miss one of Kovak and Liska’s stories. I give this story 5 stars, as it kept me going up to the very end.
