really liked it
Read in November, 2009

I really loved this book. It's right up there with some of Thomas Perry's books (eg. Butcher's Boy) and in the same style as Denis Johnson's "Nobody Move" for it's gritty crime action.
This is a well written story about an LA Sheriff's deputy, Charlie Hood, working the southern California Antelope Valley area whose new straight arrow partner is gunned down while on duty. Charlie is enlisted by Internal Affairs to find the murderer and uncovers a shady past of him and his previous partner dealing with drug cartels. The book is well paced and authentic feeling with some colorful characters and dialog.
I had not heard of Parker's books before but but I'm a fan now and have ordered some of his earlier books which were Edgar Award winners.
