Mystery Woman Sleuth
In Jane Haseldine’s new novel of riveting suspense,
Detroit newspaper reporter Julia Gooden is up against the
city’s most devious criminal—and her own painful past.
Julia Gooden knows how to juggle different lives. A
successful crime reporter, she covers the grittiest stories
in the city while raising her two young boys in the suburbs.
But beneath that accomplished façade is another Julia, still
consumed by a tragedy that unfolded thirty years ago when
her nine-year-old brother disappeared without a trace.
Julia’s marriage, too, is a balancing act, as she tries to
rekindle her relationship with her husband, Assistant
District Attorney David Tanner, while maintaining
professional boundaries. David is about to bring Nick Rossi
to trial for crimes that include drug trafficking, illegal
gambling, and bribery. But the story becomes much more
urgent when a courthouse bomb claims several
victims—including the prosecution’s key witness—and leaves
David critically injured.
Though Julia is certain that Rossi orchestrated the attack,
the case against him is collapsing, and his power and
connections run high and wide. With the help of Detective
Raymond Navarro of the Detroit PD, she starts following a
trail of blackmail, payback, and political ambition, little
imagining where it will lead. Julia has risked her career
before, but this time innocent lives—including her
children’s—hang in the balance, and justice may come too
late to save what truly matters…
