Publisher's Summary

A detective is forced to confront the demons of her past while investigating the death of an old friend in the first novel of Chris Culver’s gripping Joe Court Series.

Detective Mary Joe Court sleeps with a shotgun beside her bed and a lovable bull mastiff at her feet. For the past 12 years, she’s hidden from a nightmarish past, but with every passing day, her scars fade, and her heart grows lighter. Now, for the first time in her life, she looks forward to her future. She’s happy.

Then she finds the body.

Someone shot the victim in her chest and left her to die in a cheap motel. Joe knew her well. She grew up with her. They were sisters, of a sort.

Twelve years ago, the victim put a gangster in prison. Now that gangster’s out, and he’s looking to settle scores - Joe included. Joe has fought to leave her past behind. Now, she has to face it or lose everything she cares about. Because the killer hunting her will tear apart her carefully constructed life piece by piece until there’s nothing left.

Unless Joe gets him first.

Be Consistent!

Ever since I discovered audible books, I don’t sit down and read anymore. I just listen when driving, doing chores or walking the dog. I really don’t appreciate or understand why, when books come in series form, that the first book would be in audio form, but the rest of the books in the series are not. You are losing sales by doing this! I really want to continue the series but not enough to read them. This is not the first time I’ve encountered this problem.

Great Mystery

The Work starts out slow, but once the action starts you won’t be able to put it down.
