Lanier does for bloodhounds what Dick Francis does for racehorses in her atmospheric, and critically applauded, novels set in rural Georgia.
Jo Beth Sidden is a fiercely independent woman who raises and trains bloodhounds for search-and-rescue missions and to track down escaped prisoners in South Georgia's Okefenokee Swamp. Jo Beth's got her hands full when the local police chief hires her to sniff out a local marijuana grower and a friend asks her to locate a kidnapped man -- even though the FBI is on the case. And when her sociopath of an ex-husband Bubba gets out of prison and begins stalking her, Jo Beth will need to use all her skills --and her bloodhounds --to outwit Bubba, to help the police and to best the FBI.
"Lanier's writing blends white-hot intensity with a lyrical sense of place that can render even a sticky humid Okefenokee Swamp as a setting I can't wait to visit again."
-Margaret Maron, bestselling author and winner of the Edgar, Agatha and Anthony Awards
