Description


Cold case detective Lauren Riley wakes up in the hospital certain of two things: she was stabbed and left for dead...and the person who did it was a cop.

After being brutally stabbed at her desk late one night, Lauren Riley works her way backwards through the haze to piece together who attacked her and why. A mysterious phone message forces her to enlist the help of a retired lieutenant to track down a witness who is desperate not to be found. As she digs into the Buffalo Police Department's hidden past she uncovers a terrible secret, one a fellow officer would kill to protect.

Packed with suspense and featuring a detective who relentlessly--and with morbid humor--gets the job done (Booklist), The Murder Book continues a series praised by Kirkus Reviews as an excellent police procedural combined with a psychological thriller.

Praise for The Murder Book

An Amazon and Barnes and Noble Bestseller

A simply riveting read from cover to cover.--Midwest Book Review

Fans of contemporary police procedurals will want to see more of the plucky Lauren.--Publishers Weekly

A pulse-racing pace, well-chosen details of Buffalo's mixed industrial landscape and characters to bleed for make this a stunningly good second book. Highly recommended.--Kingdom Books

Praise for A Cold Day in Hell, Book 1 of the Cold Case Investigation series:

Recommend this one to anyone who loves courtroom dramas where lawyers tear into witnesses like pit bulls. And to anyone hot for a police procedural where tired cops make mistakes but slowly, relentlessly--and with morbid humor--get the job done. Redmond delivers both in one package...The real attraction here is a keyhole view into a world that turns our expectations upside down--a world where a bullying, quasi-fascist cop can be the only one with a handle on reality. Keep your eyes on Redmond, a retired cop who knows how to write.--Booklist

Redmond, a recently retired Buffalo PD homicide detective, keeps everything moving nicely in this well-constructed crime novel.--Publishers Weekly

An excellent police procedural combined with a psychological thriller.--Kirkus Reviews

A Cold Day in Hell is a fine first novel and Lauren Riley is cool new addition to the world of PI and cop protagonists. A retired detective, Lissa Marie Redmond gives it to the reader without the sugarcoating and lifts the veil off how the system really works...or doesn't.--Reed Farrel Coleman, New York Times bestselling author of What You Break

Ex-cop Lissa Redmond has a sure hand with police procedure, which should be no surprise. The joy of A Cold Day in Hell comes from her equally sure hand with storytelling. This is a welcome new voice on the crime scene.--SJ Rozan, bestselling author of Ghost Hero
