Lost Hills (Eve Ronin #1)

LOST HILLS                                            LEE GOLDBERG

A video of Deputy Eve Ronin’s off-duty arrest of an abusive movie star goes viral, turning her into a popular hero at a time when the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is plagued by scandal. The sheriff, desperate for more positive press, makes Eve the youngest female homicide detective in the department’s history.
Now Eve, with a lot to learn and resented by her colleagues, has to justify her new badge. Her chance comes when she and her burned-out, soon-to-retire partner are called to the blood-splattered home of a missing single mother and her two kids. The horrific carnage screams multiple murder—but there are no corpses.
Eve has to rely on her instincts and tenacity to find the bodies and capture the vicious killer, all while battling her own insecurities and mounting pressure from the media, her bosses, and the bereaved family. It’s a deadly ordeal that will either prove her skills…or totally destroy her.
PAT'S REVIEW

WHAT A STORY FROM BEGINNING TP END THIS CHARACTERS JUMP OFF THE PAGE AND YOU KEEP GOING UNTIL THE END.
YOU ARE INTRODUCED TO EVE RONIN WHO BECAUSE OF AN ARREST OFF DUTY OF A MOVIE STAR HAS NOW GOTTEN HER THE PROMOTION TO ROBBERY HOMICIDE FOR THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY SHERIFF DEPARTMENT. MAINLY BECAUSE THEY NEEDED GOOD PUBLICITY FROM A SCANDAL AT THEIR CENTRAL JAIL, WHICH BY THE WAY IS ALWAYS CRAZY. SHE IS NOW PARTNERED WITH A VETERAN WHO IS COUNTING THE DAYS TO RETIREMENT.
THEY WORK OUT OF SAN FERNANDO VALLEY AND AFTER A VERBAL SHOWDOWN WITH L.A.P.D. DETECTIVES THEY LEAVE THAT SCENE ONLY TO BE CALLED TO WHAT APPEARS TO BE A MORE HORRIFIC SCENE, THE PROBLEM NOBODIES. NOW IT IS UP TO HER, DUNCAN AND TWO OTHER DETECTIVES THAT THEY GIVE HER TO BE IN CHARGE OF TO FIND AND SOLVE THE CASE.
LIKE I SAID THE AUTHOR WILL KEEP YOU GOING, WITH HIS KNOWLEDGE OF THE STREETS WHICH WERE CORRECT, TO THE VERBAL BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN THE OFFICERS GOOD AND BAD. TO HER FINALLY STICKING UP FOR HERSELF TO THE ONES SHE NEEDED TO. THIS IS A WONDERFUL AND FRESH STORY WITH NEW CHARACTERS, AND WHAT I FOUND TO BE MORE REALISTIC THAN OTHER BOOKS THAT PEOPLE TRY TO WRITE ABOUT COPS. THE AUTHOR WILL TIE EVERYTHING TOGETHER AT THE END SO PAY ATTENTION TO THE BEGINNING. A FANTASTIC BOOK! I RECEIVED THIS BOOK FROM NETGALLEY.COM I GAVE IT 5 STARS.
