Brooklyn Busted : NYPD Detective Madison Knox is having a bad week. She recently learned that her boyfriend is still married. Then, her best friend Amy Knox, calls to tell her she thinks she murdered somebody. Things turn personal when Amy fears her “victim’s” brother, a drug-dealing mob boss, is out to get her, and Madison finds herself in the middle of things.
What follows is a race against time to solve the murder and stop a nation-wide drug-dealing operation. Oh, and there’s one more thing. Madison is on the hunt for her long-lost mother who she fears is working with a serial killer.
“I just wanted to see the new precinct,” I said, trying to keep my voice even.
“I’ll bet.” Corker turned to Carmine and Lenny. “You two squirrels go find a tree to climb, or I’ll have you demonstrate PT for the top dogs with Hock.”
“Hock” was Sergeant Hock, a former drill instructor, who did physical training for Precinct Blue. Rumor had it he’d studied at the Marquis de Sade School of Torture.
Corker turned back to me. “What’s the doc say about when you can return to work?”
“Probably a couple months, but I’ll be back sooner if he releases me.”
A scoff. “I’ll bet.”
After the lieutenant scurried off, probably to pucker up to his superiors, Max cut her eyes in Corker’s direction and said to me, “I’d take as much time as you need, Mads. Corker’s gonna make it his number one priority to make your life miserable when you get back.”
“Yeah,” I said, seeing that Laverne Fenny and Penny Kurtz were headed our way. I lowered my voice and said, “Sharks in the water.”
“You got some nerve showing your face ‘round here,” Laverne said, when she and her sidekick stopped in front of me. She folded her arms and looked at Penny. “Maybe life in the boneyard ain’t so good. I heard that FBI guy she was dating is still married.”
