Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best of the Cops and Docs series Of the three books in the Cops and Docs series (this is the 3rd), this one is hands down my favorite of the bunch and has me hoping that author KD Williamson will write more books like this in the future. A new cast of characters and setting in New Orleans post-Hurricane Katrina set this one apart from the previous two books, and it can be read as a standalone, away from the rest of the series. Books one and two are best read together as they are sequential in terms of the plot, and have in common location and characters none of whom appear in book three. Compared to its predecessors in the series, this one was more visceral and gritty, showing the city of New Orleans thru the lens of the good (food), the bad (crime and corruption), and the ugly (racism and other forms of discrimination). I wondered if this book was more personal for the author as well with so many passages reading as if they were drawn from true events and personal experience. There is some serious edge of your seat drama and suspense which makes for intense and engrossing reading. Racism and other forms of discrimination are depicted bluntly, confronted head on with no shying away from their presence and ugliness. That and the post-Katrina landscape of New Orleans as the backdrop for the story make for a truly satisfying albeit sometimes chilling and eye opening read. This story had me unnerved a lot of the time and worried about the characters’ well-being more than usual. Main characters Haley and Tonya are great together from their first shared scene and are well supported by many secondary characters in and outside of their workplaces; the romance is both hot and heartwarming with some very real obstacles thrown in their way that cannot be ignored or swept under the carpet. All the characters are written in such a way that they could be either people you know in some capacity or might run into, not idealized or absent serious character flaws as some tend to be in lesfic romance novels. A few of the secondary characters are actually quite despicable for their attitudes and behaviours; thankfully others provide levity to serious situations and dialogues so the book is not 100% heavy drama. Tonya’s co-worker Stephanie is particularly funny and entertaining when she is present in a scene. Gamers and pop culture fans will love the references throughout the book along with the geekiness of several of the characters especially when set against the characters who are clueless about it all. I know I will be re-reading this book again for the compelling story and thought provoking material. I hope KD Williamson has more stories to tell in this series (and set in this location with these or similar characters) or in another genre in the future. I’ll be watching for them and eager to check them out if and when she publishes more books.
