Years ago, Dakota Jones worked as an escort but then won the lottery and reinvented herself. She now helms Runaway Investigations, which specializes in tracking down missing teenagers and patients with Alzheimer's. She shares a lovely home with girlfriend Kris Carson, a homicide investigator for the Phoenix PD. When Dakota's former boss at the escort service is murdered in a highly ritualized manner, Kris and Dakota's relationship takes a hit because Kris hates being reminded of Dakota's previous work. While Kris and colleague Hamilton Stark investigate what appears to be a killer targeting escorts, Dakota looks for a missing teen. The two cases collide in an explosion of gunfire and arson. In a refreshingly different take on the police procedural, the narrative alternates between Kris and Dakota's efforts to live a normal life and the parallel investigations. The plot is handled deftly, and Dakota is a compelling protagonist who has worked hard to overcome her troubled past. VERDICT Add this to the growing pantheon of titles starring lesbian detectives, including Katherine V. Forrest's Kate Delafield and Claire McNab's Carol Ashton, Kylie Kendall, and Denise Cleever. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
