The senseless death of their brother-in-law, Mike Lynch, has left the Sullivan boys reeling. Still coping with the death of their brother, Jimmy, they are pulling together to help their sister Kay deal with the loss of her husband as she slips into depression.
During an outing with Kay’s twin girls, Patrick Sullivan, a new captain at the Chicago Police Department, comes face-to-face with a woman who gets his body tingling all over. Little does he know he’ll see this woman again all too soon–in the courtroom.
C.J. Demarco, also known as, Charlie, is a shining star of a defense attorney at Schotz, Pearson and Freemont. When she gets a perp off on a technicality, Patrick’s department isn’t looking too good and he has to answer for it to the media. But he has much bigger issues to deal with. Someone is brutally killing prostitutes and dumping them in the trash in the city’s alleys. The Garbage Man Murderer case is going to take all of Pat’s limited resources to nail; not an easy task considering the recent budget cuts.
Despite working on seemingly opposite sides of the law, Charlie and Pat can’t deny their attraction to each other. When Charlie is set to defend a high-profile case, Pat can’t believe she would be involved in trying to get such a creep off. But Charlie isn’t about to reveal why she does the type of work she does or the reason getting too involved with Pat scares the hell out of her. Their budding romance is threatened. And for Charlie, one mistake, could be a fatal one.
After the death of his brother-in-law Mike, Patrick and his whole family is trying hard to come to terms with his absence and helping is lovely sister Kat to cope. In way of helping, each of the Sullivan brothers, takes Kat;s twins out and when it is Pat’s turn, the twins urge to be taken to the amusement park. The twins won’t come back though without seeing the play, and that’s where Pat for the first time sees Charlie (the ruthless C.J.Demarco) who is filling for her twin, Emily. Little does he know that this gorgeous women, with whom he is slowly falling in love, is the one whom he will have to battle in the courtrooms.
Charlie on the other hand because of her families financial woes (which is due to her mistakes) is stuck with the law firm which represents some bad people. She is attracted to Patrick, but her line of work makes them more enemies than lovers.
When Patrick is made the Captain for hunting down the Garbage Can Murderer, who brutally kills prostitutes and then dumps there bodies in the trash-cans, little does he know that his love and trust in Charlie will be put to the ultimate test.
Before starting this book, I had no idea this was 4th book in the Men in Uniform; The Sullivan Boys series. This books works as a standalone, so you don’t have to worry about reading the books in order. You cannot help love Pat, the head-strong, good-looking Police Captain. I think another thing that makes Pat so appealing is his love for his family and there values, just love that. Charlie’s and Emily’s relationship is so lovely and nice. There are moments in the book (towards the end), that I really felt for Charlie, behind that strong facade is loving, vulnerable women, who loves simple things in life.
I think the mystery is well done, but the ending is a bit predictable and I found that the love between C.J. and Pat looked a bit rushed too. But this is a quick with a nice ending, something I am in the mood for right now ( are you not also?). After reading this, I really want to check out other books in the series as well. And the final installemnt is also coming out very soon.
