Blurb; The DNA evidence should have made the rape a slam dunk case…
But after the evidence disappeared from a police locker, the black man accused of brutally raping a popular actor’s daughter walked free. Hired by the actor, private eye Dan Reno’s job seemed simple enough: discover who took the DNA, and why. Problem is, from the beginning of the investigation, neither Reno, the South Lake Tahoe police, nor anyone else have any idea what the motivation could be to see ghetto thug Duante Tucker get away with the crime. Not even Reno’s best friend, fellow investigator Cody Gibbons, has a clue.
When Reno and Gibbons tail Tucker, they learn the rapist is linked to various criminals and even a deserter from the U.S. Marine Corps. But they still can’t tell who would want him set free, and for what reason?
Things get murkier when Tucker visits an Arabic restaurant whose owners are suspected terrorists. Then Cody’s ex-boss, a San Jose police captain, is found to be dallying with Tucker’s sister.
The clues continue to build until Reno and Cody find themselves targeted for death. That tells Reno he’s getting close, so he and Gibbons put the pedal to the metal. The forces of evil are running out of time, and the action reaches a boiling point before an explosive conclusion that reveals a sinister plot and motivations that Reno never imagined.
My Review; Happy Publication Day! Hard Prejudice is book five in the brilliant Dan Reno series. I have been enjoying this series from the start and would highly recommend this whole series to you all. This series is best read in order.
It was great to be back in Dan’s world alongside Cody working with him aswell. Its been fun watching them both work and grow together throughout the series. Will they catch the rapist? Fast paced, thrilling story. Loved reading this one. It does contain long chapters though! It is a tough story to read in certain parts, with dark scenes as the story is dealing with a rape… Nevertheless, I still enjoyed reading this story and look forward to the final chapter of this series.
