A Single Red Alibi by Jude Hardin (Midnight Creek Investigations #2)
English | 2023 | Mystery & Thriller
He’s a government operative from the future posing as a present-day PI, surreptitiously traveling to other time periods to keep tabs on a man who’s keeping tabs on a former army officer named Reacher. His overarching goal is to reunite with his wife and stepdaughter, who are currently stranded in another century.
She’s an ousted Navy SEAL with an altered DNA profile—an extreme and irreversible genetic modification achieved synthetically following a brutal abduction. The change is remarkable. Unprecedented. Potentially lethal. It’s her superpower. And her kryptonite. And to complicate matters even further, the senior naval officer responsible for destroying her military career is stationed nearby. She fears that it’s only a matter of time until their paths cross again.
Apprenticing under Granite now at Midnight Creek Investigations, Radko spends the bulk of her weekday mornings and afternoons in a grimy converted storage closet, performing background checks and sending invoices. Every now and then she gets to spy on a cheating spouse. Or a dubious insurance claimant. It’s all fairly routine.
Until a woman who might be facing murder charges shows up.
