This is a new series for me, so I'm just getting to know the central character, D.D. Warren. And so far, what I know is that she's a female police detective, and a pretty tough cookie. Even so, she obviously still has all the same feminine worries about the old biological clock, as this excerpt demonstrates:
She was not getting married. She was not having children. . . . So she might as well read the ***** case reports, because this was her life. This was what she had left. Five dead in Dorchester and no one alive to tell the tale. [p.109]I took out a little questionable language there (this blog tries to maintain its PG-rating), but I did say Sergeant Warren is a tough one. And, yes, it's a bit more than two lines (as usual).
