Third Watch by Robert Dugoni is a short story I downloaded using Kindle unlimited (KU). It could possibly be described as a police procedural for hostage negotiation situations. When Patrol Officer Tracy Crosswhite responded to a call for help from a neighbor of Alexey Gorshkov she faced a possible domestic abuse situation or a hostage scenario. Alexey was a stereotypical Russian drunk. He had a record of spousal abuse but each time the police responded they only told him to leave his residence; each time he returned the following day. His wife, Helene, had finally decided to leave him with children in tow. Alexey decided to deal with the problem either by shooting his wife and children or shooting himself. Shooting Tracy on the way to his solution would be collateral damage.
