A Voice from the Field

Neil Griffin’s main character, Tia Suarez, is one of the most interesting detectives I’ve read in a long time. First, she’s a woman and most of the interesting characters in crime novels are men. She’s also a Mexican-American who in the past year was shot on the job and had a public mental breakdown in a courtroom.

At the beginning go A Voice from the Field Suarez is working undercover as a prostitute who is the only only who sees a hispanic girl tied up in the back of the guy that gets away. With her past, no one believes that the girl was really there and Suarez starts spiraling into a drunken stupor. There are many other complications to her investigation, including a white supremacist organization, a drug operation, and the multiple other government agencies vying for the score.

Great read! I’ll look out for another Neil Griffin.
