Synopsis: What happens when you make a deal with the devil? You lose your soul, 30-year-old Javari Haynes learns the hard way, when he embarks on a partnership that results in his life ending tragically.
Detective LaKisha ‘Kisha’ Sherman has unexpectedly been transferred to the 33rd precinct in Chicago, Illinois, much to her disappointment. The officers on staff are notorious for blundering investigations quiet frequently, so the precinct has become a laughingstock among its peers and community, especially amongst criminals. Her new captain insists that this transfer will be a steppingstone in her blossoming career, but it doesn’t help that since arriving in Chicago she has yet to receive a viable case, instead she’s been stuck behind a desk doing paperwork. All that changes when a body is dug up in an unlikely place and knowing the importance of this investigation, Kisha is tasked with solving the case. With no eyewitnesses or clues Kisha vows to have this case solved in a short amount of time.
Trevon ‘Tre’ Washington is a local divorce attorney and unknowingly the last person to see his best friend Javari Haynes alive, but because of the two men’s differing schedules, Tre is oblivious to the fact that Javari simply vanished when he dropped him off after a housewarming party. So, he is shocked to learn during an interrogation with the very attractive Detective Sherman, that his best friend has met an untimely demise, he refuses to believe and is under the impression that Javari has left town on winter break from his construction job, to get a much needed break. He doesn’t know how wrong he is.
All though the interrogation is awkward to say the least, there is an attraction between the two of them, but Kisha downplays the whole thing, because a romance is the last thing Kisha feels she needs on her first major case in a new city, so she puts Tre on the back burner so that she doesn’t get distracted.
But when an unexpected event brings Kisha and Tre together, will they act on their feelings towards one another, or will Kisha continue her all work and no play policy ignoring Tre completely? And will Kisha be successful in bringing a turnaround to the 33rd precinct, because they need this turn ASAP.

Review: This book was good read and I enjoyed it. Full of action, drama suspense that kept me wondering what's happening next. Definitely, didn't expect all the twist and turns towards the end, made it all the more enjoyable reading. Very detailed and descriptive that builded up the storyline leading to how Detective Sherman was gonna solve this case. Can't wait to see how it all unfolds. Good job Lashaye.
