Detective Maxine Ferrari was sure the sheer boredom of this job would be her undoing. In the four months since she took the position in the tiny, high desert town of Prineville, Oregon, the only crime requiring any detection was a break-in at the state liquor store. There hadn't been a murder in all of Crook County since Lucy O'Conner found her husband in bed with a hooker, and shot him dead, some seven years ago. All that changed with the arrival of Sarah Castleman. Before the summer was over, two men had gone missing, one had been murdered and Max was, inexplicably, infatuated with the prime suspect. The detective didn't have a clue, until it was too late, that the bombshell about to land in her lap was going to destroy everything she believed to be true about her investigation. More than that, it would call into question Max's own beliefs about herself.

About the Author

For years I have been a writer of poetry; you know, the short stuff one can fit between raising an amazing child, as well as two husbands, while pursuing a career? Upon reaching retirement, I found a wife (smile) and the time needed for the other love of my life -writing the long stuff. The Performance is my first full-length novel. It was so much fun I had to do it again! Watch for my second novel: In the Mean Time. Coming soon!
