Smugglers, old rivalries, and family troubles strike close to home for Agent Cote
Border Patrol Agent Peyton Cote returns home to northern Maine, hoping for a quieter and safer environment for herself and her eight-year-old son. But her homecoming isn’t as easy as she thought it would be. Dealing with her ex-husband, her sister with a big secret, and finding her place again in her old hometown is hard enough without the surprise bundle she discovers one night while on stakeout. Hoping to witness and bust a marijuana drop, Peyton instead finds a baby abandoned in a frozen field. And when she tries to figure out where the child belongs, Peyton is pulled into a deadly conspiracy.
“Packed with thrills and high-octane action, Bitter Crossing is an impressive debut with a fearless heroine you’ll want to follow for many adventures to come.”—TESS GERRITSEN, NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE RIZZOLI & ISLES SERIES
"Bitter Crossing is my favorite kind of page turner, enlivened by a compelling heroine—U.S. Border Patrol Agent Peyton Cote—and set in a place so strongly described it is almost a character itself: the remote no man’s land between northern Maine and Canada." —PAUL DOIRON, AUTHOR OF MASSACRE POND
