Dela Alvaro is a disable veteran who grew up on the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Reservation. When an IED in Iraq ended her military career, she came home to reassess her life and landed a job in security at the Indian run casino on the reservation.

Not even a year into being the assistant to the head of security, the head of security is found working with a human trafficking ring and Dela is promoted on a trial basis. When one of the casino employees is found stabbed and stuffed in a laundry chute, she knows she can kiss head of security good-bye if she doesn’t find the killer before the media gets hold of the story.

While she is in over her head, she can’t decide if the FBI Special Agent called in to help is a blessing or a curse. It’s a man she ran across in Iraq who overrode her authority. When a second casino employee is killed, Dela has to decide if she can trust the special agent with not only keeping her job but keeping the rest of the casino employees safe.

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
This is a new author for me and I found this book highly enjoyable. Dela is a disabled veteran. Hager captures her daily struggle well as she goes about as the head of security for the casino at the reservation. She has investigation skills from her time in the service so when a dead body is found in the laundry chute she gets started right away. Add in a disgruntled local cop that doesn't really like her and an FBI agent that has jurisdiction who she knows from years ago to get one intriguing mystery. They all play off each other quite well blending in other characters until you get a mystery that will have you hooked turning the page yo see what surprise is next. The dog was a nice touch as well. Makes for an enjoyable mystery that is sure to delight cozy fans looking for something a little different. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.
