Risky Behavior

L.A. Witt and Cari Z. Riptide, $17.99 trade paper (309p) ISBN 978-1-62649-565-4

In this scorching-hot crime drama, Witt and Z create oil-and-water characters who find surprising ways to overcome their differences. Darren Corliss is a brand new detective with a sterling record and family connections to support his career. Andreas Ruffner has decades behind the badge and a reputation for putting results ahead of ethics. The only thing they have in common is a commitment to upholding the law. Ruffner has dedicated his life to one single case, at the expense of his health, his family life, and his professional future. When they’re teamed up, Darren has the thankless task of earning the trust of a man who is paranoid for all the right reasons, while Andreas must protect the rookie who’s too young to be wise. The plot is fast and harrowing, the romance is a slow burn, and the conclusion is as satisfying as it is thrilling. (May)
