Wicked Game by Suzanne Jenkins is book 6 in the Greektown Stories series. Working girl Laura Jerzewski has fallen hard for Chris Hemmingway, a vice cop. But Chris has another obsession, an old house he’s trying to renovate. Chris and Laura met while she was trying to keep her visitation rights with her son and fell in love almost straight away. Chris wants to protect her, but something - or someone – is standing in their way. Randall White is Laura’s pimp, and he doesn’t want her to give up her job. Even worse, he has certain law enforcement officials in his pocket. Can Laura escape her past life? Will she and Chris make a go of things? Or is Randall White too strong for both of them?

Although Wicked Game by Suzanne Jenkins is the sixth in this series and I haven’t read any of the others, I felt comfortable reading this as a standalone book. That said, it’s still best to read the books in order. This is for adults only, given the graphic murder descriptions and the sexual scenes. It is a thoroughly enjoyable story, a little different from the usual police procedurals. This is a story of people who overcome all the odds to achieve their aims, and it’s also a heart-thumping thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat all the way through. The characters are people you can easily get involved with in an emotional sense, particularly the two main ones. They are incredibly likable characters with a depth I haven’t seen in many books recently. I guarantee this book will keep you on your toes with your heart in your mouth at times. The subject is not one you see written about too often, but this topic has been handled well, creating a story that all fans of thrillers and police procedurals absolutely must read.
