Lena Gamble is an LAPD cop held in disgrace by department higher-ups for the explosive way her last case played out, though she's still hailed as a hero by her colleagues for catching the killer. For her punishment, she hasn't handled a real murder investigation in eight months.

When the chief finally tosses her a case, she's thrilled until she gets a look at the scene and realizes he's probably setting her up to be exiled once and for all: the victim is unidentified, and there are no witnesses, and no leads. Just the body, chopped into pieces and dropped in a Dumpster - gruesome enough to ensure that, once again, the media will be following Lena's every move. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " I've found another new mystery writer! Yea! Enjoyed the reader (CD) & the storyline that had a few surprises altho I did figure out most of them. Still, I am looking forward to reading or listening to more of his work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara Elsborg | 1/16/2014

    " I think I must have read this one before because I sort of remembered as I was reading. Annoying because I bought it after having enjoyed one of his others. It was still a great read. I love books that twist and turn and take you up alleys only to lead you to a blind end and then throw everything you thought on its head. I love them when they have a satisfactory conclusion and this did. Lena is a brilliant protagonist and I was in her skin as she battled to find the truth and save her bacon! True to form for me, I did get a bit confused in places with the number of characters but I'm pretty sure that's because I speed read. If you like dark, violent thrillers - this delivers! "

    " Graphic, sexist, annoying, belittling and only the ending saves it from being a complete waste of time. 2 of 10 stars. "
