Title: The Devil's Necktie
Author: John Lansing
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Synopsis: Retired Inspector Jack Bertolino had strict rules when dealing with confidential informants. But Mia had the kind of beauty that could make a grown man contemplate leaving his wife, his job, and his kids. After a passionate night together, Mia is found murdered, and Jack is the lead suspect.
Facing threats from the LAPD, the 18th Street Angels, and a Columbian drug cartel, Jack delves deeper into the seedy world of drug dealers and Murderers. Jack is torn between fearing for his life and seeking revenge for his slain lover... either way the body count will rise.
My Thoughts: Lansing is an incredible story teller. By the end of the first chapter I knew I was in for a good treat. One evening Jack receives an unexpected call from a former Confidential Informant. The chain of events that follow send Jack looking for Mia's killer(s), outwitting those that think he killed her, and trying to get the local PD to stop looking at him and find the real killer(s). There are no disappointments with this read there is sex, murder, and revenge.
