SLICE  
May 1, 2014
Author:  Mary Jo Kim
Category:  Fiction: Mystery/Crime
Description:  Meet Detective Micki Li.
Mom, widow, inner-city baseball coach, and proud veteran of the U.S. Army.
The only Korean-born officer in her division of the Boston P.D.
She stands out because she's outstanding.

Nothing shakes up Micki Li. Not even the bloodiest crime scene.

She's always the calmest one in the room, whether honoring her mother-in-law's traditions at their Chinatown apartment, or mentoring high-risk teens on the Red Sox, an inner city baseball team, or building a relationship with her Italian-American boyfriend in the tony North End.

So when a low-level sex offender is found stabbed to death and castrated in his Boston home, the case is just another report on the police blotter. Micki and her macho partner, Arnie Pepper, are busy working the trail of a potential child abductor. The target was the little brother of a player on the Red Sox. Big bro Dante fired a shot at the stranger.

But soon the same grisly fate befalls other convicted pedophiles, while the mysterious stalker is glimpsed in neighborhoods throughout the city. Are the two crimes connected?

With the public beginning to panic and politicians calling for action, the police chief assigns his best detective to the high-profile case.

Micki.

She's up against a vicious and brilliant killer, an investigative TV reporter who has way too much access to the crime scenes, a victims' advocacy group that may be hiding its own brand of vigilante justice, and her worries as the mother of five-year-old daughter.
