By His Own Hand: A Newberg Novel

Neal Griffin

Forge Books, 2018

Agent: Jill Marr

Neal Griffin returns with a chilling tale of religion, racism, and murder in small-town America.

Former Marine Tia Suarez has made a name for herself in the Newberg PD: troublemaker, seeker of justice, a good cop's best friend and a bad cop's worst nightmare. When a Native American teen is found dead on the grounds of a Christian religious retreat, Tia is determined to find out who killed him despite being stonewalled by all involved.

"Engrossing...Griffin, a 25-year law enforcement veteran, paints a vivid picture of the difficulties of police work, in particular the harassment Tia endures from her male colleagues on account of her gender."
Publisher's Weekly

“Detective Tia Suarez is everything I love in a heroine: brash, persistent, and smart as a whip.  Add Neal Griffin to your list of must-read crime writers!”
Tess Gerritsen, author of the Rizzoli and Isles series

"With crackling dialogue, dead-on police procedure, and a smart, feisty heroine in Detective Tia Suarez, Neal Griffin delivers."
