Minneapolis has more than its share of interesting cops (Lucas Davenport of the John Sandford thrillers, for one), and Tami Hoag's homicide dicks, Sam Kovac and Nikki Liska, join the club in this thoughtful and surprisingly moving novel of dirty cops and cover-ups. Internal Affairs investigator Andy Fallon is a suicide--or is he? The word around the department is that Andy, son of Iron Mike Fallon, an old hero of Sam's, killed himself because Mike turned his back on him when Andy told him he was gay. Or maybe it was because a lover dumped him, or even (snicker, snicker) a perverted sexual practice gone wrong. That's the gossip, but Sam feels he owes it to Mike to investigate.
To wrap it all up, Dust to Dust is a well-crafted thriller, a psychological hailstorm full of intrigue and suspense. I'm patiently waiting on the next Kovak/Liska installment entitled "Prior Bad Acts". A thrill-a-minute-ride of a book! Go grab a copy! Cheerz!
