Review of Blake Pierce’s 1st Mackenzie White Novel

Although the author puts Mackenzie in a difficult situation, she rises above her circumstances, use her gut and her intelligence to find the
serial killer and rescue –oops, too much. Pierce does have a heavy hand in her having to fight her way to the respect of other policemen. I am sure that even in 1999 women in the traditionally male-dominated law enforcement did face stereotypical comments and attitudes, but it seemed a bit excessive. However, I enjoyed her as a strong main character and will continue to read the series.   4 of 5 stars
