On the streets of Minneapolis, Sarah has worked everything from vice to missing persons. But six months after the death of a small-time criminal in rural Minnesota, Sarah is still protecting the identity of a killer. And now, a zealous D.A.'s investigator has come to town, determined to make an arrest.



Surrounded by colleagues who know her to be a murder suspect, Sarah keeps her demons at bay by involving herself in the troubles of strangers. However, as she crosses one ethical line after another, Sarah increasingly fears that a mis-step on her part will end not only in her disgrace, but in the death of one of those she has promised herself she will protect.

Here's what you say about us...

Jodi Compton is from Northern California, but lived for three years in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the main setting for her novels. She has worked for the Minneapolis bureau of the Associated Press, and as a sub-editor at a newspaper on California's central coast. In the latter position, she closely followed crime and courts news on the wires, and during this time wrote her first novel, THE 37TH HOUR. The sequel, SYMPATHY BETWEEN HUMANS was published in 2005.

Praise for Jodi Compton's first novel:

The police procedural aspects of the book are gritty, sharply observed . . . a page turner with wry surprises.
Sunday Age, Australia

Tangled Web

First-class, serious crime fiction
Publishers Weekly

A gripping piece of storytelling that gets better the deeper the reader gets into it. This could easily hit the bestseller lists. Superb
Independent

Compton's debut really promised awesome talent and this well-plotted, addictive follow-up delivers it.
Scottish Daily Record

New York Times Book Review

Compton is a considerable and rather original talent.

Not one for those who want blood, bodies and action, but highly recommended for those seeking crime fiction in which the writer builds not only suspense, but well-crafted, credible characters, and has a serious, intellectually stimulating story to tell
South China Morning Post

A dazzling debut
Kirkus Reviews (starred)

Cleverly thought-out tale...With a great plot and characters you can care about, this is definitely one for a great beach read.
