To support her small daughter, April Ortiz does what she has to do—which means waiting tables in a skimpy outfit at a popular nightclub in the gang-infested area of Chula Vista. When one of her co-workers is found raped and murdered, April does what she knows she shouldn’t—she defies the neighborhood code by giving the police a hardcore gang member’s name. Clean-cut cop Noah Young wants a shot at breaking this case more than anything in the world—that is, until he meets the unforgettable April Ortiz. When April gives Noah the tip, a spark ignites. As the fire between them threatens to blaze out of control, the two are dragged down further into the dark mysteries of the graffiti-lined streets, taunted by a crazed killer who could strike again at any time.

As alsways, a fulfilling story, though I really wanted a happy ending for Eric. Sorenson writes a love story set against the forbidden topic of gangs, and manages to make it riveting and wonderful. I loved that Noah wasn't perfect - he tried to do his best, and that's all we can ask of him. I liked ...
If I keep reading these types of books, I think I'm going to have to add a "thriller" shelf to Goodreads. I wouldn't classify THE EDGE OF NIGHT as a mystery, as the murders seem more like a tension generating backdrop rather than the focus of the story. I enjoyed this particular story, though I'm ...
