I received a free ebook of this title in exchange for a fair review.
This is the first in a new series featuring a somewhat loose cannon DC Cassie Rowan and a therapist, Alan Palmer. In this introduction to the series, Rowan is being used as bait to try to trap a serial rapist on the streets. The rapist moves through several victims as the book progresses. Meanwhile, Alan Palmer has some patients that seem likely suspects and that draws him into this case. Both Cassie and Alan have side plots concerning their personal lives that allow the readers more of a glimpse into who they are and perhaps why they act and react as they do.
Well written plot with plenty of possible suspects to sift through alongside Cassie. There is also a strong recurring vein of blatant misogyny in both Cassie’s treatment by her co-workers and in the treatment of rape victims and prostitutes. Great start to a new series.
