Detective Vic Varralo of the Glendale, California police has become a mystery fan favorite (Run to Evil, My Name is Death, Detective's Due). Varralo and his colleagues emerge as the suburban counterpart of the 87th Precinct and both forces vie with London's Gideon. All three series employ the popular police method detail meshed with the continuing personal stories of the central characters. This time Varralo tracks through a set of murders committed during burglaries. Convenient coincidences solve the crimes, but that's only a misdemeanor on the part of an author readers will willingly forgive.
