Grāmatas apraksts no Goodreads/Synopsis from Goodreads:

WHO DO YOU LOVE?
One question, a split-second decision, and Brian Darby lies dead on the kitchen floor. His wife, state police trooper Tessa Leoni, claims to have shot him in self-defense, and bears the bruises to back up her tale. For veteran detective D. D. Warren it should be an open-and-shut case. But where is their six-year-old daughter?
AND HOW FAR WOULD YOU GO . . .
As the homicide investigation ratchets into a frantic statewide search for a missing child, D. D. Warren must partner with former lover Bobby Dodge to break through the blue wall of police brotherhood, seeking to understand the inner workings of a trooper’s mind while also unearthing family secrets. Would a trained police officer truly shoot her own husband? And would a mother harm her own child?
. . . TO SAVE HER?
For Tessa Leoni, the worst has not yet happened. She is walking a tightrope, with nowhere to turn, no one to trust, as the clock ticks down to a terrifying deadline. She has one goal in sight, and she will use every ounce of her training, every trick at her disposal, to do what must be done. No sacrifice is too great, no action unthinkable. A mother knows who she loves. And all others will be made to pay.
Love you more . . .

Mana recenzija/My review

Policistes Tesas Leoni dzīve vienudien apgriežas kājām gaisā, kad viņa atgriežas mājās pēc maiņas, bet meita Sofija tur vairs nav, bet vīrs Braiens ar pašas dienesta ieroci tiek nogalināts viņas acu priekšā. Ar šaubīgu pagātni un īsti nezinot, kurš vēl iesaistīts, Tesa neuzdrošinās uzticēties saviem kolēģiem vai likuma aizstāvjiem vispār.

Šajā lietā varam baudīt kā Vorena un Bobijs apvienojas kopīgam darbam. Abi, īpaši jau par Vorenu, atraduši otro pusīti, bet tomēr jāuzmanās vienuviet esot, jo agrāk jau pirms pirmās sērijas grāmatas bijuši pāris, bet, saprotams, darbs katram bijis nozīmīgāks. Vorenai, ņemot vērā ar jauno sevis stāvokli un cenšanos aprast ar domu, lieta izvēršas citādāka. Viņas mērķis nostādīts uz Tesu un nepavisam negribas noticēt Tesas notikumu versijai.

Apbrīnojami, ko gan Tesa gatava paveikt, ja runa ir par briesmās esošo meitu, ko visticamāk citādāk nepieļautu pat domās. Bet, ejot arvien tālāk, pastāv drauds zaudēt vairāk no savas cilvēcības. Stāsts ietver sevī arī problemātiskas tēmas, kā aizraušanas ar azartspēlēm, neskatoties uz augošiem zaudējumiem plus vēl aizņemšanās no nepareiziem avotiem.

Vorenas sērijas grāmatas nezaudē savu šarmu ar katru nākamo grāmatu sērijā un spēj joprojām noturēt interesi, nezaudējot spriedzi un mistēriju, cerams arī atsevišķās Tesas sērijas grāmatas (pēc Goodreads datiem vēl divas ira) ir līdzīgas.

                                                                                                                                                

State police troopers Tessa Leoni’s life turns upside down when after a long shift she comes home to find her daughter Sophie missing and her husband Brian at gunpoint and then killed with her own gun in front of her. With suspicious past and not really knowing who else is involved Tessa doesn’t dare to trust her colleagues or other law enforcement.

This case gives the reader a chance to enjoy the investigative work when Bobby Dodge and D.D. Warren join together. Both of them have found a significant other but still as once ex-couple (before the first book in the series) and realizing that both of them enjoyed the work more. For Warren this case turns out to be something more as she tries to accustom with her new condition. Her target from the beginning is Tessa as she doesn’t buy her story.

It’s amazing what Tessa is willing to do and how far to go when her daughter is in danger, and probably what she didn’t even thought capable of before. But going further and further there are risks to lose more and more from your humanity. The book contains problematic themes as gambling even when your losses are increasing plus borrowing from wrong people.

Detective D.D. Warren series as it goes on doesn’t still can be interesting and not lose its mystery  and suspense, hopefully that’s the same for Tessa Leoni series. According to Goodreads two more books in that series.
