Internal Affairs officer Kellie Munroe is investigating one of her own…
Kellie and Detective Amelia Donovan were childhood friends, until a horrifying event destroyed their friendship. Now Amelia is slated for promotion to Superintendent, but her career is in jeopardy following a physical altercation with a suspect, and her history with Kellie complicates the already sensitive investigation.
Amelia’s partner Darryl Hill must work with Kellie, despite serious reservations…
Darryl is loyal, ethical, and dedicated to his work, but he can’t contain his curiosity about Kellie, who always seems to push his partner’s buttons. When their investigation leads to criminal kingpin Dick Coleani and a string of murdered men, an attempt on their lives sends Kellie into a panic, reigniting memories of her childhood trauma.
As Darryl helps Kellie through her fear, he can no longer deny his attraction to her…but he wants more than the broken, traumatised woman feels capable of giving.
Terrifying personal threats force Kellie to pursue answers in secret…
When Kellie begins to suspect this case and Coleani might somehow be connected to her own personal nightmare, she will need help from both Darryl and Amelia as she plunges down a perilous path.
But will Darryl be able to rein in her quest for justice before the past repeats itself and Kellie is left with another—possibly fatal—open wound?
This series is so good and just got better as cops fall, and fall hard, whilst still trying to keep the city safe.
Amelia Donovan, sassy and tough female detective, has a complaint brought against her by a suspect who tried to kill her. In steps Internal Affairs and Kellie who has to decide if Amelia's behaviour and actions were justified. Amelia and Kellie have a past together: one that didn't end well. Whilst things heat up between Amelia's partner, Darryl, and Kellie, this is so much more than just about their growing relationship.
It was about confronting your past to move towards your future, it was about trusting those around you and renewing friendships. Against all the odds, Kellie has a sass and a strength about her that helps her follow her path to justice.
I loved this story of love, friendship, confronting your past, and suspense elements. It flowed beautifully between all the different elements, the characters got under my skin and I was once more immersed in an edge of your seat story.
