When Deputy Sara Cross arrives at the late-night scene of a shooting by the side of a deserted highway, she learns that her former partner-also her former lover-fatally shot a twenty-four-year-old man, claiming that the man pulled a gun during what should have been a routine traffic stop. But the details soon point to another scenario, and in order to protect herself and her son, she must follow the truth no matter where it leads. Wallace Stroby delivers a gripping novel that is part modern noir, part intense character study-and totally compelling from start to finish.

Karen White's lugubrious opening tones are fitting introduction to our harried protagonist: Sara Cross, St. Charles County, Fla., deputy sheriff and single mother of a six-year-old boy with leukemia. She's first on the scene after fellow deputy (and former lover) Billy Flynn has shot and killed a 22-year-old New Jersey black man for fleeing a traffic stop. Sara senses something off about the shooting, and her investigation eventually leads to a confrontation with Morgan, an elderly, extremely proficient yet oddly humane hit man who is suffering from newly diagnosed cancer. These two well-drawn characters are the heart of the novel, and Karen White's somber, serious performance admirably brings them both to life. A Minotaur hardcover (Reviews, Nov. 2). (Feb.)
