The Juan Doe Murders

(The third book in the Smokey Brandon Mystery series)
A novel by

"Tough, hip, visceral and lusty." - Kirkus Reviews

Someone is killing illegal, Hispanic immigrants and leaving their bodies strewn like trash across Orange County, the playground of Southern California's rich and privileged. But the murders go largely unnoticed, the anonymous, "Juan Doe" victims as invisible in death as they were in their hidden lives, toiling in low-wage jobs serving the wealthy... . until forensics specialist Samantha "Smokey" Brandon sees the gruesome pattern.

"A swift descent into sunburned decadence." - Booklist

Smokey is an ex-cop and former Las Vegas stripper, a childless widow who has seen a lot of death in her job. But it hasn't dimmed her compassion or dedication. These victims aren't invisible to her. She won't stop until she finds the killer, even if it means confronting her darkest demons and sacrificing herself to them.

"Moody, rich, impressive... the most distinctive new crime professional since Patricia Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta." - Washington Post
