This may be my favorite book of the series despite some grossness. The story is interesting, and we see Lou struggle with injuries and ptsd from the last case. Someone on Goodreads said she wasn‘t buying Lou‘s feelings for Sam and his for her because we aren‘t shown it — we‘re told it. I get that. Her relationship with her police partner, Colin, is more relatable because we‘re shown the things they do to care for and protect the other. #audiowalk

Okay, I didn‘t think it was possible but this book just took an even grosser turn. Interesting story, but gross. #audiowalk

Reggie Can you put it in a spoiler just for those of us who want to know? Lol 12mo
KathyWheeler @Reggie Sure. Here you go — cannibalism. Yuck. 12mo

Okay. This book is making me itchy. Lou‘s case is the possible murder of a hoarder— in LA, in the summer with 100° temperatures and lots of humidity and no ac. There‘s lots of cats and cat waste and bugs. Ugh. I‘ll be glad when they‘re done with this crime scene. Yuck. The geese and turtles were out in the park today. #audiowalk

EvieBee That‘s a recipe for ripe rankness lol! 12mo

Another solid entry to this newish series. I really appreciate the author's efforts in conveying the difficulties that Sgt. Elouise Norton has with her struggles in race and gender within the LAPD. And trying to hide her ptsd while juggling a really icky case w/office politics. The case itself, while a solid procedural, was slightly predictable. There were some steps that I'm surprised that the detectives didn't first pursue.
