The Dead Deception
In a futuristic world, Detective Maria Pimienta’s new partner is Connor Burke, the first and only open werewolf detective. Maria’s coworkers warn her about the job’s dangerous nature, and how Connor’s partners have a tendency to get injured on the job. None of those injuries can be proven to be his fault, but seven partners ending up on disability pay is a lot to ignore.
Now a man has been murdered by a unusually strong teenage girl. Connor’s theory about the case is inconsistent, and he dismisses her at every turn. Maria starts to wonder if the man who’s supposed to have her back is hiding something… something that might have knocked his previous partners out of the field.
