As a cadet with the Arizona Highway Patrol, Hui-Chien got hands-on experience and some street-cred with the officers while she worked toward a degree in Criminal Justice. Homicide Detective was her goal—until a blistering hot August day when a routine dispatch to a traffic accident changed her life forever.
Justice in Mystic Grove
After a local resident of Mystic Grove Wisconsin is murdered, a Door County lawyer hires private investigators, Liz Bean and Sam Nolan, to find the killer. He wants justice, which will also hopefully exonerate his one of the main suspects: his son. Liz dives into the case and discovers that the victim suffered a tragic past. He also had secrets that brought him into contact with many people who might have killed him. When their client imposes a new deadline, Liz and Sam struggle to identify their main suspects: two men who had been spotted at the murder scene. Were they the killers? If so, did they act alone? Will they strike again? Liz and Sam’s investigation reveals a truth that stuns everyone. It also shines a light on their client’s hidden motive.
Kill Me Why?
Chief Inspector Gray James is standing in the spot where he killed his only son when he hears the news – THE STITCHER is back after a fifteen-year absence. And the victim – lips sutured shut with medical nylon – disappears within minutes of being found at a nearby Body Farm. Something is brewing in the quaint and peaceful coastal town of Halfmoon Bay – edged between the Pacific Ocean and the Rocky Mountains near Vancouver. The town of Gray’s youth and where it all began – where he had a hand in his son’s death. With a black hole forming inside him and his family threatened, Gray must catch the Stitcher – before a flood drowns the town, before his estranged wife takes away what matters, before his most guarded secret is unleashed.
