Losses by Dave Lager is a story of crime, family, friends, co-workers and so much more. The story centers on Deputy Sheriff Ro Delahanty and her everyday life as a policewoman, a member of SWAT, and a daughter, sister, and friend. She has worked hard to move up the ranks and will not be satisfied until she has top honors in as many different situations that are available. Ro has gone through SWAT training and come out at the top of her class. When she is called to an apparent drug scene with hostages, she is forced to deal with her Irish temper, her strong sense of right and wrong, and the behind-the-scenes workings of the law.
I got caught up in Losses from page one and found that the action went on and on. There are several different stories going on at the same time, making Losses even more exciting as each new turn takes the reader somewhere surprising. Ro is not your standard 'policewoman/female detective’ character which was different and refreshing and allowed for a much stronger storyline than the usual female cop mystery. While I did not read books one or two, I was never lost or left out of the story and it stood perfectly on its own merit. Dave Lager must be congratulated on creating a strong but still very everyday real woman, who just happens to be a deputy sheriff. I highly urge you to read this book and look forward to the future for more Ro Delahanty adventures.
