Dangerous Pursuits

The smallest towns sometimes hold the deadliest secrets.

But the smallest clues can sometimes blow a case wide open.

Politics is a dirty game. When a dancer is found murdered, crime reporter Leah Nash is drawn into an investigation that seeks to expose the corruption and murder at the center of her small midwestern town.

But two brothers rule the town with an iron fist, and the locals are falling in line behind their alibis, from the sheriff on down.

It’s politically convenient in a hotly contested election season for the death of a dancer to get brushed under the rug, explained away as a crime of passion by a strip club’s bouncer. But when the coverup becomes personal to Leah Nash, she goes up against a system built to protect those in power, and to crush those who threaten it—whatever the cost may be.
