A Brother's Cold Case (Paperback)
When the murder of Andy Cornell's brother is still unsolved after two and a half years, Andy enters Albuquerque's hidden worlds of cartel violence, street people, and Pueblo secrets to find justice.
He and Rick were inseparable as boys. So Andy is determined as a newspaper's police reporter to help the cold-case unit find a breakthrough on the murder of his detective brother.
Andy's ex-wife, a cold-case detective he once loved, a Pueblo tribal policeman, a college history professor, and a homeless drug informant seem unlikely allies. But they help Andy untangle conflicting details about his brother's cold case.
To solve Rick's murder, Andy must prove his own innocence when he becomes the suspect in the homicides of another man and a long-time reporter friend.
