You Can Go Home Now
by Elias, Michael

Queens cop Nina Karim is on the hunt for a killer while battling violent secrets of her own. By the author of The Last Conquistador. 25,000 first printing.

*Starred Review* Long Island City PD homicide detective Nina Karim tells her boss that police shows on TV-and especially Angie Dickinson in Police Woman-inspired her to become a cop. But the real motivator was the murder of Nina's physician father, worked for Planned Parenthood and was presumably killed by an anti-abortion zealot. Working in law enforcement seemed the best way to find the "cowardly bastard" who did it, a promise Nina made to her younger brother and mother, both now dead. Years later she's still searching, when an old friend comes up with a new lead while Nina is working on a possible connection between the murders of persons who savagely abused their domestic partners. This leads her to a secret women's shelter in Queens, where residents can stay until it's safe for them to go home, prompting Nina to go undercover as an abused wife. In a rousing climax, Elias (The Last Conquistador, 2013) deftly ties together the plot threads of Nina's personal quest and her current assignment. A compulsively readable thriller that could take Elias to another level of acclaim. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
