"Goodbye to the Dead"

New from Quercus: Goodbye to the Dead by Brian Freeman.

About the book, from the publisher:

Detective Jonathan Stride's first wife, Cindy, died of cancer eight years ago, but her ghost hangs over Stride's relationship with his current lover, and fellow detective, Serena Dial. When Serena witnesses a brutal murder outside a Duluth bar, she stumbles onto a case with roots that go all the way back to the last year of Cindy Stride's life.

At the time, Cindy and Stride were on opposite sides of a domestic murder investigation. Janine Snow--a brilliant, successful surgeon transplanted to Duluth from Texas--was the prime suspect in the shooting death of her husband. Cindy believed her friend Janine was innocent, but Stride thought all the evidence pointed to the surgeon--even though the murder weapon was never found. Despite Cindy's attempts to help Janine, the case led to a high-profile trial.

The current investigation leads Stride down a twisted path in which women in the Duluth port are being targeted for human trafficking -- but after Serena's discovery, two unrelated cases years apart suddenly have a mysterious and baffling connection. And Stride begins to question whether he made a terrible mistake eight years ago.
