Description

"Lost Hills is Lee Goldberg at his best. Inspired by the real-world grit and glitz of LA County crime, this book takes no prisoners. And neither does Eve Ronin. Take a ride with her and you'll find yourself with a heroine for the ages. And you'll be left hoping for more." --Michael Connelly, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"Thrills and chills! Lost Hills is the perfect combination of action and suspense, not to mention Eve Ronin is one of the best new female characters in ages. You will race through the pages!" --Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times bestselling author

A video of Deputy Eve Ronin's off-duty arrest of an abusive movie star goes viral, turning her into a popular hero at a time when the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is plagued by scandal. The sheriff, desperate for more positive press, makes Eve the youngest female homicide detective in the department's history.

Now Eve, with a lot to learn and resented by her colleagues, has to justify her new badge. Her chance comes when she and her burned-out, soon-to-retire partner are called to the blood-splattered home of a missing single mother and her two kids. The horrific carnage screams multiple murder--but there are no corpses.

Eve has to rely on her instincts and tenacity to find the bodies and capture the vicious killer, all while battling her own insecurities and mounting pressure from the media, her bosses, and the bereaved family. It's a deadly ordeal that will either prove her skills...or totally destroy her.

Review quote

"An energetic, resourceful procedural starring a heroine who deserves a series of her own." --Kirkus Reviews

"This nimble, sure-footed series launch from bestseller Goldberg...builds to a thrilling, visually striking climax. Readers will cheer Ronin every step of the way." --Publishers Weekly

"A cop novel so good it makes much of the old guard read like they're going through the motions until they can retire...the real appeal here is Goldberg's lean prose, which imbues just-the-facts procedure with remarkable tension and cranks up to a stunning description of a fire that was like 'Christmas in hell.'" --Booklist

"[The] suspense and drama are guaranteed to keep a reader spellbound..." --Authorlink

"This sterling thriller is carved straight out of the world of Harlan Coben and Lisa Gardner...Lost Hills is a book to be found and savored." --BookTrib

"What a police procedural should be: a clever and likable lead detective, a supporting cast of both hardworking and lazy cops, wisecracking (and occasionally ribald) station house banter, a smattering of quirky characters, a fast pace, a faithful depiction of investigative techniques, and a writing style as precise as a sniper's rifle." --New York Journal of Books

"Lost Hills is Lee Goldberg at his best. Inspired by the real-world grit and glitz of LA County crime, this book takes no prisoners. And neither does Eve Ronin. Take a ride with her and you'll find yourself with a heroine for the ages. And you'll be left hoping for more." --Michael Connelly, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"Lost Hills is what you get when you polish the police procedural to a shine: a gripping premise, a great twist, fresh spins and knowing winks to the genre conventions, and all the smart, snappy ease of an expert at work." --Tana French, New York Times bestselling author

"Thrills and chills! Lost Hills is the perfect combination of action and suspense, not to mention Eve Ronin is one of the best new female characters in ages. You will race through the pages!" --Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"Twenty-four-karat Goldberg--a top-notch procedural that shines like a true gem." --Craig Johnson, New York Times bestselling author of the Longmire series

"A winner. Packed with procedure, forensics, vivid descriptions, and the right amount of humor. Fervent fans of Connelly and Crais, this is your next read." --Kendra Elliot, Wall Street Journal and Amazon Charts bestselling author

"Brilliant! Eve Ronin rocks! With a baffling and brutal case, tight plotting, and a fascinating look at police procedure, Lost Hills is a stunning start to a new detective series. A must-read for crime fiction fans." --Melinda Leigh, Wall Street Journal and #1 Amazon Charts bestselling author

"A tense, pacy read from one of America's greatest crime and thriller writers." --Garry Disher, international bestselling author and Ned Kelly Award winner
