Description: Shamus-Award-winning author Kristen Lepionka plunges back into danger in her next exciting mystery featuring PI Roxane Weary.
Junior-high school nurse Rebecca Newsome was an experienced hiker, until she plummeted to her death to the bottom of a ravine in a Columbus metro park. Her daughter, Maggie, doesn't believe it was an accident, and Rebecca's ex-husband is her prime suspect. But he's a well-connected ex-cop and Maggie is certain that's the reason no one will listen to her. Roxane quickly uncovers that the dead woman's ex is definitely a jerk, but is he a murderer?
As she pieces together the days before Rebecca died, Roxane finds a series of trips to Detroit and across the border into Windsor, Canada, major withdrawals from her checking account, and more contacts with a casino manager than a middle-aged school nurse from Toledo should reasonably have. When the investigation leads to Leila Hassan, the cunning con artist who got away in What You Want to See , Roxane is determined not to make the same mistake twice by falling for Leila's lies-except she might actually be telling the truth this time. Roxane needs to figure out the connection between Leila, a secretive church group, a women's health organization, and Rebecca's fall in the woods...before a dangerous secret gets someone else killed.
"Expertly plotted. Roxane, with her vibrant narrative voice, stands as a worthy successor to Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone." Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Roxane is an increasingly compelling lead character, her fallibility balanced by her self-awareness and persistence."Booklist (starred review)

"Read this one and see if it doesn't send you scurrying in search of the previous three books in Lepionka's series." Bookpage

"Weary is someone you root for, and her grit and determination when working a case is the real draw here." Bookbub
