Jeffery Tolliver leaves Grant County to go to the aid of his officer, Lena, who has been arrested. When he arrives to help, she escapes and runs. Jeffery and Sara, his wife, stay and try to find Lena and find out why she won't ask for help. As they start investigating, they find a web of players that they can't quite get to connect. There are skinheads, drug dealers, Lena's uncle Hank, and a burned up Escalade with an unidentified body inside.
This is one of my favorite author's. She tends to be a little dark sometimes, but her mysteries are very well written. The pieces always fit together nicely! The ending on this one made my very mad though. 4 1/2 stars
