With Every Turn In The Case. . .

After moving from Los Angeles to Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri, homicide detective Claire Morgan has at last adjusted to the peaceful rhythms of rural life. Until a grisly celebrity murder at an ultra-exclusive "wellness" resort shatters a quiet summer morning. . .

With Every Twist Of The Mind. . .

One of Dr. Nicholas Black's high-profile clients, a beautiful young soap opera star, has been found dead, taped to a chair at a fully set table. . .submerged in the lake. Back in L.A., Claire investigated the rich, famous, and the deadly--but she never expected the problems of the privileged to follow her to this sleepy small town. Just as she never imagined crossing the line with her prime suspect. . .

With Every Beat Of The Heart. . .

Immersed in the case, Claire finds herself drawn to the charismatic doctor, spending more and more time in his company--and in his bed. Now, to catch a killer, Claire will have to enter the darkest recesses of the human mind. But is Black leading her there to help her. . .or luring her ever deeper into a madman's grip?

"A feisty new heroine to root for. . .Ladd is a bright new voice in suspense!" --Patricia Gaffney

Though Ladd saddles Morgan with an all-purpose tragic past and occasional logic-deficient reasoning, she's a smart, strong character capable enough to avoid the woman-in-distress scenarios her genre colleagues so typically fall into.

Reviewing the Evidence

Above average

Some of the ideas, actions and characters in HEAD TO HEAD are stereotypes and cliches. The airhead police dispatcher sharing more information than she should is merely example.
