Armstrong hits this one right out of the ballpark with complex characters, snappy dialogue and interesting plots. The author also ties up a whodunit with a surprising twist. This one's a winner.

Private investigators Julie Collins and Kevin Wells are gathering evidence for an insurance fraud case when they witness a fatal accident. This unexpected tragedy immerses them in the unsolved disappearance of a Native American woman, a case that revives Julie's memories of her brother's unsolved murder.

Julie is also forced to analyze her relationship with Tony Martinez when she agrees to work undercover at his strip club, and her life begins to unravel as she deals with work-related problems and personal issues. Will things ever be the same as she identifies her brother's killer? (MEDALLION, Nov., 400 pp., $7.95)
