Diane Fanning is the co-editor of ""Red Boots & Attitude"" and the author of ""The Windwalkers,"" Her stories and essays have been published in the ""Baltimore Sun"" and other periodicals. She is the Executive Director of Another Way Texas Shares, a non-profit federation. Fanning lives in New Braunfels, Texas with her husband, cat, and dog.
After a long and soul-searching healing process following her last case, homicide investigator Lucinda Pierce is ready to return to active duty. Her first case back involves the death of a young mother, Dr. Kathleen Spencer, whose body was found by her two young daughters, Charley and Ruby, their mother’s face unrecognizable after having been savagely crushed. The cop on the scene is Ted Branson, one of Lucinda’s old flames. More dead bodies emerge, all killed in the same face-smashing manner, turning Lucinda’s murder investigation into a serial-killer panic. Though she started out tentatively, Lucinda finds the work cathartic, helping her regain her confidence and womanhood. But will her emotional growth get her too personally involved in yet another case, so much so that she is put in peril? Fanning’s true-crime writing experience gives the story added verisimilitude, and she has made great strides at tightening her storytelling. She is one to watch. --Mary Frances Wilkens
