Über diesen Titel


A high-powered thriller set in Washington, D.C., features a pair of cops in a fiendishly clever plot that involves everything from kinky sex to shady real estate development. Local media.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Cluttered and routine Washington-based police procedural, the second from husband-and-wife team of Diane Henry and Nicholas Horrock (Blood Red, Snow White,1992). The story takes off with a powerfully detailed account of the injuries suffered by Washington, D.C., Metro Homicide Lieutenant Cal Terrell, whos been beaten nearly to death by a team of masked assailants at his rustic horse-farm home. While emergency room staff fuss over his battered body, Terrell remembers, through a series of flashbacks, salient moments in his investigation of the murder of Mary Jeanne Turner, a 19-year-old restaurant hostess whose body, fished out of Chesapeake Bay, was disfigured by a B branded on her buttocks. Fortunately, none of the characters that follow, with the exception of Terrell's partner, the predictably beautiful and feisty Sergeant Roberta ``Bobbie'' Short, and his equally predictable bureaucratic back-pedaling police chief Nathaniel Bench, have the letter B in their names, and they aren't suspects. Then, while investigating a drive-by shooting in front of a Jamaican nightclub, Terrell and Short find evidence that what had seemed a random act of gang violence was, in fact, part of a plan to persuade the neighborhood's few remaining residents to sell their property to black realtor Virgil James, a good friend of Mayor Martin Cameron. James was not only seen squiring Turner around before she died, but was also assembling property so that wealthy power-broker Harry Moray, a good buddy of the Presidents, could turn D.C.'s slums into a sprawl of upscale condos. Before Terrell can nab Moray, though, Moray tries to bribe him to join his security force. Then Terrell's ex-wife Vivian, a gorgeous TV news reporter who never seems to be in front of a camera, blows back into his life, complaining about her dull drunk of a husband, a White House counsel who might be involved in a secret cover-up. . . . Tangled plotting is snarled even more by clumsy prose, stilted dialogue, and enough red herrings to stock a Georgetown deli. -- Copyright ©1999, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
