Certain Dark Things - Abbott, Erica
The page-turning follow-up to the sizzling Fragmentary Blue...
When off-duty officer Chris Andersen interrupts an assault and uses deadly force, Internal Affairs Inspector C.J. St. Clair is assigned to the case. Her first point of contact is Captain Alex Ryan, Andersen’s boss... and C.J.’s new girlfriend.
Candidates for District Attorney would love to use the case to bolster their platforms, and both sides pressure C.J. to find in favor of their version of events. Alex fears that Chris, an open lesbian, will be hung out to dry by Colorado politics, regardless.
As the media and political tensions escalate, Alex offers moral support to Chris while friction between her and C.J. rises as well. Though they both knew their relationship would be tested by their work, neither of them thought it would be this hard.
