Dead Hot: A Dakota Mystery
by M.K. Coker
After losing a brutal election, Sheriff Karen Mehaffey and her uncle, Detective Marek Okerlund, are headed from South Dakota to New Mexico for a long delayed vacation and job hunt. But they'd barely arrived when a man dies on their motel doorstep, the victim of radiation poisoning. Fated for a busman's holiday, Karen and Marek find themselves entangled in a case hotter than the New Mexico sun.
