As I read the last page- I knew...
I knew who I would cast as Taylor, Kylie, Luke, Iris, Quinn & Magnolia. I even had some of the minor characters already cast. That being said-"Hello? someone has to make this into a movie! It's perfect!" I wouldn't call this a "beach" book, I would call this an "anywhere" book! I woke up earlier than I had to, just so to see what would happen next! Were there major surprises? Not really. Were there vampires or werewolves? Not a one. I was hooked from the start. Zoey Dean can write a story that sucks you in and makes you care about what happens to these people.
You know what it would be like, your first day as an assisstants assisstant. You understand why Taylor does the things she does (even if you know she shouldn't!).
With that being said...

SOMETIMES PLAYING CAT AND MOUSE IS NO GAME...
Play? Right. My Pride is under fire from all sides, my father's authority is in question, and my lover is in exile. Which means I haven't laid eyes on Marc's gorgeous face in months. And with a new mother and an I-know-everything teenager under my protection, I don't exactly have time to fantasize about ever seeing him again.
Then our long-awaited reunion is ruined by a vicious ambush by strays. Now our group is under attack, Marc is missing, and I will need every bit of skill and smarts to keep my family from being torn apart. Forever.

In 1985, the body of a 14-year-old girl turns up in a Washington, D.C., park, the latest in a series of murders by a killer the media dub "The Night Gardener." T.C. Cook, the aging detective on the case, works with a quiet, almost monomaniacal, focus. Also involved are two young uniformed cops, Gus Ramone, who's diligent, conscientious and unimpressed by heroics, and Dan "Doc" Holiday, an adrenaline junkie who's decidedly less straight.Fast forward 20 years. Detective Ramone, now married with kids of his own, investigates the murder of one of his teenage son's friends. The homicide closely resembles the earlier unsolved Night Gardener murders. Holiday, now an alcoholic chauffeur and bodyguard, follows the case on his own and tracks down Cook, long retired but still obsessed with the original murders. While the three work together toward a suspenseful ending, Pelecanos emphasizes the fallacy of "solving" a murder and explores the ripple effects of violent crime on society
