"Sid and Ronnie Abel are a first-rate husband-and-wife detective team, both retirees of the LAPD. Ed and Nicole Hoyt are married assassins-for-hire living in the San Fernando Valley. Except for deadly aim with a handgun, the two couples have little in common--until they are both hired to do damage control on the same murder case.

I love me some Thomas Perry. I especially love Thomas Perry with entirely new characters. And in this case he's got couples. One white hat couple vs. one black hat couple and he does this new idea total justice. It's a nice nice read from beginning to end. ( )

Thomas Perry can be relied upon to deliver solid mysteries. Although often billed as thrillers, to me they don't fit the description well as the outcome is usually reliably certain. This one was intriguing as it contains two sets, maybe even three, of protagonists. (I began to feel a certain sympathy for the thieves who, after all, were just trying to retire.) One set is the team of ex-cops now searching for the killer of a man who was more (or less, depending on your POV) than appearances. The other set is a pair of assassins who have been hired to kill the first team. It all comes together in a glorious denouement, although frankly the violence and over-specificity of brand-name weapons does nothing for me. Perry's originality and character development, on the other hand, do. Good read. ( )

A stand-alone by the author of the Jane Whitefield series.
Two couples in the LA area, one couple are retired cops turned PIs; the other couple are killers-for-hire.

Enjoyable. ( )

This is a really good murder mystery. Lots of explosions, gun fights, killings and a few twist and turns. Very well written and entertaining. Oh the webs we weave. If you like murder mysteries then pick this one up. ( )

I always enjoy Perry books. This one, however, wasn't a Jane Whitfield mystery but involved 2 ex-cops, mature, married, PI's hired, by a corporation, to investigate a murder that morphs into something a lot more than expected. Most of the time they are pitted against another married couple, but these are assassins.

Perry develops the characters well, each couple, and also it is set in LA which figures in the story almost as a character too. The plot line evolves broadly but never too complex.

Another great Perry read. ( )

The man floated in darkness, the water buoying him and washing him along the concrete channel, slowly at first, but then steadily increasing his speed as hours passed and the heavy spring rain splashed on the pavement a few feet above and flowed into storm drains to augment the current.
