Book: Dark Passage
Series: Rookie Club #3
Author: Danielle Girard
Cameron Cruz feels like she'll never recover when her lover, Diego, is killed during an undercover assignment—leaving her pregnant with his unborn son.
Back from maternity leave, Cameron is ready to rejoin her Special Ops team and work to shut down a human trafficking operation. But when she witnesses a fellow officer shot, she can hardly believe her eyes. Because the shooter is someone she trusted. Someone she loved. Someone she thought was dead…
The evidence against him mounts. Evidence that he’s guilty of kidnapping and imprisoning the very people he’s sworn to protect and serve. Guilty of betraying their teammates, and the entire police department. Guilty of betraying her.
Despite what she's seen, Cameron's love for Diego is as alive as he is. She believes he's innocent—she just has to prove it. But the closer she gets to the traffickers, the closer her investigation comes to her department’s front door.
Suddenly, she must question who she can trust.
And who is willing to risk it all to send her—and the truth—to the grave. -Goodreads
Review: Girard saved the best in the series for #3! This was a really good read. Cameron was a strong, likable lead character and I was surprised to find I loved Hailey's role in this book two. She actually acted like a real detective with skills. And there was teamwork between several women in 'the rookie club.' The human trafficking storyline was very sad yet engaging.
