Former Las Vegas Homicide Detective Jim Snow has found himself in a tenuous position with his partner Alice James. She's the other half of their Private Eye firm James & James and she's back in her hometown tending to her sick mother and contemplating a career change. This leaves Snow alone in Las Vegas to work his newest case involving the drowning of a former Deputy District Attorney on Lake Mead. But that's only half the job. He'll also have to find the victim's monkey that was with her in her boat that night—and babysit until he can find a primate shelter with a vacancy. Snow struggles to uncover the events leading up to the drowning, dealing with a diverse assortment of suspects including the victim's twin sister, an ambulance-chasing estranged husband, an unscrupulous loan shark, and an ex-convict with a bad attitude. Adding to Snow's frustration sifting through the clues, he'll have to work this case on his own—with a monkey riding shotgun instead of the brilliant Alice James.

“A tremendous talent.”—Lee Child In award-winning author Suzanne Chazin’s stirring new novel, Latino police detective Jimmy Vega must strike a precarious balance between the local immigrant community and his hometown’s most powerful and privileged citizens during a dangerous murder investigation... A split-second decision thrusts Detective Jimmy Vega into the epicenter of a disturbing case when a body is found near a gathering place for immigrants in upscale Lake Holly, NY. The cold-bloodedness of the crime and the innocence of the victim torment Vega. In a community gripped by fear of deportation, Vega needs the help of his girlfriend, activist Adele Figueroa, to gain people’s trust. But Adele is acting strangely, consumed by a secret that threatens to tear them apart. When the case takes a personal turn, both Vega and Adele discover that Lake Holly’s tranquil façade hides a terror of monstrous proportions, poised and ready to strike again. To confront the killer and save their relationship, Vega and Adele must forge a new level of trust—in each other, and in their most deeply held beliefs—to expose an evil that threatens to eclipse anything they’d previously imagined. Written with equal parts passion and suspense, A Blossom of Bright Light takes readers on a journey of stunning revelations to uncover a small town’s most sinister secrets—and brightest hopes for the future. Mystery, sacrifice, and unremitting love converge in this gripping work by a master storyteller.
