About this title:

Synopsis: There's a special place for those who will enter hell to save an angel. That place is known as Special Section, Robbery Homicide, Los Angeles division. Detective Joan Lambert handles the cases nobody wants. She'll travel the road, no matter the danger, that leads her to the truth, justice for the dead, and her own redemption. In RESURRECTION DIVA, book one, SECOND EDITION of the Joan Lambert series, the story begins the morning she receives a huge crate from UPS. What's in the crate? Paintings, brushes and an easel, from her dead mother, sent by Joan's aunt all the way from the Ozarks. Joan has worked media madness cases for LAPD Homicide for five years. She thinks she’s seen everything until the victim in her latest case gets up and walks out of the morgue. Ten missing women, a small boy, and a fanatical voodoo cult thrust Joan into the investigation of a lifetime. She has to shut it all down before eleven people are sacrificed for the movie-record career of a young starlet. When a connection is made to a pharmaceutical drug that suspends the very essence of life creating real-life zombies, Joan knows she has to access every resource she has. Since she’s been taken off the case for injuries on the job, that adds up to black dog hairs, a psychic who offers dubious insights and the clues given to her by Hector, a dying pimp whose specialty is runaways. “Wow! Eva Batonne has certainly hit one out of the ballpark... Highly recommended.” JANIE FRANZ "I think there is a strong new voice in crime fiction and it comes from Eva Batonne. I really liked RESURRECTION DIVA. Batonne knows the secret, that the best crime novels are not only about how a cop works on a case, but how a case works on a cop. Detective Joan Lambert is a refreshing new character and I'd like to see more." MICHAEL CONNELLY “What's not to love about curling up with a hard-boiled detective crime novel? Well get comfortable. Eva Batonne's Resurrection Diva does not disappoint.” Peggy Tibbetts ADVICE FROM A CATERPILLAR advice, reviews, & interviews for writers & readers “Detective Lambert bears little resemblance to Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Milhone or Robert B. Parker’s Sunny Randall. She’s rougher around the edges, lives in the gritty world of Michael Connelly’s Harry Bosch, and suffers even greater angst than Connelly’s more famous LAPD detective. But give the lady time; Batonne may equal Bosch’s popularity...” KEN FERMOYLE, THE TOPANGA MESSENGER “Batonne has crafted a gripping spell binder that draws the reader into the tale from the outset, holds reader interest and keeps the pages turning... Settings are nicely detailed to bring the reader right into the scene. Characters are fully developed. Joan is believable, the scoundrels are suitably ill-famed, the tale itself is well written by a novelist having a fine grasp of language, situation and stratagem.” MOLLY MARTIN, REVIEWER’S BOOKWATCH “a tight, fast paced mystery novel. Eva Batonne gives the reader a glimpse at the seamy underbelly of Hollywood. The plot is solid, with totally believable characters and situations... police procedures are right on target as well.” BRUCE VON STIERS, GOODREADS.COM "... Eva Batonne's RESURRECTION DIVA, casts a bright light on L.A.'s dark side, where blind ambition rules and beauty is no more than skin deep. An absolute page-turner. KRIS NERI, AUTHOR OF THE AGATHA, ANTHONY AND MACAVITY AWARD-NOMINATED TRACY EATON MYSTERY SERIES
