Description

Former homicide detective and star of Investigation Discovery, Joe Kenda follows his authentic and fascinating debut novel with First Do No Harm, another addictive tale of crime and punishment as only he can tell it.

Detectives Kenda and Wilson must track down the source of this killer heroin before anyone else can overdose—and stop Moreland before he can escape the long arm of the law.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing this book in exchange for an honest review.
Wow, what a book! I love Joe Kenda's sense of humor and the way he writes his fiction books as if the events as if they really happened. (His nonfiction books are great too!)
This book had me hooked from the start. There were a lot of characters to keep straight, which sometimes I have trouble with. But this book was so engaging, I was able to keep track of who was who.
Highly recommend if you want a somewhat gritty mystery novel.
