After testifying in federal court against police corruption in her department, Chicago Homicide Detective Kate Delaney is placed on administrative leave. During this time, she learns that her estranged sister, whom she hasn't seen in 12 years, has died in New Orleans. The NOPD claim it was suicide, but Kate feels there's something more to the death. Deciding to investigate, Kate arrives in New Orleans knowing that she needs to find someone knowledgeable with the territory and the players. Someone with a total disregard for rules. Someone like Nick Broussard, an ex- Navy SEAL who turned cop and then PI. As her only chance to discover the truth, it matters little that he was a cop who got caught bending the rules too many times. From the moment she sets eyes on him, Kate knows Nick is going to be trouble; a delicious package with bad-boy charm. Mon dieu! Kate touches something deep in Nick; something he didn't even know existed. Now, she's a danger -- a danger to his heart. As Nick and Kate submerge themselves deep in New Orleans' underworld, they discover dark secrets too many criminals would kill to keep buried. NO SAFE PLACE is a chilling suspense thriller, capturing our mind and hanging on until the last page is turned. We're swept into the seedy world of voodoo, black magic and murder. This story is so real, you can feel the 'gator's eyes gazing upon you above the murky waters of the bayou. You can visualize the gnarled limbs of the cypress trees and smell the moss rotting on their trunks. NO SAFE PLACE is a spellbinding read with heart-stopping action, a mesmerizing plot and an ending you have to read to believe. Two strong characters singe the pages with steamy heat, perfect for the sultry South. Do yourself a favor and read this spine-tingling, extraordinary novel by JoAnn Ross. She never disappoints readers and NO SAFE PLACE is no exception. It's a page-turner and not just a great read -- it's a re-read. BRAVA Ms. Ross. You had me guessing until the very end and then I was blown away. An amazing author and this latest story proves it, once again.

SUMMARY

Chicago homicide detective Kate Delaney fiercely defends victims. Which is why -- despite death threats -- she's testifying to a federal grand jury about local police corruption. It's also why she's infuriated by the New Orleans police department's blasé attitude toward her estranged sister's death. But pursuing an investigation in a strange city means allying with someone who knows the territory. And the players. Someone with a total disregard for the rules. As an ex-cop from a police family in New Orleans, PI Nick Broussard knows that cops live by their own code. You don't rat out a fellow officer. The last thing he needs is some smart-mouthed, by-the-book outsider unknowingly injecting herself into his undercover search for the truth. Even worse is the way she conjures up visions of tangled sheets. . . Nick and Kate's chase pits them against the criminal underworld of the sultry southern city. And as they peel away layers of deadly deception, the discover a dark secret too many are willing to kill to keep.
