It's Kate Murphy's first day on the job, and the Atlanta Police Department is seething after the murder of an officer.

Worse still, in the ensuing manhunt, she'll be partnered with Maggie Lawson, a cop with her own ax to grind (and a brother and uncle already on the force)-a strategy meant to isolate Kate and Maggie from the action. But the move will backfire, putting them right at the heart of it.Cop Town is an incredibly atmospheric nail-biter from the author the Huffington Post called an "e;exemplary storyteller"e; and "e;one of the great talents of the twenty-first century."e;
