The Garbage Man

(The first book in the Kate Holland series)
A novel by

What she can’t remember…just might kill her.

Former US Army detective Kate Holland spent years hiding from the world—and herself.

Now a small-town cop, the past catches up with Kate when the body of a fellow Army veteran is left along a backcountry meticulously severed pieces.

Four years earlier, Kate spent eleven hours as a prisoner of war in Afghanistan. According to her Silver Star write-up, she singlehandedly took down eleven terrorists to avoid staying longer.

But Kate has no memory of the deaths, or the events that led up to them. And now, bizarre clues are cropping up in and around that crime scene—and others. Clues that appear to connect to that fateful day. Is the killer trying to tell her something?

Or is Kate finally losing her grip on reality?

As the body count rises, Kate must confront the reason she bolted from the Army—before she becomes the killer's next victim.

Written by a former US Navy Lt., The Garbage Man is Book 1 in the gritty Hidden Valor Military Psychological Suspense Series and features Ruger—Kate's 3 yr old German Shepherd.

PLEASE NOTE: There is a dog, but this is not a cozy mystery series. Cursing & gritty, graphic crime scenes abound throughout the Hidden Valor books. This series also contains a raw & honest portrayal of the themes of PTSD & suicide. If you like strong, female protagonists and seriously gritty, complex suspense that twists and turns all the way to The End—you'll love Candace Irving's 108,000-word military mystery/suspense featuring Braxton Police Deputy Kate Holland and her self-appointed therapy dog.
