Dust to Dust by Tami Hoag
Dust to Dust by Tami Hoag is the 2nd in the Kovac and Liska detective series.
When Internal Affairs Investigator Andy Paxton is found hanging, nude, from his bedroom ceiling, the brass rush it through as a suicide by gay a cop. His father was “Iron Mike”, a wheeelchair bound legend, and they are don’t want him further embarrassed. Case closed. But Kovac doesn’t really buy it, especially since Paxton was investigating the brutal murder of another gay officer, possibly by another cop. IA is not co-operating, and neither are any of the other cops, but Kovac and Liska are going to push on anyway. Cause that’s what they do. They start by investigating Paxton’s father and brother, but soon the investigation widens, and when another “suicide” occurs, this one is obviously murder. Soon they are investigating a 20-year old case that no one wants re-opened.
It’s a good series. A lot of suspects, a lot of twists. The characters are very well-developed, and their exchanges are priceless.
