Having cleared all previous cases, Sammy Greyfox starts a new week with a clean slate. But when she saves a woman from being deliberately run down, a complicated new case starts. This is compounded by a call from the medical examiner questioning whether the body on his mortuary table was really killed by accident. Not yet eight in the morning and already she has two homicides to handle.
She could never have predicted it, but the two cases come together, and it that weren’t enough, her Sergeant is working another case where someone is discarding newborn children’s bodies in the Mangrove and Sammy begins to wonder if the cases aren’t all connected. If she’s right, there will be a race against the clock to prevent further deaths. But can she get there in time?
If only her personal life were settled – but it’s not. Throughout each of the following days she struggles with personal issues, one of which may result in her taking a life. But would she be able to deal with the consequences?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I wanted to write a book in first-person, and thought I might as well try a female hero as trhe main character. So this has been a fun double challenge. Feedback from people to help me understand how well (or otherwise) I have achieved these two tasks, would be gratefully appreciated.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I wanted a character with a complicated personal life, but also someone strong enough to handle complex homicides. By choosing a female lead, I think I have the best of both worlds. Someone smart and determined, but emotionally struggling with a variety of challenges in her personal life. Also, as the story is based in Naples, Florida, I have chosen a Native American which allows me to explore a little of the culture in the Seminole Nation,
My black and white was still in my reserved space, but someone had slashed all four tires and it was sitting on the rims.
So much for an early start. I call this in and wait a full half-hour for a tow-truck to arrive. The guy was still loading the car when a B&W pulled in and my least favorite deputy grinned at me from behind the wheel. This man didn’t even need to speak to wind me up, and I fought the surge of adrenaline in my bloodstream, but I was ready for a fight. No doubt about it.
He threw a couple of stupid one-liners my way, but I stayed cool. I became that helpless sixteen-year-old and asked him if he could climb up onto the tow truck and recover my Glock from the front seat.
His expression said it all. I was pathetic, and he was God’s gift to pathetic women. Of course he would. All this without saying a word.
He climbed out of the B&W and up onto the rear of the tow truck.
I jumped into the B&W, threw it into reverse and shot backwards out of the parking area in front of my high-rise, spinning the car around, and before he could even react, I left him sucking exhaust and smoking rubber.
I could see him in the rear-view, jumping up and down on the tow truck, his face red, shouting and waving his fists after me.
Suddenly, the day didn’t seem so bad anymore. In fact, it felt downright great.
