She learned to hate cops at an early age, thanks to her drug addicted mom, so no one would have guessed Kate Darby would become a cop when she grew up.
Patrolling the streets of Peculiar, Texas, Kate does her best to keep her town safe. She’s trained to be ready for anything on a routine traffic stop, but hen she pulls a Mercedes over for running a stop sign, the fact the driver flees isn’t unexpected, but the dead body in the trunk…well, that’s another matter.
Kate never expected to have to investigate a murder, and she needs to prove she can handle it. For herself, and for the victim, because there will be more than one.
A female cop, a dead body in the trunk of a Mercedes, and drug cartels in a small town. The twists and turns are inevitable.
(The murder IS resolved in this first installment of the Kate Darby crime fiction/hardboiled mystery series, but the series arc is not resolved).
Fans of Robert Crais, Melinda Leigh, Kendra Elliot and Mary Burton will enjoy this series.
