For Deputy District Attorney Samantha Kincaid's 32nd birthday, she gets an unusual gift: a homicide call out. The crime scene is in the elite Hillside neighborhood in Portland, Oregon. The victim is hotshot investigative reporter Percy Crenshaw, who has been bludgeoned to death in his carport.

Tensions in the city have been running high. The previous week, a police officer shot and killed an unarmed mother of two in what he claims was self-defense. In the aftermath, protestors have waged increasingly agitated anti-police protests. Crenshaw's death, it seems, is not unrelated - within a matter of hours, police arrest two young men who appear to have embarked on a crime spree in the aftermath of the protests.

The case looks straightforward, especially when one of the suspects confesses. But then the man recants, claiming coercive police tactics, and Samantha finds herself digging for more evidence in a search that leads her through an elaborate maze of connections between the city's drug trade and officers in the bureau.

    " Trouble with giving stars: can't give it 2 because there are other novels that I've given 2 stars that I liked much more than this one, however, giving this one 1 star, according to this rating system, means I didn't like it. I finished it; it wasn't great, but to say I didn't like it is not exactly fair. It certainly isn't a favorite and I'm not going to read any other of her crime novels because there are just too many other books out there to read that I'm sure are better but she did write some amusing lines and she was trying to give us some idea of how the whole justice system works. Unfortunately for those of us who don't really get some of the inside stuff and abbreviations, etc. it just became rather tedious (would rather watch Law & Order, the Closer, etc. for that information). In addition to that, the mystery itself wasn't all that interesting. "
