The Silenced Women (2021)
(Violent Crimes Investigations Unit, book 1)
Frederick Weisel
"In this propulsive debut, Weisel writes evocatively about a detective in crisis, a complex crime, and a city pushed to the edge by a killer's grip. With The Silenced Women, you're in for a smart and gritty ride."
