Tough as nails, Mace Perry (3.5*s)
Reviewed in the United States on June 6, 2020
Starts with a bit of a Patty Hearst vibe. Mace Perry was a cop on the rise in the Washington DC PD until she was kidnapped, drugged, forced to participate in crimes, and then framed and sent to jail. Fortunately, her older sister is the PD chief of police and orchestrated her early release. Her sister just wants her to stay out of trouble, but Mace is hell-bent on exonerating herself.
When a young lawyer at a moderate sized law firm discovers a colleague dead and stuffed in a refrigerator, Mace insinuates herself in the case, much to her sister’s chagrin. The story has a lot of twists with a lot of it taking place in the roughest neighborhoods of DC, not to mention corruption at the highest levels in national security departments. Mace is a formidable and compelling character – maybe a little over the top.
