Mystery Woman Sleuth | Thriller Psychological
Former North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation agent
Rachel Carver blames herself for the collateral death of
an innocent woman in her last case. Unable to accept her
superior’s attempts to cover up the incident, she turned
in her badge. But when a former partner asks her to
consult on a new murder case, she reluctantly agrees,
traveling to a small, remote mountain community, where
she’s tasked with leading a group of inexperienced
detectives on a hunt for the killer. The trek has hardly
begun when what seems to be the act of a loner proves to
be much more as Rachel's team comes under attack—and a
detective is killed in the fallout.
Now that the stakes have risen, Rachel’s old employers at
the SBI step in to take over the investigation. But
Rachel, convinced they are on the wrong track, continues
to work the case alone. And just as she delves into the
town’s past, she discovers a secret history that connects
the victims—one that makes her the target of a man who
would kill to keep it a secret—in Among the Dead, J. R.
Backlund’s gripping mystery debut.
