Missing Justice (Samantha Kincaid Mysteries) (MP3 CD)
Deputy District Attorney Samantha Kincaid is back at work after an attempt on her life and a promotion into the Major Crimes Unit. When the husband of Portland, Oregon city judge Clarissa Easterbrook reports her missing and Samantha is called on the case, she assumes her only job is to make the district attorney look good until the judge turns up. When the police discover evidence of foul play, however, Samantha finds herself unearthing secrets that Clarissa had wanted to stay hidden, the lingering personal tolls of a crime that occurred decades ago. And when those secrets lead to the discovery of corruption at the highest levels of the city's power structure, Samantha realises that her quest for justice could cost her not only her job, but her life. Missing Justice, the highly suspenseful follow-up to Judgment Calls, confirms Burke's place among the genre's most talented and exciting newcomers. 'A born storyteller. Burke ... has created an attractive heroine whom I look forward to meeting again.' -- Sunday Telegraph 'The author's background as a former deputy DA in Portland lends gritty ambience to this modern parable of greed and ambition.' -- Booklist.
