A disgraced cop. A case gone wrong. A danger she never saw coming.
Laura Romano is a dishonored cop and an addict. After being sold out by her biker boyfriend, she’s reassigned to Tunnel Island, a tropical paradise with a dark, seedy underbelly. When the son of an influential politician turns up dead, Romano teams up with a hard-nosed sheriff to investigate.
As the clues point to a pair of junkies from the island’s south side, Romano knows there are too many loose ends to let the case go. What she doesn’t realize is that someone on the island knows the truth about the case. Someone who will stop at nothing to keep the truth a secret…
Drainland is the first book in a new series of crime mysteries. If you like hardboiled female protagonists, gritty crime mysteries, and a dash of tropical paradise, then you’ll love Iain Ryan’s fast-paced page-turner.
