Publisher Description

A "cunning, zippy plot-twister, both entertaining and dark" (Boston Globe). A Philadelphia college student just wants to get through her freshman year--she'll have to outsmart the cops, kingpins, and a killer, who all think they control her.
Honors student Sarie Holland is busted by the local police while doing a favor for her boyfriend. Unwilling to betray him but desperate to avoid destroying her future, Sarie has no choice but to become a "CI"--a confidential informant.
Philly narcotics cop Ben Wildey is hungry for a career-making bust. The detective thinks he's found the key in Sarie: her boyfriend scores from a mid-level dealer with alleged ties to the major drug gangs.
Sarie turns out to be the perfect CI: a quick study with a shockingly keen understanding of the criminal mind. But Wildey, desperate for results, pushes too hard and inadvertently sends the nineteen-year-old into a death trap, leaving Sarie hunted by crooked cops and killers alike with nothing to save her--except what she's learned during her harrowing weeks as an informant.
Which is bad news for the police and the underworld. Because when it comes to payback, CI #1373 turns out to be a very quick study...

Suspenseful

It starts a bit slow, but get moving pretty quickly. I like the female lead, not what you'd expect.

This a great read--starts out very slow in beginning half of the story. Many shocking twists that you couldn't predict. Roller coaster ride if you care about the characters. Enjoy!

I kept waiting for it to get good but it didn't. Not good at all.
