RT Rating

n the suburban Chicago community
of Lincoln Prairie, police detective Marti MacAlister keeps busy with two investigations. Two young boys discover the body of a woman in a nearby river, and Marti and her partner, Vik Jessenovik, must try to confirm the woman's identity. Then, while renovating a nearby building, contractors stumble upon human skeletal remains in a closet.

As Marti tries to close both cases, she faces her own personal struggles when husband Ben is diagnosed with a potentially serious illness.

Marti is a down-to-earth and believable character. Her profession isn't glamorized, it's very real and all-encompassing as she struggles to maintain a balance between her job and her family life. This is the
total package, complete with gritty drama and intriguing suspense. (Dec., 288
