3.5 stars. This book didn't quite measure up to the others I've read by this author. It was still very expressively written, but the interactions of the characters seemed forced. I can't see a straight cop giving his partner blow-jobs to induce after-sex confidences, unless the stakes were a lot higher than in this instance. And the relationship between McBride and Toby moved fast, without the kind of underpinnings that Fox usually provides. It felt more like desperation than love. McBride was a great character but his interactions with the others were not as nuanced as I've come to expect. The bad cop was pushed over the top by the plot. Not a bad book, but the first Harper Fox that I don't think I'll reread.
