13 Under the Wire by Gil Reavill. Published by Alibi

10 years ago, sheriff’s deputy Layla Remington was still a cadet in training with the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department when she learned of the death of close friend Simon Loushane in Tijuana. She only went to his fabulously wealthy family’s mansion to help straighten out his estate, but she uncovered some nasty secrets about his family. Secrets that had everything to do with Simon’s death. Today Layla is a detective with the LASD and Los Angeles is literally on fire, the result of a huge riot. After making a huge mistake after working a 36 hour shift, Layla falls back to the staging area that law enforcement has set up – the decaying Loushane family mansion, back where this all began. I’m always pleasantly surprised when a male author writes a female law enforcement character well. Reavill has created a believable, smart, savvy character in Remington
