A drug raid goes completely sideways which leads to Detective Ivan Bekker killing a man in self defense. This is the first time Ivan’s been forced to kill in the line of duty. Per regulations his boss, Inspector Martelli, puts Ivan on leave but then sends him on an undercover assignment, off the books. There’s a possible mole in the department dealing with the man Ivan’s told to investigate.
According to a source college student Parker Wakefield is in deep with the Russian Mafia in Toronto and suspected of distributing large quantities of marijuana. Luckily, it seems Parker is looking for a roommate, the perfect cover for Ivan to get up close and personal.
Almost immediately Ivan is drawn to the shy, younger man. It’s hard to believe the sunny tempered, seemingly guileless student is mixed up with the mafia, let alone selling pot. It’s even harder to keep his hands off Parker, especially when he’s pretending to be straight. Feeling empathy for a suspect is not acceptable and killing a man has given Ivan nightmares. Awake or asleep Ivan can’t get a break and he’s wearing down fast.
Duty, honor, and sacrifice are brought into the light in Cover Up. Intelligent characters, a plotline that keeps the reader engaged, and a charming, sweet innocent combine to make Cover Up a truly entertaining story. Characters from the previous story make an appearance, however this is a standalone. Cover Up is tense and captivating and hard to put down.
