Overview

Sensational crime, intrepid reporter, deaths too close to home...

Seeing Sammy "the Bull" Gravano strut through a Phoenix restaurant shocks investigative reporter Joya Bonner. The notorious Mafia hitman - nineteen murders - and FBI snitch - testimony sent Godfather John Gotti to prison - is hidden in the federal Witness Protection Program, yet he's now a successful drug lord. His products travel national highways with tragic results for Joya's Midwest hometown, where grief turns to revenge, violence, and murder. By chasing the biggest scoop of her career, Joya risks her job, her love, and her life to see if Sammy can be stopped. Can she spur her family and neighbors at home to do more than let sleeping dogs lie?

As she did in Cattle Kate (2014), veteran crime reporter Bommersbach draws on actual events for this ripped-from-the-headlines novel, which finds an odd but mostly effective way to show both ends of Americas illegal drug trade. In Phoenix, Ariz., in 1999, reporter Joya Bonner becomes aware that Mafia turncoat Sammy the Bull Gravano is bamboozling the FBI by using his refuge in the Federal Witness Protection Program to run a narcotics ring thats distributing pills all the way to Joyas peaceful hometown of Northville, N.Dak., where the death of 17-year-old Amber Schlener from a bad dose of Ecstasy sparks misguided vigilante violence. In Phoenix, Joya covers the police investigation that nails Sammy and his son. Back home in Northville, she keeps a lazy sheriff from arresting the wrong peoplebut its almost certain that the towns smug innocence has been lost. Sharp writing and incisive characterization bring both stories to life. (Feb.)
