Get ready for a quirky, whodunit novel that delivers heart-pounding excitement from the first chapter. Another Foot in the Grave has all the elements you'd expect from a first-rate murder mystery-kidnapping, gruesome killings, and a detective heroine that is willing to hunt down a serial killer that makes Hannibal Lector seem tame. Lieutenant Killian Shelleen finds her squad car at the local cemetery. Demolished by a group of teenage grave robbers, she believes the case to be a run-of-the-mill vandalism. With her crack homicide team known as the Zombie Squad and her trusty canine, Dracula, a horrific discovery is unearthed. The foot of a murdered girl is found in a freshly buried grave. Killian's on a race with death as she and her detectives try to stop a madman from kidnapping and murdering young women in her quaint little town nestled in the San Francisco Bay area. Not only is this the biggest case of her life, but her romantic life is turned upside down by the new (and incredibly sexy) priest at her local church, Father Mason Denali. Can Killian rescue the killer's latest victim before time runs out? Will she give in to the mutual attraction of a forbidden love? She's in over her head and pulling out all the stops to solve the case and maybe, just maybe find the love of her life. Another Foot in the Grave is filled with unforgettable characters, sharp, observant writing and a cat and mouse chase that will keep you reading until the final pages.
