Twenty-two days after the shooting death of his partner, Detective Patrick Cavanaugh is still waking up in a sweat. He has no intention of taking on a new partner—much less a woman. Unfortunately, the powers that be assign rookie Mary Margaret McKenna—Maggi to her friends—to him, despite his vehement protests. Maggi is determined to get to know him, and loner Patrick is equally determined to keep his secrets.

But Maggi has her own secrets. Internal Affairs has assigned her to go undercover as Patrick's partner to investigate an anonymous claim that he is responsible for his partner's death. When mounting evidence begins to incriminate Patrick's dead partner, they begin to work together to unravel a deadly conspiracy. Very soon their days are filled with dirty cops on the take, and their nights with passionate interludes.

Internal Affair continues the popular Cavanaugh Justice miniseries. The chemistry between Maggi and Patrick sizzles with sexual tension, and the plot is edgy, dark and suspenseful. Ferrarella has penned a guaranteed page-turner! (Dec., 304 pp., $5.99)
