Out of the Blues

(2016)
(The first book in the Detective Sarah Alt series)
A novel by

 
 
From an author with more than 30 years' experience in the Atlanta Police Department comes a riveting procedural debut introducing an unforgettable heroine.

On her first day as a newly minted homicide detective, Sarah "Salt" Alt is given the cold-case murder of a blues musician whose death was originally ruled an accidental drug overdose. Now new evidence has come to light that he may have been given a hot dose intentionally. And this evidence comes from a convicted felon hoping to trade his knowledge for shortened prison time...a man who Salt herself put behind bars.

In a search that will take her into the depths of Atlanta's buried wounds - among the city's homeless, its politically powerful churches, commerce and industry, and the police department itself - Salt probes her way toward the truth in a case that has more at stake than she ever could have imagined.

At once a vivid procedural and a penetrating examination of what it means to be cop, Out of the Blues is a remarkable crime debut.

Genre: Mystery    

Praise for this book

"Grit, heart, smarts, and authenticity—Detective Sarah Alt has them, and so does Out of the Blues. A terrific mystery by [a] talented newcomer." - Meg Gardiner
