(The third book in the Sarah Pribek series)
A novel by

Detective Sarah Pribek has seen what happens when a cop goes rogue in pursuit of justice: Her husband Shiloh is in a Wisconsin prison, serving the last of his sentence. Since his conviction, Sarah’s own choices have earned her a reputation on the force as an erratic maverick. Now, just as she’s finally getting back on her feet, mentoring a rookie and anticipating Shiloh��s upcoming release, Sarah is pleased to be appointed to a task force investigating the kidnapping and murder of a University of Minnesota student. The case is a “redball,” a high-profile investigation closely watched by the brass, the media and the public. During a round of routine interviews, Sarah questions a young man who leaves her chilled to her nerve endings. A background investigation quickly turns up evidence that further implicates him, and she is certain she’s found their killer. Then, disaster. A voluntary blood test exonerates the man. Sarah’s reputation and her position on the task force are on the line. She’s convinced that the results are wrong. Yet how could that be? She was there. She saw the blood drawn. But when another young woman dies, Sarah finds herself throwing out the rule book in hopes that she can stop a killer who now believes himself untouchable. This long-anticipated third installment in Jodi Compton’s highly-acclaimed Sarah Pribek series follows THE 37TH HOUR and SYMPATHY BETWEEN HUMANS. Praising the first of these, Kirkus Reviews said in a starred review, “A dazzling debut…. Watch this writer. She does it all: plots intelligently, writes elegantly, and creates characters who compel attention the old-fashioned way—by making you believe in them.” Watch Compton do it all again in REDBALL.
