Dead Center

Book: Dead Center
Series: The Rookie Club #1
Author: Danielle Girard

Fifteen years ago, the Rookie Club began as a tight-knit band of female cops struggling for respect. Jamie Vail was one of them. So was Natasha Devlin, the woman Jamie caught in bed with her husband.

When Natasha Devlin turns up dead, Jamie can’t bring herself to care. She’s got enough on her plate, hunting a sexual predator who preys on female officers. He leaves them alive, but brutalized. But when the MO of the Devlin murder matches the MO of the perp in Jamie’s case, she’s brought in on the homicide investigation and back into the Rookie Club she has been avoiding since her husband’s affair.

As additional police officers become victims, Jamie must confront her past and solve the murder of her ex-husband's lover before she becomes the killer's ultimate prize.-Goodreads

Review: I was looking for a new police procedural type book and found this series. I really liked Jamie, the sex crimes officer who is the main character of this book. She is working to put a serial rapist behind bars when a fellow officer, the woman she holds responsible for breaking up her marriage, is found murdered. Are the cases related? I will say the series 'Rookie Club' is a tad misleading as it implies an actual club of officers. It was mostly some women that had dinner together years ago and very occasionally get together now. Overall, I liked it. 

Grade: 3/5
