Audrey Vorkink is a no-nonsense police detective in Toledo, Ohio, and very tired of being called soccer mom. Her trainee Ronda and herself make a good team, as they collar perps of all kinds. When a strange accident occurred in front of Audrey when she's off-duty, a man was killed on impact, and the other driver, who should NOT have time to get away, somehow did. And all the evidence seems to suggest whoever did this is NOT human. And that made no sense. When Audrey's home was tossed, then Ronda, when confronting the perp, was tossed off a six-story building's roof and died (and the perp, who also fell off, managed to escape) Audrey knew for sure now the perp's not human. Grounded by the shrink and hounded by internal affairs, for a non-ET explanation, Audrey can't officially investigate, not that it will prevent her from chasing down the perp, alien or not...
The resolution was a bit weak, as it went for a truly x-file type ending that resolved almost nothing, but it does nicely setup a sequel. Character was... not bad, I guess. Audrey comes across as hard, but not without her feminine charms.
What I didn't like: Enough already with the trash talk! For me, it became really annoying. The knitting club was ridiculous with their "project."
Also, A Jewish detective named Vorkink,sounds a bit too much like "working" with a Yiddish accent. (yes, we noticed)
What I REALLY didn't like: This is not a complete story. We are taken to a point of discovery and dropped. The sequel is hinted at but not even available. Not a great marketing decision. When it is published, the reader will probably have moved on.
I really enjoyed viewing things through the eyes of the woman who's a member of the Toledo Police force.
The author successfully managed to build a believable person that i did want to follow to the story's resolution.
Nice job, Carrie Harris.
Yes, i'd be interested to see more of this author's writings.
