Booker: Dead Heat by John Mefford (Booker #6)

A new breed of killer has hit Dallas. The victims? They bleed blue. And the brotherhood is calling in the cavalry: one Booker T. Adams, PI.

Excommunicated from the Dallas Police Department for refusing to overlook conduct unbefitting an officer, Booker has every reason to slam the door shut when the chief pleads for his assistance. But Booker can’t turn his back on the community he’s always felt drawn to protect, even if it means getting in bed with someone who tried to ruin his life.

As pandemonium floods the city from the inside out, Booker chases an invisible plague. He can’t stop what he can’t see. And then the unthinkable happens. Another killing…and this one guts him.

Driven by an eternal camaraderie he’d once shared with his long-time partner, Booker shifts into overdrive to end this sinister game, some sort of sick vigilante justice.

A vengeful fury of his own takes hold. And the damned can hear him coming.

Have I mentioned that I love this series? While the Booker series does have its dark and twisted side, even the general crime drama reader will become hooked if read in order. The characters become real and you'll get attatched. You'll worry about them and occcasionally want to smack them for decisions and actions you, the reader, know will not turn out well. At parts, I also laughed out loud.  (dumbass. a**wipe in the house!)
Booker was an honest cop. That sense of value got him black balled and unceremoniously TOSSED from the Dallas force.  Fortunately, he still has a few trustworthy contacts from that life,
or so he believes, but we are learning nothing is ever as simple or clear as it seems.
When the Chief of DPD secretly hires Booker to hunt down a cop killer, you know there are enemies and danger on all sides, from ALL directions.
The deeper Booker gets into the case, the more complex it becomes and it hits very close to home.  The entire force is stymied but Chief Ligon puts heat on Booker for immediate results.
Soon it is not only cops being killed. Is this someone on a vendetta?
There definitely seems to be a masterplan and a hitlist.
(Although this killer doesn't always follow the plan.)  

With an ending you won't see coming that leaves you asking what comes next?

I did receive this book in exchange for an unbiased review.
