Murder Investigation Fiction
From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.
In this follow-up to Ice Shear (2014), widowed cop June Lyons struggles to decide whether to stay in her comfortable job as a police officer in the small town where she grew up or risk spending more time away from her young daughter by rejoining the FBI. When Officer Lyons pulls a mystery woman from a fire at a local factory, she never imagines that what is inside will be more chilling than the burning flesh she carried out of the flames. She couldn't be more wrong. Investigators not only find barrels of a banned chemical sealed inside a wall, but inside one of the steel drums they also find the body of a local woman who has been missing for decades. The factory's owner, Bernie Mede, is currently in prison for having killed his wife and child, although their bodies were never found. Will these recent revelations expose Mede as a serial killer or exonerate him altogether? The answers lie somewhere within a close-knit group of Ukrainian immigrants who live on the other side of the Mohawk River and have a history of solving problems among themselves. Another fast-paced procedural with a smart, empathetic female lead and a crisply evoked setting.--Keefe, Karen Copyright 2015 Booklist

When FBI agent-turned-small-town cop June Lyons discovers a woman in a burning warehouse, she's able to get the badly burned, comatose victim out in the nick of time. Further investigation of the charred ruins uncovers the body of a woman in a barrel hidden behind a false wall. She is first assumed to be Luisa Lawler, the wife of Bernie Lawler, a man whom June's father put away for murder decades ago. But the dead woman is not Luisa, and June teams up with former flame and colleague Hale Bascom (who is also trying to woo her back into the FBI). In the process of their probe, they unearth secrets that have been simmering for years under the surface of quiet Hopewell Falls, NY, and that may hit close to home for June and her family. Verdict In her second superb mystery (after Ice Shear), Cooley has upped her game with a whip-smart, complicated heroine and a labyrinthine domestic mystery that will surprise and delight fans of her first book, while earning the author scads of new fans.-Kristin Centorcelli, Denton, TX Â© Copyright 2015.

Cooley's solid second police procedural featuring former FBI special agent June Lyons (after 2014's Ice Shear) finds June, now a cop in her hometown of Hopewell Falls, N.Y., not quite over the death of her husband, Kevin, three years earlier-and facing a welter of crimes involving the volatile Ukrainian-American family of her police partner, Dave Batko. Soon after June saves a woman from a burning abandoned clothing factory, a mummified body is found in a sealed barrel walled up in the factory's basement. The two cases intertwine in a complex and not always convincing plot that twists its lengthy way through sibling rivalries and other tensions, such as June's vacillation over rejoining the Bureau, and her problematic relationship with her aging hippie mother. Though a little heavy-handed with June's emotional flare-ups, Cooley does well by Ukrainian culture and cuisine, while assuring readers that today's women cops and perps can both be tougher than their male counterparts.
