And Happy Tuesday! Over the weekend I finished up One Last Thing by Rebecca St. James and Nancy Rue. Check out my review – great book, tough topic. And now I’ve started another NetGalley read – Canary by Duane Swierczynsk. Has me hooked so far about 20% in – can’t wait to see where it goes. Click on book or see description below.
“Kevin’s stomach sinks. Sure, he probably meant the words when he spoke them. Doesn’t mean he actually wants to hear the words that will follow. Instantly his mind sprints to dark places.”

What do you think? Thanks for coming by – please leave your teaser in the comments!
It’s dangerous enough when an ordinary college girl turns confidential informant. Even more dangerous when she’s smarter than the kingpins, killers, and cops who control her.
Honors student Sarie Holland is busted by the local police while doing a favor for her boyfriend. Unwilling to betray him but desperate to avoid destroying her future, Sarie has no choice but to become a “CI”—a confidential informant.
Philly narcotics cop Ben Wildey is hungry for a career-making bust. The detective thinks he’s found the key in Sarie: her boyfriend scores from a mid-level dealer with alleged ties to the major drug gangs.
Sarie turns out to be the perfect CI: a quick study with a shockingly keen understanding of the criminal mind. But Wildey, desperate for results, pushes too hard and inadvertently sends the 19-year-old into a death trap, leaving Sarie hunted by crooked cops and killers alike with nothing to save her—except what she’s learned during her harrowing weeks as an informant.
Which is bad news for the police and the underworld. Because when it comes to payback, CI #1373 turns out to be a very quick study…
