If you are looking for a great crime read, then run out and grab a copy of Robert Jeffreys’ ‘The Final Cut’
Set in the 1960s, Detective Robert Cardilini is fighting his own demons. His return to work after a suspension has not been a smooth transition. He is newly partnered with Lorriane Spencer. She’s young, eager, and of course female, so she’s has had to fight hard to be where she is.
Cardilini and Spencer are given Domestic Violence cases to work on. Cases that really are not taken seriously by the courts and really feel like a waste of time. If a husband beats his wife, it’s treated as her fault, and convictions are far and few.
Things change when Cardilini and Spencer are sent to yet another DV case and then discover that all is not as it seems. The woman who is strapped to a chair and in need of medical assistance, doesn’t seem to be the victim that she first appeared to be.
As they dig deeper they discover that this is not really a DV case at all, but that they have stumbled into a world where a sadistic, dangerous, and often deadly game is being played out.
Both Spencer and Cardilini do their own digging for information and both keep information from each other which leads to life altering events for them both.
I really enjoyed reading this book and found it very easy to read. This book would make a wonderful gift for those crime reader fanatics.
