Publisher's Summary

When the battered body of a teenage girl is found in a dumpster, Lieutenant Jo Riskin is called to take the case. Investigating with her partner, Detective Lynae Parker, Jo uncovers secrets, loyalties, and ambitions that give motives to a surprising number of suspects, including a boyfriend from the wrong side of the tracks.

While immersed in her current case, Jo is battling her own personal demons. After two years, she is still grieving over the loss of her husband, who was killed in the line of duty. New information that could help solve his murder, and let her move on with her life, is within her grasp.

Barricading her heart, Jo is determined to solve both cases and bring the killers to justice.

Critic Reviews

"TenBrink's writing is masterful; she weaves a mystery that will ensnare the most discerning fan of the genre from murder to resolution. The story itself is engrossing, thick with layers and false leads, hints and clues, and a school full of red herrings. Highly recommended!" (Jason Parent, author of Seeing Evil)

New Author, New Series, Great Read!!

This debut novel by Debbie S. Tenbrink is really good. I saw that two other people have left very low ratings and I cannot understand why. With no review for their reasons, I think this is very unfair to the author and to potential readers/listeners. I almost didn't purchase this book based on the poor ratings but am glad I ignored them.
This is the beginning of the Jo Riskin series. The publisher's summary is excellent. This is a solid procedural with a good storyline, believable characters that are well fleshed out and an enticing ending with a cliffhanger the protagonist doesn't see coming.
Colleen Tremblay does an excellent job narrating.
Very HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
