Publishers, PLEASE list it as a re-issue of an older novel when that is the case. It is deceptive when the only publication date listed is 2017.
Bernie Granger is the sheriff of Adams County, following in the footsteps of her father and grandfather. Young women are being adjucted, raped, tortured and killed. Jim Norton comes to town as the new chief detective - a career come down so he can follow his twelve year old son to Alabama. His ex-wife has custody and she and the new husband have moved to Huntsville. Soon after arriving he is informed his ex has breast cancer and needs him to take their son for an extended period.
The hunt for the killer, a new relationship with his son and the relationship between the the new chief and the sheriff plays out. The sheriff has a younger, beautiful sister, an interfering father and a match making mother.
The writing is ok, the story predictable and neatly wrapped up. Not great literature but worth a few hours.
Bernie Granger is Sheriff of Adams County, Ala. her father was sheriff before her. Now at 32 after a bad marriage and a few years as sheriff she has a serial killer on her hands. Does she go with her instincts or depend on her father's. Bernie must find her own way and ultimately try to save the life of someone in her own family.
Detective Jim Norton is the new chief of Investigations in her small dept. Jim has taken this job and moved to Adams Co. because he wants to stay close to his 13 yr old son. At 40 and alone he finds more than a boss in Bernie. Her family has what he wants a safe, secure harbor.
From the first abduction and murder it is apparent to Jim that this is not an isolated incident. As the first leads come in they realize this killer maskerades as a secret admirer, leaving notes and small gifts before kidnapping his target. Later the woman is left with her throat slit on the side of the road.
As I said before Beverly knows how to take us up the mountain a step at a time, and always gives a party at the summit, but I do love the closure. Don't miss this one. She just gets better and better.

Have just downloaded AMNESIA by Beverly Barton and will be looking for more, as I am sure this will be just as good.
