While I was browsing in the “M’s” at my library, I stumbled on this series by Richard Montanari.
It’s set in Philadelphia and features detective Jessica Balzano (who is a mom to a toddler and is a prize fighter in her spare time) and Kevin Byrne (who has a surprising talent that I won’t reveal). It’s the classic pairing of the new, fresh rookie and the seasoned, seen-it-all veteran.
So far, I’ve read two of the series and I have more on my shelf to read. Montanari has me intrigued with the characters and I want to see how they develop and what happens in their lives.
