Lieutenant Jo Fournier originally from New Orleans but now working in small town Oakhurst is freakishly clean and well organised. She is also a bit of a terrier, and once she’s on to something, she won’t let go.
So when Jo picks up a murder inquiry it’s not surprising that she digs deep to uncover everything she can.
At first she is drawn to the husband of the victim, he seems like a nice guy until you talk about money. This guys tight, but is that enough reason to murder.
Meanwhile the real murderer is looking for his next victim, but it’s not his second, there have been others.
When another woman is found dead, her wedding ring missing and posed in a strange dancing pose Jo decides to dig deeper and look at some cold cases.
Her bosses think she’s wasting her time, but that terrier instinct kicks in and she won’t let go, but at what cost, and will she find the killer?
Jo Fournier is the latest Detective to hit the shelves, and it’s quite a crowded market place.
I like her, she’s newly promoted and is having doubts about if she did the right thing taking the job, she knows she can do it but it should mean less time in the field. If this outing is anything to go by that seems unlikely.
She’s a clean freak almost to the point of having OCD, she’s obsessively organised, and she can be a bit blunt, but yes I really really liked her.
There are some good side characters in this story that I’m really looking forward to seeing develop in the next, and hopefully more, books
