5.0 out of 5 stars Fast and Gritty, November 3, 2011
This review is from: D.R.T. (Dead Right There) (A Nate Richards Novel Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
DRT is police code that stands for Dead Right There, a message used by police to tell paramedics, detectives, and the coroner driving to the scene that the victim is dead. No need to hurry.
Nate Richards, detective for the Treasure Valley Metro Police, is about to use DRT a great deal.
A serial killer is on the loose, but the murders aren't normal. Assassination seems to be the best word. And the victims all have one thing in common. They are all listed as registered sex offenders. Someone in the Treasure Valley, Nate discovers, is on a personal crusade to rid the world of those who abuse others.
Nate is torn by the idea of protecting those who've molested children in the past and his duty to protect those who've paid their dues to society in prison. But for Nate, the law is the law, and his job is to stop the murders.
But juggling his career and his personal life is growing difficult. Prepared to date again after his true love, Amber, abandons him, he tentatively takes a woman out for dinner, and the evening is a hit. His choices grow more difficult, however, when Amber returns from her sabbatical.
The mystery is cleared somewhat as Nate and his partner discover who is next to be murdered, and they scramble to save her life. And the killer won't give up easily, the attempts for assassination grow in complexity, giving credence to the idea that the murderer could be a woman.
DRT is fast paced novel that puts the reader in the seat next to Nate Richards. The author's in-depth police knowledge gives the sense of standing in the private meetings of the detectives, as well as in the station as they sort through evidence. But be prepared to dodge bullets and chase bad guys.
Gritty, but not excessive, Christian, but not preachy, DRT is a worthy second in the Nate Richards series. If you're a fan of modern police shows and love tension in life and death decisions, as well as plot twists and turns, DRT is for you.
