The Color of Murder

(The first book in the Veronica Shade series)
A novel by

From the bestselling author of the Chase Adams series comes a shocking thriller about a small town haunted by a terrifying killer, violent secrets, and the search for a long-forgotten truth.

For more than two decades, Detective Veronica Shade has tried to forget about the horrible massacre that befell her family. The problem is, with every new case, the colors return.

Veronica is no normal detective; she sees the world differently than everyone else. Those who know her well say that her rare condition, multi-modal synesthesia, is a gift that makes her the best detective North Dakota has ever seen. Others chalk her nearly perfect closing rate up to sheer luck and careful case selection.

But when a young girl is found hanging from the rafters of an abandoned barn in the small town of Denbra Heights, the town that Veronica grew up in, she is compelled to return to her roots. Hoping to reconnect with old friends, and quickly close another case, Veronica is shocked when she unearths a terrible truth that has links to her own past. But the question remains: why would this young girl commit suicide after being the lone survivor of a terrible accident?

The local PD wants to wrap this case up and move on, but where they see suicide, Veronica sees murder. And when another young girl intentionally overdoses a few days later, Veronica fears that these deaths are only the start of something far more sinister.

As Veronica Shade hunts for a brutal and sadistic killer, more of her forgotten past is revealed. Soon, it becomes clear that her special talent might not be a gift but a curse that prevents her from ever living a normal life.

And it might just result in her being the killer’s next victim.
