A New York City public defender takes on the homicide case of a burglar nicknamed the “Buzz Killer,” so named because of his method of gaining access to his targets. When her client is the target of an attempted jailhouse killing and she, herself, is targeted, Macie realizes she is in way over her head. She reluctantly teams up with a former NYPD detective who was dismissed from the department.

This is one of those stay-up-all-night, turn-the-pages-as-fast-as-you-can, can’t-put-it-down books. Need I say more?!?

Though this is the first book published under his own name, readers may be familiar with this author’s writing under his pen name, Richard Castle. As Castle, he wrote the Nikki Heat series.

I haven’t read any of the Nikki Heat books but I think I’d better add them to my “to read” list.
