“A nonstop thrill ride…Greer has given us one of the most memorable heroes in recent crime fiction.”
—Jeffrey Deaver, international bestselling author of The Bone Collector and Solitude Creek
For fans of Tess Gerritsen’s Rizzoli & Isles and Kathy Reichs, Jennifer Greer’s explosive debut, A DESPERATE PLACE has it all—lies, secrets, and a small-town crime that will shake you to your core. Coming from Crooked Lane Books, this novel will be available August 11, 2020.
The body of famous actress Niki Francis is unearthed from its shallow grave near the town of Medford, Oregon. Niki had fame, wealth, looks. The kill was targeted, premeditated, and it’s about her celebrity. Or so they thought.
Whit McKenna is working as a crime reporter for the Medford Daily Chronicle. Fresh from a harrowing assignment with a previous post at the L. A. Times, which cost her husband’s life, Whit must pull herself together for the sake of her two daughters. The heartache has hardly begun to heal when she’s called to cover Niki’s murder, so she teams up with her best friend, medical examiner detective Katie Riggs working quid pro quo to solve the murder.
Two more victims turn up with the same grisly detail, but rather than clarity, the possible suspects and motives become scrambled. Time is running out, and each front page article McKenna writes brings her closer to a killer who will stop at nothing to realize a deadly vision.
