LAND OF SHADOWS, by Rachel Howzell Hall
The dead girl is not as her surface image projects, and Norton must delve into a seedy world of disenfranchised, fast-moving teenagers, the inconclusive evidence of her own feisty sister's disappearance, the lives of people whose past seems to bear no connections with that long-ago tragedy, and a host of new arrivals for worst-guy-or-gal-on-the-block. Plus her partner, the Tic Tac-addicted cowboy who can't keep his mouth shut. PLUS her philandering husband, working in Japan . . . but is that spicy female voice in the background his business associate or his current squeeze? All in all, an interesting read and a great start for a series. It;s a 4.
