Out of the Blues

Written by Trudy Nan Boyce

Narrated by Rebecca Lowman

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars3/5 (23 ratings)
Length: 10 hours


From an author with more than thirty years' experience in the Atlanta Police Department comes a riveting procedural debut introducing an unforgettable heroine.

On her first day as a newly minted homicide detective, Sarah "Salt" Alt is given the cold-case murder of a blues musician whose death was originally ruled an accidental drug overdose. Now new evidence has come to light that he may have been given a hot dose intentionally. And this evidence comes from a convicted felon hoping to trade his knowledge for shortened prison time . . . a man who Salt herself put behind bars.

In a search that will take her into the depths of Atlanta's buried wounds-among the city's homeless, its politically powerful churches, commerce and industry, and the police department itself-Salt probes her way toward the truth in a case that has more at stake than she ever could have imagined. At once a vivid procedural and a penetrating examination of what it means to be cop, Out of the Blues is a remarkable crime debut.
