The Replacement Child(2008)
(The first book in the Lucy Newroe and Gil Montoya series)
A novel by Christine Barber
Late one night editor Lucy Newroe answers the phone in Santa Fe's "Capital Tribune" newsroom. The caller is the notorious Scanner Lady - an anonymous tipster whose hobby is to phone with tips from her police scanner. The old woman tells Lucy she just overheard two Santa Fe cops discussing a dead body. While Lucy is checking out the tip, she discovers Scanner Lady has been killed. Lucy tries to enlist the help of Detective Gil Montoya, but his mind is on other problems. He has just been handed the case of Melissa Baca, a seventh-grade teacher whose body was thrown off the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge. Over the course of the next few days, as Lucy and Gil hunt down two killers, they discover their cases are intertwined in the most intimate ways.
