THE BURN (Detective Betty #2)

Kathleen Kent

There’s never a dull moment in Dallas, especially now that Detective Betty’s back. Rattled from a run-in with a cult and desperate for answers, she decides to go rogue -- but her investigation leads straight into the dark underworld of Dallas' drug cartel. Author Kathleen Kent brings us the new Detective Betty novel on its publication day, and Interabang is thrilled to host one of our favorites as she follows up her Edgar Award-nominated THE DIME (Detective Betty #1). Kathleen is also the author of three bestselling historical novels: The Heretic’s Daughter, The Traitor’s Wife, and The Outcasts. 

There’s not much that can make Detective Betty Rhyzyk flinch. But her wounds are still fresh from an encounter with the apocalyptic cult known as The Family, and she’s having trouble readjusting to life as it once was. She’s back at work as a narcotics detective, but something isn’t right -- at work, where someone has been killing confidential informants, or at home, where she struggles to connect with her wife, Jackie. To make matters worse, Betty’s partner seems to be increasingly dependent on the painkillers he was prescribed for injuries he sustained rescuing her.

Forced into therapy, a desk assignment, and domestic bliss, Betty’s at the point of breaking when she decides to go rogue, investigating her own department and chasing down phantom sightings of the cult leader who took her hostage. The chase will lead her to the heart of a drug cartel terrorizing Dallas, and to the crooked cops who plan to profit from it all.
