Summary

BILLY KEENE DIGS INTO A BIZARRE AND BRUTAL CASE 
Sheriff Billy Keene’s still learning on the job--and learning dark secrets about the colorful people in his small, odd hometown of Caulfield. 
Racist vandalism (correctly spelled, which passes for a solid clue in Caulfield) pops up after more than a few golfing buddies trade in their first wives for mail-order brides. 
So when one of the foreign brides is viciously attacked, Billy's unsure: Is he investigating a hate crime? Or a crime of passion? 
With his own love life in chaos - and his life-life in the cross-hairs - Billy discovers that intense passions of all kinds can push people to commit acts of heartbreaking kindness and unspeakable brutality. 
In Broken Heartland, the second Billy Keene book, award-winning crime fiction author Chad Sanborn gives readers a menacingly suspenseful page-turner that's both savagely funny and unflinchingly human.

    As a practiced reporter until her newspaper went to that great pressroom in the sky, P.I. Tess Monaghan knows and loves every inch of her native Baltimore, even the parts being slobbered on by the sad-sack greyhound she's minding for her uncle. It's a quirky city where baseball reigns, but lately homicide seems to be the second most popular local sport. Business tycoon "Wink" Wynkowski is trying to change all that by bringing pro basketball back to town, and everybody's rooting fro him -- until a devastating, muckraking expose of his lurid past appears on the front page of the Baltimore Beacon-Light. It's a  
    surprise even to the Blight's editors, who thought they'd killed the piece. Instead, the piece killed Wink -- who's found in his garage with the car running. 
    Now the Blight wants to nail the unknown computer hacker who planted the lethal story, and the assignment is right up the alley of a former newshound like Tess. But it doesn't take long for her to discover deeper, darker secrets, and to realize that this situation is really more about whacking than hacking. It's just murder in Baltimore these days -- and Tess Monaghan herself might be next on the list.
