THE KILLING: Uncommon Denominator by Karen Dionne
(Titan Books; June 24, 2014)
When firefighters respond to a suspected meth explosion at a trailer park, they discover a man’s body in a neighboring trailer, unburned but with terrible head wounds. The meth cooker lies in critical condition, and undercover narcotics officer Stephen Holder feels a kinship with the child the man leaves behind.
Then another man’s body is discovered in a shipping container at the Port of Seattle, shot execution-style. For Homicide Detective Sarah Linden, two cases soon become one, and she must unravel a complex web of addiction, greed, and betrayal to reveal a killer.
"A terrific read . . . with good plot twists, red herrings, and heartbreaking details essential to any good noir.” — Aunt Agatha’s Bookstore
