Overview

When Posadas Register reporter Linda Real barely survives her nighttime patrol with one of Undersherrif Bill Gastner's deputies who is killed by a more accurate shotgun blast than the one that ruins her face, Bill gets angry. Teamed with his intuitive, observant detective Estelle Reyes-Guzman and her usual sharp eye for physical evidence, Bill implicates Tammy Woodruff, the thrill-seeking daughter of the local Republican County Chairman, in the brutal assault. Before he can interrogate her, though, she scoots. Soon Tammy is found crushed to death after her truck goes off the road while she's loaded with booze-too much alcohol, in fact, for anyone to hold... Originally published in 1996 by St. Martin's Press, Before She Dies is the fourth Undersherrif Bill Gastner mystery following Poisoned Pen Press' releases of "Heartshot," "Bitter Recoil," and "Twice Buried."

Another great read. Each book in this series just gets better and better. The police procedures really are interesting and the mystery as to "who did it" stays fresh throughout the story. I am buying the books as soon as I finish the previous one and so far have not been disappointed. Strong story lines and good character development keep me picking these up each evening to continue reading.
