#1 New York Times bestselling author Stuart Woods delivers a riveting thriller that introduces his first female protagonist, Deputy Chief of Police Holly Barker.

Forced into early retirement at thirty-seven, smart, attractive, and fiercely independent Major Holly Barker trades in her bars as a military cop for the badge of deputy chief of police in Orchid Beach, Florida. But below the sunny surface of this sleepy, well-to-do island town lies an evil that escalates into the cold-blooded murder of one of Holly's new colleagues.

An outsider, Holly has little to go on for answers and no one to help her—except Daisy, a Doberman of exceptional intelligence and loyalty that becomes her companion and protector. The closer Holly gets to the truth, the more she knows that it'll take one smart dog with guts to sniff out this killer—before he can catch her first.

This novel begins with our heroine, Holly Barker, a U.S. Army Major as a spectator in a courtroom. She had been a witness for the prosecution in an attempted rape and sexual harassment suit against her commanding officer. The verdict? Not guilty of all charges.

Holly tells her father that her career in the army is now effectively over, as she can no longer expect to be promoted. She tells her Dad, who is a retired army vet, that she could a job on a police force somewhere and start a new career.

She has dinner with her Dad and Chet Marley, also a vet, and Dad's friend, whom Dad has told of Holly's desire to join a police force. Chet, who is chief of the Orchid Beach, FL P. D., offers Holly a job as Ass't chief, to fill an existing vacancy. Holly accepts his offer and drives to Orchid Beach, pulling her trailer behind her, pulls into a trailer park that had been recommended to her, and makes it her home.

When she arrives at the Orchid Beach P. D. the next morning to start work, she learns that Chet has been shot , and is in the local hospital, hear death.

The ensuing investigations; into Chet's shooting and the murder of Chet's buddy, into spying and treachery from within the police department, and the investigation of a secretive nearby community could have made this a very exciting novel to read.

Unfortunately, many detrimental factors start to appaear, and continue sporadically throughout the novel, such as; extended descriptions of mundane events and activities, continued use of titles and first and last names, etc. that are boring and require skimming to find content.

Fortunately, these detrimental factors are a fairly minimal distraction, and this novel is still a very good read.

Stuart Woods is best known for his Stone Barrington series of novels about a wealthy Manhattan lawyer / investigator whose life is a whirlwind of complex murder cases, glamorous women and dinners at Elaine's. But Holly Barker, who is introduced to readers in Orchid Beach, may be his greatest (and certainly most appealing) protagonist. A retired Army officer turned police chief of Orchid Beach, a wealthy Florida resort community, Holly is beautiful, courageous, sexy and resourceful: the type of woman many women would like to be (and many men would like to be with).

The plot of Orchid Beach revolves Holly's dawning realization that the ultra-luxurious gated golf community in the heart of her jurisdiction is far more than it seems. But what makes the book such a great read are the finely-drawn characters: Holly herself; Jackson, the town lawyer, with whom she becomes romantically involved; and Holly's father Ham, a retired Army sergeant who moves to Orchid Beach to be near his daughter and assists in her investigations (the back-and-forth between Holly and Ham alone is worth the price of admission). Even the villains in the book are terrifyingly convincing characters. And or course, no review of Orchid Beach would be complete without mentioning a canine character, Daisy -- a trained Doberman Pinscher who becomes Holly's companion, police dog and all-around BFF.

I really enjoyed the highly realistic of portrayal of Holly moving to Orchid Beach and starting a new life and career: finding a place to live, dealing with the local town council, and winning the trust of the other police officers in her department. And while the mystery at the center of the plot is not really a surprise, I enjoyed the investigative details and exciting denouement when Holly bags her perps and breaks up a huge criminal enterprise.

Highly entertaining, this book is the proverbial "great beach read" -- a genre of which Mr. Woods is indisputably one of the masters.

This book was fabulous, and a different read than I am used to. Police Procedural that will keep you guessing until the very last few pages. Very surprising ending. Since I am from Florida, the fact that it takes place here was an added bonus. I will definitely be reading the rest of the Holly Barker series. Highly recommended.
