Described as being “A gritty, hard-boiled crime novel with breathless action and deep, sturdy characters” (Robert Dugoni, #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author of the Tracy Crosswhite Series), Nickless takes us through the darkness of a grisly murder and the elite group with which our victim surrounded himself with. Except this group is much more dangerous than it appears on its surface. This is book four in the Sydney Parnell series.
Many thanks to #SaichekPublicity for providing me with a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
The verdict on this one will be delivered in an upcoming post.
Iraqi war vet and former railway cop Sydney Parnell is now the youngest homicide detective in Denver’s Major Crimes Unit. In the past, gut instinct has served her and her K9 partner well. But it’s not a trait Len Bandoni, her old nemesis turned reluctant mentor, admires. Not until Sydney’s instincts lead to their first case: a man tortured and beaten to death, then left in a refrigerated train car with cryptic messages carved into his body.
The victim is a well-liked member of an elite club called the Superior Gentlemen. At first glance, the club appears harmless. But beneath its refined surface swim darker currents.
As Sydney; her K9 partner, Clyde; and Bandoni investigate the grisly murder, the three develop a bond that carries them through a shocking series of crimes and a horrifying conspiracy that threatens the detectives’ lives and promises to bring their beloved city to its knees.
