The Maria Kallio Series (Book 3)
When former police sergeant Maria Kallio left Arpikylä, her tiny Finnish hometown, she promised herself she would never return. Then Arpikylä's sheriff offers her the job of deputy sheriff for the summer...Reluctantly, Maria returns home - and to the acrid smell from the town's now-closed copper mine - fully expecting that the men of the police station will calk at orders from a female boss. But she never expected that Johnny, her gorgeous former crush, could still make her dizzy with desire...or that the quiet summer will lead to murder.
Now Maria must figure out which of her lifelong friends has turned into a killer. But can she solve the case before the murderer strikes again - and another friend falls victim?
In this exciting addition to the wildly popular Maria Kallio mystery series, the past and the present collide violently for the beloved Finnish detective, leaving her future in grave danger.
