Called to a crime scene, caught in a pursuit that will change his life forever. Or end it.
Chief Deputy Randall Steadman knows how to read people, making him tough to face in the interrogation room. He learns the hard way those tactics don’t apply at the poker table.
Watching the last of his money disappear in a pile of plastic chips, Steadman thinks it can’t get worse. Then new disaster strikes, spinning him off on a quest to catch a killer and protect an innocent girl, aided only by his new and untried partner, Detective Cory Frost.
Extortion, a deadly volcano, and a triple homicide mark the beginning of a long and winding road for Steadman and Frost.
If you like books by C.J. Box, Thomas Perry, and Jeffery Deaver, you’ve just found a new favorite in Steadman’s Blind!
Excerpt of interview with the author:
Jake: For those who’ve read the tie-in novel, Nocturne In Ashes, you say they’ll now get “the rest of the story?” How does Steadman’s Blind relate to Nocturne In Ashes?
Joslyn: Nocturne In Ashes shares the same time and setting as Steadman’s Blind—during the devastating aftermath of Mt. Rainier’s eruption. In Nocturne, a series of murders occurs and Steadman and Frost are dispatched to the scene of the crime. When you read Nocturne, you see it takes them three days to arrive. When you read Steadman’s Blind, you find out why. This book is the story behind those three days. And so much more.
Jake: I get it. Intriguing idea. So, do the two stories ever come together?
Joslyn: The stories do intersect during a couple of chapters, so if you’ve read one book, you’ll get to see some of the scenes through another character’s eyes. I think that makes it more fun and interesting for the reader, getting those different perspectives.
Jake: And do you have to read one book to get the full impact of the other?
Joslyn: No, you don’t have to, but I highly recommend it. Each can be read as a stand-alone, but it’s more fun reading them together!
