Summary
  • Cold case detective Lauren Riley wakes up in the hospital certain of two things: she was stabbed and left for dead...and the person who did it was a cop. After being brutally stabbed at her desk late one night, Lauren Riley works her way backwards through the haze to piece together who attacked her and why. A mysterious phone message forces her to enlist the help of a retired lieutenant to track down a witness who is desperate not to be found. As she digs into the Buffalo Police Department's hidden past she uncovers a terrible secret, one a fellow officer would kill to protect. Packed with suspense and featuring a detective who "relentlessly--and with morbid humor--gets the job done" (Booklist), The Murder Bookcontinues a series praised byKirkus Reviewsas "an excellent police procedural combined with a psychological thriller." Praise for A Cold Day in Hell, Book 1 of the Cold Case Investigation series: "Recommend this one to anyone who loves courtroom dramas where lawyers tear into witnesses like pit bulls. And to anyone hot for a police procedural where tired cops make mistakes but slowly, relentlessly--and with morbid humor--get the job done. Redmond delivers both in one package...The real attraction here is a keyhole view into a world that turns our expectations upside down--a world where a bullying, quasi-fascist cop can be the only one with a handle on reality. Keep your eyes on Redmond, a retired cop who knows how to write."--Booklist "Redmond, a recently retired Buffalo PD homicide detective, keeps everything moving nicely in this well-constructed crime novel."--Publishers Weekly "An excellent police procedural combined with a psychological thriller."--Kirkus Reviews "A Cold Day in Hellis a fine first novel and Lauren Riley is cool new addition to the world of PI and cop protagonists. A retired detective, Lissa Marie Redmond gives it to the reader without the sugarcoating and lifts the veil off how the system really works...or doesn't."--Reed Farrel Coleman,New York Timesbestselling author of What You Break "Ex-cop Lissa Redmond has a sure hand with police procedure, which should be no surprise. The joy of A Cold Day in Hellcomes from her equally sure hand with storytelling. This is a welcome new voice on the crime scene."--SJ Rozan, bestselling author of Ghost Hero
