Detective Mary Joe Court returns in the fourth novel in New York Times' bestselling author Chris Culver’s gripping Joe Court series.
The victim was shot multiple times by a .45-caliber pistol in the living room of a derelict home on the outskirts of St. Augustine county. The home has a meth lab in the bathroom and boxes full of camping supplies in the kitchen. A crib in the back bedroom holds wrinkled sheets and a tiny pacifier, but there’s no baby in the building.
When Detective Joe Court walks into the house for the first time, she already knows who the killer is: her department’s newest hire, Detective Reuben Terepocki. He claims he shot in self-defense, but Joe isn’t sure.
As she investigates, Joe uncovers a case far more deadly than she imagined. All her life, she’s tried to do the right thing no matter the cost to herself. Now, with an infant missing and a detective who clearly knows more than he lets on, doing the right thing won’t be enough.
If Joe can’t solve this case quickly, the man in the meth lab won’t be the only body St. Augustine has to bury.
The Man in the Meth Lab is twisty thriller with great characters. If you're a fan of Michael Connelly, James Patterson, or John Sandford, check out Chris Culver's Joe Court series today!
