Both my ‘Mailbox Monday’ offerings this week are books that I have purchased, given to my father to read and which have now come back to me to be read. He is of the opinion that both are good stories, so I am looking forward to adding them to my TBR pile.
It is also good to note, that both of these books have introduced female officers into the lead role of crime detection.

Then Julia disappears. Shortly afterwards her severed leg is found alongside the interstate highway in Kentucky.
