MoterWriters.com previews the hit novel – Cold Case, 99-5219
A new cozy mystery from Best Selling author Betta Ferrendelli
A cold case that has been sitting on the backburner of the Denver PD piques the interest of Samantha Church, an ace reporter with the Grandview Perspective newspaper. Baby Hope has been dead for over 12 years and everyone has given up on this case for lack of leads. But for this brilliant journalist with a troubled past, it is almost serendipitous how she is pulled in deeper & deeper into this decade old case.
Sam has a nose for the truth and she quickly discovers inconsistencies and some very unusual activities related with the case. With more and more missing crucial links turning up, this cold case suddenly becomes a high-profile murder investigation that threatens to expose many high profile individuals.
Mysterious, emotional and heart wrenching at times – this investigative fiction is like no other.
Cold Case, 99-5219 is the fourth book in the Samantha Church series by the author. Her mystery novels span the gamut of crime fiction. They are multi-layered books that take a deeper look at what it means to be alive in a big city. The Samantha Church series is a hardboiled series featuring a female journalist and numerous recurring secondary characters.
