Erica Jensen Mystery #1:
2021 SHAMUS AWARD NOMINEE
Erica may have survived in combat, but will she survive this case?
Unlicensed private eye Erica Jensen works as a “researcher” who performs background checks, conducts surveillance, and takes on other dubious assignments while battling PTSD and an opioid addiction. When a wealthy man hires her to find his missing daughter, Erica ends up with more work than she bargained for: a murder victim and unwanted attention from the killers.
While seeking the daughter, Erica uncovers evidence that raises questions about the dead man. Did the missing daughter know him? Did the victim have ties to an artifacts smuggling ring? As Erica tries to find the answers, she attracts the attention of people willing to kill to keep their secrets.
