Snitch by Rene Gutteridge (2007), 321 pages
Snitch is the second book in the Occupational Hazards series; it is preceded by Scoop and followed by Skid. I sincerely hope that isn’t the end of the series, though (I haven’t been able to find out whether Gutteridge is writing more books for this series or not so far.).
I love these covers!
Not until I had this book in my hand did I realize the common thread of this series — each book (so far) is about a different sibling in the homeschooled, former clown company Hazard family. This book’s Hazard star is Las Vegas cop Mackenzie, better known as “Mack.” Mack was introduced in Scoop, but this book could easily stand on its own. (However, they’re all — well, the two I’ve read — great reads, so I advise just starting at the beginning.)
Mack, who has dreamed of undercover work for years, gets her shot as part of an undercover auto theft task force. The small task force is headed by Sgt. Ron Yeager, who is just shy of retirement following a distinguished career. The team is truly an unlikely, motley crew.
So let’s recap: We’re in Sin City, and we’ve got police officers, both experienced and not. Christian and not. With huge egos and with too-little self-confidence. Then, of course, there’s Yeager’s wife. And his young pastor who can’t get enough crime drama. This is a fun, funny read. Pretty much the whole time I was reading this book, I was grinning. Love it!
