Description

Having spent the last seven years in Texas, Border Patrol Agent Peyton Cote is returning home to northern Maine, hoping it will be a safer environment for her young son.

But the criminal element has turned what was once a quiet corner of the country into an illicit trade route . . . and there’s no telling what they’ll do to protect their interests.

When Peyton finds a baby abandoned in a frozen field near the border, she’s pulled into a deadly conspiracy that puts everything—her life, her career, her family—at risk.

“Packed with thrills and high-octane action” (Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author), Bitter Crossing takes fearless heroine Peyton Cote on a breakneck journey through the underground world of dangerous smugglers who play for keeps.

Praise:

“The author paints a striking portrait of the northern Maine landscape . . . Peyton’s strong personality and her unfailing courage should make for some intriguing future adventures."—Mystery Scene

"A solid bet for Nevada Barr and Tricia Fields fans."—Library Journal

"Packed with thrills and high-octane action, Bitter Crossing is an impressive debut with a fearless heroine you'll want to follow for many adventures to come."—Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of The Rizzoli & Isles Series

"Bitter Crossing is my favorite kind of page turner, enlivened by a compelling heroine—U.S. Border Patrol Agent Peyton Cote—and set in a place so strongly described it is almost a character itself: the remote no man’s land between northern Maine and Canada."—Paul Dorion, author of Massacre Pond
