Good outing for a first novel. The lead character June Lyons is well-drawn and interesting. The murder(s) and mystery were a little too complicated, and I don't think the author wrapped up all the loose ends (things were unexplained/glossed over and NOT in the "the sequel's coming!" way).

Smart and funny, and believably observant about all around her, June Lyons is the type of person you want on your side, and even to share a beer with! M.P. Cooley has written a complicated mystery that leaves you thinking about the characters and the choices they made well after finishing the book. Easy reading, satisfying ending!

"Once an F.B.I. agent with a promising career, June Lyons left it all behind to care for her dying husband in tiny Hopewell Falls, New York. Her regular routine -- drowning her grief in booze after the night shift with the town's police force -- comes to an abrupt end when she discovers the body of a young woman impaled on an ice shear in the frozen Mohawk River. The girl turns out to be the daughter of a prominent local politician -- and connected to a notorious biker gang. By the time the F.B.I. gets involved, it's clear that this murder won't be the last. With a "strong, fast-paced narrative" (Publishers Weekly) propelling the story, this debut marries a small-town setting to big-time crime." Thrillers and Suspense September 2014 newsletter
