Blurb: The bizarre murder of a parish priest at a New York bondage club opens Nikki Heat's most thrilling and dangerous case so far, pitting her against New York's most vicious drug lord, an arrogant CIA contractor, and a shadowy death squad out to gun her down. And that is just the tip of an iceberg that leads to a dark conspiracy reaching all the way to the highest levels of the NYPD.
But when she gets too close to the truth, Nikki finds herself disgraced, stripped of her badge, and out on her own a target for killers, with nobody she can trust. Except maybe the one man in her life who's not out a cop: reporter Jameson Rook.
In the midst of New York's coldest winter in a hundred years, there's one thing Nikki is determined to prove: Heat Rises.
Thoughts: I loved this book. It took me a while to get into, but when it kicked in, bloody hell it was good. I loved the twists and turns, parts of it made me gasp and get goosebumps. I loved the little hints to various parts of the series and would love to think that there are perhaps a few hints as to what is coming in the show. Brilliant read, couldn't put it down. Did anyone else think it was quite racy?
