A betrayed wife and dedicated mother suddenly forced to raise her six-month-old daughter alone, Melanie Vargas is also an ambitious, hard-working professional who has had to bite and claw for recognition in the federal prosecutor's office. Then, while strolling with her baby girl on a steamy New York night, Melanie stumbles onto the kind of high-profile case that could make a career: the burning townhouse of a wealthy former prosecutor, its owner's tortured, murdered corpse smoldering within. Melanie Vargas wants this chance -- she needs it -- and she'll do whatever it takes to get it.

But a headline-grabbing opportunity of a lifetime could cost Melanie more than she ever imagined, as it pulls her closer to a dangerous affair with a secretive, enigmatic FBI agent -- and closer still to a sadistic human monster moving expertly through the city's darkest shadows.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The First in an Awesome Legal/Thriller Series I love Michele Martinez's books - this is the first one in her Melanie Vargas series which currently has 4 titles. For unknown reasons I've been reading them backwards but they are all the same high quality. Melanie Vargas is federal prosecutor in New York City who is half Puerto Rican and grew up in a tough neighbourhood without a father. She takes crime fighting personally and spends as much time out with the cops and investigators on her cases as she does in the courtroom. She is smart and strong and tough and not afraid to stand up for herself. Unfortunately, her personal life is not going so well. She has a 6 month old baby and a cheating husband. She is trying to figure out how to work, and get the baby taken care of and whether to let go of her marriage. These books remind me of the best of Lisa Scottoline and Linda Fairstein and even Tess Gerritsen. I love them!
