Now a Miami cop, Jo Frye had a rough introduction to police work in her rookie year in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
It continues to haunt her and she spools the tale out to Louis.
The case involved a venal serial killer...but was uncovered by a chance finding of human bones in a secluded forest.
It is 1975 and Jo fights the good old boy network...but picks up a mentor and believer in a Michigan State Police Investigator.
As the clues are unearthed and more bones are found, Jo becomes both predator and prey.
Unable to resist "just one more chapter" I finished this exhilarating novel in two sittings.
Go get this one NOW! (it's a paperback original).
I wish they did not make references to astrology. They definitely do not know anything about the subject. And don't bother to research. They say "his Sun makes square with his Mercury and both are retrograde". First off, Sun is NEVER retrograde. Don't happen. Second - Mercury and Sun cannot make a square, the farthest Mercury can wander from Sun is 30 degree. Again, Mercury and Sun in square - don't happen, never ever. And it is not something of deep knowledge - it's basics of astrology.
She's a rookie cop in Michigan surrounded by the blue wall of the good old boys. Louis is almost non-existent in this story. But, it doesn't matter.
Being the rookie, Joe (Yes, it spelled that way), picks up a mentor. She struggles between her personal life and the capture of a serial killer.
Possibly halfway through, the reader know who the crazed killer is. That doesn't matter either. The struggles and intricate details of how to catch the killer keep this moving and interesting.
The last chapter and epilogue are very good and a fitting end to a very well done drama. The novel is well deserving of the reader's time.
