210. True Blue by David Baldacci...

November 20, 2009
true blueAbout the book:
Mason "Mace" Perry was a firebrand cop on the D.C. police force until she was kidnapped and framed for a crime. She lost everything-her badge, her career, her freedom-and spent two years in prison. Now she's back on the outside and focused on one mission: to be a cop once more. Her only shot to be a true blue again is to solve a major case on her own, and prove she has the right to wear the uniform. But even with her police chief sister on her side, she has to work in the shadows: A vindictive U.S. attorney is looking for any reason to send Mace back behind bars. Then Roy Kingman enters her life.

Roy is a young lawyer who aided the poor until he took a high-paying job at a law firm in Washington. Mace and Roy meet after he discovers the dead body of a female partner at the firm. As they investigate the death, they start uncovering surprising secrets from both the private and public world of the nation's capital.

Soon, what began as a fairly routine homicide takes a terrifying and unexpected turn-into something complex, diabolical, and possibly lethal.

drey's thoughts:
True Blue is a fast-paced read into the life of a former cop, and (mainly) her need to find out who'd set her up. But she gets in over her head when it appears that all of the dark and shadowy organizations that exist to "protect" us, somehow are involved--both in her past, and in the current murders. And Mace has to hurry up and figure this one out, before they get to her, Roy, and her sister.

Fans of the suspense/thriller genre will dig this latest Baldacci offering. I thought that Mace was just a little too hard, but maybe that's what happens when a former cop spends two years in prison.

I just finished this one too! I really liked it. While you thought Mace was a little hard, I thought Roy was too passive! Fun read though! Another good one from Baldacci as far as I'm concerned!
