Product Description

Product Description


Detectives Annie Avants and Tom Weston tackle one of the most perplexing murder mysteries since they began working together.

The crime victim is a local, well-respected attorney who has gone missing.

There's not much criminal evidence to go on. His car was found an hours drive out of Bakersfield with blood on the passenger seat.

No body has been found.

His staff is in a quandary. He had a new trial scheduled to begin the next morning. Everything was set to go.

And then, he just disappeared.

A mysterious package left in the restroom of the Kern County Courthouse leads our detectives to believe that the attorney is dead.

And now. . . another person has gone missing!

Will our detectives find the answers before a media frenzy erupts in the Kern County/Bakersfield area? Will an FBI profiler be called in to help? Will they come to understand the kinds of criminal minds that lead someone to be a serial killer and narrow the list of suspects?

This fast-paced crime fiction detective thriller will keep you reading well into the night to find out 'who dun it?"

About the Author

Renee's Story I remember the first long story I ever wrote. I was in the third grade and my teacher, Miss Steere, asked us each to write a story about something in history. I chose to write about the Donner party and the tragedies that befell them as they tried to make it to the wild west. I went on and on. I was having so much fun and making up stories about the people and conversations between them. It was like a game to me. It didn't occur to me that I wanted to be a writer when I grew up. I wasn't even old enough to understand what it meant to be grown up. Throughout school, whenever I had to write something, I always had a lot of fun with assignments. I remember writing about the Salem Witches when I was in high school and how exciting it was to make "real" people who lived then and, unfortunately, also died. So what did I do when I was finally an adult? I worked as an accountant, secretary, draftsman of pre-fab metal buildings, I studied Criminal Justice and worked at the Sheriff's Department for a time, and I ended up with a career as a paralegal. Well, that wasn't too bad. It encompassed a lot of research and writing and, in the meantime, I had actually written short stories, poetry, and two unpublished novels. I did have one non-fiction piece published in a magazine in the 80s. Yippee! Finally, I said "enough", quit everything, took early retirement, and moved to Morocco. Now, I am a writer. I love my life and I hope you enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. I have a lot of fun with my characters and stories. To me, they are real people and my joy is sharing them with the you and the rest of the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly engaging read 25 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a really detailed police procedural written from obvious experience. The author's style of portraying conversations and detailing actions is captivating, albeit becoming a little repetitive on the odd occasion. The story is woven between some red herrings surrounding the numerous characters involved and keeps the reader guessing. This is the second book in a series and will be looking to read the first.l
