Teaser Tuesday: Cut Short by Leigh Russell

"A booted foot came through the crack and the she clutched her weapon tightly. Above the boot a strip of dirty skin was exposed below a brown trouser leg."

~Page 309, Cut Short by Leigh Russell

Cut Short by Leigh Russell
D.S. Geraldine Steel expects the quiet town of Woolsmarsh to be dull. She quickly discovers she is wrong. The park is a place where children play, friends sit and gossip, people walk their dogs, or take a short cut to avoid the streets. But in the shadows a predator prowls, hunting for victims. A woman sees the killer and comes forward as a witness-someone whom the killer must stop at all costs. For D.S. Geraldine Steel, it is a race against time to find the killer before he strikes again, as public pressure mounts with the growing death toll.

That's why big towns are better, at least you expect the bad things to happen!
