I'm not sure why I'm surprised that I enjoyed this book, but I am! And I did! It may be that I was somewhat distracted by the back cover mentioning that the reporter of the TV show Judgement Day, Suzanne, comes home to find the senator she is currently investigating unconscious on her living room floor. Not far into the story, this appears to not be the case. Yes, someone is unconscious on the living room floor, but the senator is too big a character and it's not him. This was somewhat confusing but once I got past that, the story was good and a very quick read. The characters were tempered with a little humor, and sweetened with a tiny dash of romance. There wasn't enough religion in the book to make it obvious and the story just rang true to the times. It could have been taken from the headlines. I found the relationship between the two detectives to be solid although they could have been fleshed out a bit more. The whole story could have been more detailed but still, it works. Would I call this my favorite read this year? No. But if you're looking for something light and entertaining, check this one out.
