Publisher's Summary

From an author with more than 30 years' experience in the Atlanta Police Department comes a riveting procedural debut introducing an unforgettable heroine.
On her first day as a newly minted homicide detective, Sarah "Salt" Alt is given the cold-case murder of a blues musician whose death was originally ruled an accidental drug overdose. Now new evidence has come to light that he may have been given a hot dose intentionally. And this evidence comes from a convicted felon hoping to trade his knowledge for shortened prison time...a man who Salt herself put behind bars.
In a search that will take her into the depths of Atlanta's buried wounds - among the city's homeless, its politically powerful churches, commerce and industry, and the police department itself - Salt probes her way toward the truth in a case that has more at stake than she ever could have imagined.
At once a vivid procedural and a penetrating examination of what it means to be cop, Out of the Blues is a remarkable crime debut.


What the Critics Say

Took way too long to get to any kind of point (3, count 'em, 3 separate dream sequences in the first few chapters alone - space wasters in my opinion), and once the point sort of began to swim into view, I found I didn't care. Rebecca Lowman is one of my favorite narrators ( the reason I tried this book in the first place), but even she couldn't save this for me.
