All That Fall

(The first book in the Emma Lawson Mystery series)
A novel by

Starring a tough-as-nails female investigator, and set in Sacramento over just 48 hours, this “suspenseful, complex, and engaging” action thriller keeps the twists and turns coming (Meg Gardiner, Edgar Award–winning author).

Emma Lawson must race against the clock to rescue a kidnapped child—and stop a killer whose master plan only begins with murder.

The body shot and killed in the early morning hours by the Sacramento River would have been an easy case for Detective Alibi Morning Sun to solve if only his prime suspect weren’t already in jail. Across town, California’s youngest lead government ethics investigator Emma Lawson is enjoying a day off to help her best friend, Kate, open a new business when amidst a hail of gunfire, Kate’s teen son, Luke, goes missing.

Over a harrowing 48 hours, as Alibi gathers new evidence to determine the identity of the riverside killer and Emma desperately searches for 15-year-old Luke, the two investigations collide. At the heart of both is a kidnapped 3-year-old girl and a diabolical plot with stakes Emma could never have imagined. Will Emma and Alibi be in time to bring the girl and teen to safety and to stop a calculating killer whose plan threatens all that Emma holds dear?
