Trudy Nan Boyce - Out of the Blues

Signed First Edition

On her first day as a newly minted homicide detective, Sarah “Salt” Alt is given the cold case murder of a blues musician whose death was ruled an accidental drug overdose. Now, new evidence has come to light that he may have been given a hot dose intentionally. And this evidence comes from a convicted felon hoping to trade his knowledge for shortened prison time…a man who Salt herself put behind bars.

In a search that will take her into the depths of Atlanta’s buried wounds—among the city’s homeless, its politically powerful churches, commerce and industry, and the police department itself—Salt probes her way toward the truth in a case that has more at stake than she ever could have imagined. At once a vivid procedural and a penetrating examination of what it means to be cop, Out of the Blues is a stunning debut from a new talent in crime fiction.
