Detective Reed Mattox, just three months removed from the death of his partner, has turned invisibility into an art form.
Switching to the K-9, taking over the graveyard shift, moving to a farmhouse miles outside of Columbus, his every move has become predicated on putting as much distance between himself and the outside world as possible.
That distance is shattered though when bodies begin turning up in The Bottoms, the poverty-stricken section of town he is assigned to patrol. Grisly, horrific scenes start to pop up in the middle of the night and the overburdened precinct has no choice but to put Reed on it.
Now operating far outside of his comfort zone with a Belgian Malinois for a partner that attracts attention wherever they go, Reed is forced to unravel the murders, taking him clear across the city and back years in time, to an event that some very influential people will do anything to keep buried...
Review of "Sheikh's bed" by Rachel Cade - the story is good but she has a different Marrakesh in mind (never been there I assume)
Marrakesh is a Moroccan town that is NOT a coastal town but deep inland. It has NO skyscrapers but beautiful traditional terracotta red buildings. And you can NOT drive your carriage through the courtyard of a mosque as people would not like to kneel down and pray in horseshit. In Morocco as a non-muslim you are not even allowed in a mosque apart from the one in Casablanca. It is NOT Dubai. Oh and I sincerely doubt if Iranian women would NOT speak Farsi to each other but revert to Arabic.
But the story itself is a good one with true feelings and thrilling action scenes. Yes also hot erotic ones but also being chased by villains and such. So an entertaining read if you are looking for a novel that has a happy ever after feel.
