Open Season by Maryann Miller is a police-procedural and a mystery. Two female police officers are paired together and the undercurrent between them is almost as charged as the case they’re working.

There’s such tension between Sarah and Angel that it’s a stretch to call them “partners.” Sarah is dealing with the loss of her previous partner as well as the killing of the boy. Angel doesn’t like being partnered with Sarah since it seems to be a ploy by the upper brass, plus her family is against the arrangement. Will the animosity get in the way of solving the murders?

Both women will have to fight their personal demons. Racing against time and a murderer adept at hiding and killing, they have to put aside their differences and work together to solve the case, as each killing becomes more brazen.

Open Season is character driven. There’s also action and mystery, but it is the two main characters who move the story. Miller does a good job of personalizing each woman and bringing each to life on the page. She doesn’t take sides, but lets the reader see inside the mind and heart of each woman. Miller also doesn’t shy away from the controversial undercurrent in the book.

I give Open Season by Maryann Miller a rating of Hel-Yeah because the book is a good read with fully developed characters, an elusive killer and a highly charged social aspect.
