BOOK DESCRIPTION

Author Book

Jill Andersen is one of Baltimore's best and brightest detectives, but she harbors a dark secret -- a secret that threatens to come out when the body of Dr. Trent Roberts is pulled out of the Chesapeake Bay. Dr. Roberts' connection to Jill reveals a past that involves a tour in Iraq, a secretive cybernetic experiment, and a conspiracy that involves a native son.

Can Jill solve the case while still keeping her secret? Will her partners at the Seventh Precinct find out what she's so desperate to hide? What was Dr. Roberts looking into that led to his murder? And perhaps the biggest question of all...

Who is Bounty?

BOOK REVIEWS

Boundless Book Reviews

I didn't really know what to expect from this book, but I was very pleased. It was a very good read. It tells the story of a woman who is "modified" due to taking part in a hidden experiment. She is not only a cop, but a hidden vigilante. This book is written well and is full of crime drama and suspense. I absolutely love Jill and find her strength honorable. She went through a lot when she was young, but never let it stop her. She continued to grow and now she is doing what it takes to help out her city, on the front lines and behind the scenes. I want to say thank you for allowing me to read and review this book. It is definitely a good book and is one I'd highly recommend....Stormi

A Drop of Ink Reviews

I definitely have to say, this was a fun book to read. Jill Anderson reminds me of Kate Beckett from Castle. She is tough, no one is going to stand in her way, and she'll do what's right, no matter what. Jill's secret is given to the reader fairly early on in the book, so you don't need to wait long on that. How it plays out in solving Dr. Roberts' murder is fascinating. Unfortunately, it's the MAIN thing that fuels the entire story, so I can't say anything about it until you read it yourself. The mystery itself is well thought out, and even though you do know who the main bad guy is through the majority of the book, the not knowing if he'll be brought to justice or not hangs there until the end. There were a few twists and turns I didn't realize where going to happen, so it was enjoyable. Is it realistic? Of course not, it's fiction. And this book embraces what indie books are all about. J.D. Cunegan gives readers something they'd never run into in the mainstream publishing world. This is why I love indie books so much. The unique ideas that don't fly anywhere else. A few things I will mention here are there are some errors in the book. I normally gloss over them if they don't interfere with my reading, but several did jump out at me. Also, the formatting of the ebook isn't "traditional" formatting. The author preserved the double-space format. I do not know if this was intentional or not. I will say I rather enjoyed it as it gave my eyes a rest, but others might be bothered by it. (Edit: I apparently had an old copy as this problem has since been fixed.) All in all, I quite enjoyed it because of how different it was. If you're willing to take a chance on something different and out of the ordinary, then jump on in!
