Carol Starkey is a survivor, a Los Angeles bomb-squad veteran now doing time as a Detective-2 with Los Angeles Police Department’s criminal conspiracy section. It has been three years since the detonation that killed her partner and lover, “Sugar” Boudreaux. Sugar saved Carol’s life but couldn’t stop two bomb fragments that sliced through her protective Kevlar, leaving her permanently scarred. The emotional fallout from the trauma can only be tempered by a steady diet of Tagamet and gin.

When a seemingly innocuous bomb call takes the life of another colleague, Carol embarks on an investigation of a series of explosions that reveal intentions far more disturbing than one-shot acts of anarchy. They are designed expressly to kill bomb technicians, and as the one tech who got away, Carol is in the fight for her life. 

Against the dazzling and lonely backdrop of contemporary Los Angeles, Crais has crafted the most unforgettable female lead character in crime fiction and pitted her against a frighteningly brilliant killer for the modern age.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Nelson | 4/1/2011

    " Pretty solid crime book. Definitely not as riveting as L.A. Requiem. The mystery plot itself I found a bit formulaic, but the characters and their motivations made for some good tension and suspense. The bomb squad angle made it a bit unique as well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Babete | 3/5/2011

    " Um policial cheio de acção, uma leitura muito boa baseada numa personagem principal muito forte!( O Anjo Da Destruição ) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Kwing (Mook) | 2/20/2011

    " An exploration of secondary character Carol Starkey. Typical of Crais the plot is exciting and well developed. The characters are fully explored and the dialog is superb. "
