True Blue by David Baldacci

I haven't read Baldacci for a while, and I don't know why. This book was good!

It begins with a cop who was framed for a crime she didn't commit and jailed. The next chapter has a lawyer who opens the office fridge to get the coffee and has a dead lawyer fall in his arms...

Mace's sister lets her go along on the case if she agrees she won't say anything. You can guess how long that lasts. Roy immediately dislikes her because she's insinuating he might have been the murderer.

Mace wants to solve a big case to exonerate herself and become a cop again. Roy just doesn't want to be accused of murder or to let the Captain, a homeless veteran, be nailed the crime.

As time goes on, Mace and Roy end up working together trying to solve the crime. Mostly because the police think they have their murderer in jail, and because someone is trying to kill them both.

It's fast paced with a plot with lots of twists and turns. And when you find out upper level government is involved, you don't know who is going to win at the end.

If you'd like my copy of the ARC, leave a comment here on the blog and then email at info NOSPAM @bookfaerie.com (take the spaces and the NOSPAM out) with your name and address and why you'd like to read the book. I'll be picking a winner in about a week or so.
