Dee for Death

A robin's egg-blue book blends the prose of five rookie crime novelists

PJ came from work feeling shitty. Her ex-partner, Stimson, just told her, "You're not shark enough to be in the Internal Affairs Department 'cause you don't go after brother officers the same way as going after perps."

He was a bastard, but he was right. By the book wasn't IAD's way to nail dirty cops. There was neither shark nor piranha in her.... She liked being a cop and a lousy day or a gig was par for the course. She liked nailing the creeps of the world. It wasn't always about getting the bad guys, but she felt real good when that happened. After all, she had stood up in third grade and announced her goal to be a lady cop and they had laughed at her. She had done it."
