Summary

How far would you trust your Ex when it comes to murder? 
PI Sydney Brennan's first error in judgment: performing a background check for her ex-boyfriend. Her second: delivering the report in person to his upstate New York home, where a man is murdered shortly after her arrival. Will believing her ex is innocent be the third error that leads to another murder? 
Sue Grafton fans will find Kinsey's kindred spirit in Sydney Brennan, a Florida private investigator with a knack for getting into trouble who doesn't know when to quit. Secrets in Stockbridge (176 pp.) is the second book in the Sydney Brennan Mysteries and a stand-alone novella. If you're looking for a mystery with believable characters and "just enough humor to offset the dark," click to download and read Secrets in Stockbridge today! 
FROM BACK COVER:  Private investigator Sydney Brennan has reservations when wealthy businessman Bran Woodford asks her to deliver a Florida background check--in person--to his upstate New York home. A wise woman limits contact with her ex-boyfriend, no matter how big his bank account. But, as usual, when Sydney's curiosity is piqued, wisdom flies out the window. 
Within 24 hours of Sydney's arrival, there is a murder on the Woodford estate, and Bran quickly becomes the prime suspect. Is the victim's shady past to blame, or does the motive for murder lie within the estate's manicured grounds? It's up to Sydney to find the murderer, before the Secrets in Stockbridge can claim their next victim.

    From New York Times bestselling author of the acclaimed McCabe and Savage series comes an electrifying new thriller of taut and twisted suspense. 
    On a freezing December night, Hannah Reindel leaps to her death from an old railway bridge into the rushing waters of the river below. Yet the real cause of death was trauma suffered twelve years earlier when Hannah was plucked from a crowd of freshman girls at a college fraternity party, drugged, and then viciously assaulted by six members of the college football team.  
    Those responsible have never faced or feared justice. Until now. A month after Hannah’s death, Joshua Thorne—former Holden College quarterback and now a Wall Street millionaire—is found murdered, his body bound to a bed and brutally mutilated.  
    When a second attacker dies in mysterious circumstances, detectives Mike McCabe and Maggie Savage know they must find the killer before more of Hannah’s attackers are executed. But they soon realize, these murders may not be simple acts of revenge, but something far more sinister.  
    The Girl on the Bridge is a compelling and harrowing tale of suspense that once read will not easily be forgotten.

    Juggling a family and a career has never been easy for Cochise County Sheriff Joanna Brady. Now the impending birth of her second child only adds to her burden, especially when two brutal crimes fall under her jurisdiction.  
    A corpse is discovered in the Arizona desert with the fingers severed from both hands—the body of an ex-con who served twenty years for a murder he claimed not to remember. Soon after, one of Joanna's female officers is savagely assaulted and left for dead while on an unauthorized stakeout. Since the victim is one of their own, the department directs the bulk of its resources toward finding her attacker. But the desert slaying haunts Joanna as well, and neither her pregnancy nor family concerns will keep her from doing  her duty, no matter how perilous. Because justice must be served. And enforcing the law has become more than what Joanna Brady does—it's what she is.
