Cleveland police forensic investigator Maggie Gardiner must fingerprint and determine cause of death of an unidentified teenage girl's body. No one appears to be looking for the youth, so it seems likely that she's an orphan or a runaway. Soon after, the corpse of a street criminal with a history of violence turns up in Maggie's lab, and the investigation points to organized crime, human trafficking, and the possibility of vigilante justice.
VERDICT Black, a former forensics investigator, skillfully portrays the stark realities of homicide cases in her latest thriller (after Close to the Bone). In this series launch, she pairs Maggie with Jack Renner, a determined detective with secrets of his own who has no intention of allowing murderers to evade their punishment. A great choice for readers of psychological suspense, forensic investigations, and mystery.
