Rachel gave her a gentle smile. ‘I hate to say it, but you’ll be identifying her at the morgue by the end of your shift’. – Sinister Intent by Karen M Davis (p 10)

I picked up police procedural Sinister Intent and if you like crime thrillers, this one certainly jumps into the action from the get-go. Bikie wars, suspicious colleagues, revenge and retribution … so far the action has not let up! The reviews I’ve seen have been good, too. Here’s a blurb for a bit more info:

Sinister IntentFor eight years Lexie Rogers has been a uniform cop in Sydney’s red light district, Kings Cross. Having survived a violent knife attack, she’s witnessed far more than most cops her age. Now she’s back at work as the newest member of the Bondi Junction detectives’ office and ready to start again. One of her first jobs is to execute a search warrant at a bikie clubhouse, one of the two local gangs in the eastern suburbs. What she uncovers begins a chilling investigation into a vicious world where loyalty is deadly and unwavering and can’t be bought . . . Or can it? Lexie forms an unlikely alliance with one of the bikies, who’s realised his family’s in danger. But what neither of them knows is that Lexie is the one who’s in too deep. She knows too much.
