9780738742281: Drawing Blood (A Sketch in Crime Mystery)

CeCe Prentice and her Dumpster-diving pals are back on top . . . of a pile of trash

When Big Bob, manager of the town recycling center, goes missing, CeCe is worried about more than where she’ll score her next salvaged car. As one of the only people present when Bob’s body is recovered from under the weekly recycling haul, CeCe is able to identify witnesses and provide sketches of the scene. But when she’s startled by an unidentified woman at Bob’s empty house, CeCe’s artistic talents are challenged and her drawings come up short. With her observational skills on the fritz, CeCe joins Detective Frank DeRosa and her network of Freegan friends to re-create Big Bob’s life from the garbage up. The team is soon thrust into the underworld of recycling, where what appears to be junk could actually be the clue that saves a life.

Praise:

“A dysfunctional family to die for . . . [CeCe Prentice’s] second case is every bit as twisty and surprising.”―Kirkus Reviews
