Detective Shelly Caldwell was born to be a cop like her mother. But in her latest investigation, a body drained of blood did a disappearing act and left her career circling the drain. Now more dead bodies are showing up, each one mysteriously drained of blood. Going undercover is the only way to find the murderer, but it could make Shelly the next target. Patricia Rosemoor fills Hot Case (4) with well-drawn characters. The believably flawed heroine drives the quick-moving story with her engaging voice and satisfying emotional journey.
