Her debut was good – The 37th Hour but this is even better, this is crime fiction at its best so if you enjoy American crime then do give Jodi Compton the time of day. Itâs suspenseful, gritty, well plotted, sharply observed, and a real page turner with plenty of unexpected surprises. She'll certainly keep you on your toes.

If you like Jodi Compton you might also like to read books by Sara Paretsky, Peter James and Ian Rankin.

Synopsis

Sympathy Between Humans by Jodi Compton

On the streets of Minneapolis, Sarah has worked everything from vice to missing persons. But six months after the death of a small-time criminal in rural Minnesota, Sarah is still protecting the identity of a killer. And now, a zealous D.A.`s investigator has come to town, determined to make an arrest.

Surrounded by colleagues who know her to be a murder suspect, Sarah keeps her demons at bay by involving herself in the troubles of strangers. However, as she crosses one ethical line after another, Sarah increasingly fears that a mis-step on her part will end not only in her disgrace, but in the death of one of those she has promised herself she will protect.
