IN THE ARMS OF THE LAW
Working a John Doe murder isn't unusual for Detective Andi Matthews, but partnering with junior officer Gabe Thunderhawk is. He's as hardheaded and competitive as Andi herself, so the attraction that springs up between them is surprising. Andi has no intention of falling victim to Gabe's legendary charm; she's more focused on identifying the victim, who may be a long-lost Fortune, and catching a killer. In the Arms of the Law (3) has a strong basic plot, and the procedural details are quite interesting. But the development of Peggy Moreland's romance seems rushed, and the characters are a little uneven—one minute, Andi's furious with Gabe for kissing her, the next she's in bed with him.
