I wouldn’t know from experience but I imagine it must be very difficult to be a cop Dramatic dangerous cases being solved by extraordinary men and women trying to maintain an emotional detachment from the victims and the perpetratorsI personally could never do it Even to the point I’m not sure I could have continued to live after going through what Channing and his previous partner Alex dealt with It’s some very scary stuff and I don’t envy them in the slightest — and these are fictional characters I’m sure these things along with the racism and sexism described by Tina happen to actual police officers every day as well Law enforcement is definitely not the job for meOn the other side of the coin Lester Mayton whom we learn almost immediately is the perpetrator of these crimes much like one of my favorite shows Motive does is a somewhat sympathetic villain He’s doing these horrible things to send a message and when you discover what that message — and his motive — is Mayton’s crimes become a bit understandable That being said the stone cold demeanor with which he ends lives is incredibly frightening and leaves you wondering about how a switch can be flipped on the human psyche to turn people into cold blooded killers JJ Hensley explores this idea in depth as he paints a picture of a man driven away from his faith and possibly sanity by tragedyOne of my favorite parts of the book involve Channing’s fellow officers Ambitious Tina Lambert in the eyes of the department suffers from the affliction of being a black woman in a white man’s job and uses her intelligence and wit to push back against the establishment When Mayton’s second victim is discovered the department sets up a task force headed by less than brilliant brown noser Chester Hatley; the interactions between him and Lambert are eual parts annoying and hysterical At one point Lambert and Channing decide they’ve had enough of Hatley and she breaks his nose Sure it’s not proper behavior on her part but as a Lambert supporter I couldn’t help but cheerMeasure Twice is like some of my favorite TV police procedurals in book form It’s completely engrossing and one of those books I struggled to put down In fact I read it cover to cover in a 24 hour period I was both pleased and disappointed with the ending — while I’m happy for Channing and Lambert I’m kind of hoping for a seuel I’d definitely be up to reading further crime solving adventures with them
