Q Is for Quarry - 02 edition

Q Is for Quarry (ISBN10: 0399149155; ISBN13: 9780399149153)
ISBN13: 978-0399149153
ISBN10: 0399149155

Summary: Quarry , n. An open excavation.
Quarry , v. Transitive: To dig or take from. Intransitive: To delve into.
Quarry , n. An object pursued or hunted; prey. She was a ''Jane Doe,'' an unidentified white female whose decomposed body was discovered near a quarry off California's Highway 1. The case fell to the Santa Teresa County Sheriff's Department, but the detectives had little to go on. The woman was young, her hands were bound with a length of wire,
there were multiple stab wounds, and her throat had been slashed. After months of investigation, the murder remained unsolved.

That was eighteen years ago. Now the two men who found the body, both nearing the end of long careers in law enforcement, want one last shot at the case. Old and ill, they need someone to help with their legwork and they turn to Kinsey Millhone. They will, they tell her, find closure if they can just identify the victim. Kinsey is intrigued and agrees to the job.

But revisiting the past can be a dangerous business, and what begins with the pursuit of Jane Doe's real identity ends in a high-risk hunt for her killer.
