Every Hidden Fear by Linda Rodriguez is the third mystery in the Skeet Bannion series about the Missouri campus police officer who must prove her son's friend didn't commit murder, even though her boss is quick to believe he did (available May 6, 2014).
In Every Hidden Fear, the third outing for Skeet Bannion, Linda Rodriguez’s half-Cherokee cop, bad boy Ash Mowbray returns to Brewster, Missouri. He has been hired by Walker Lynch, a nemesis of Skeet and someone she has sworn to take down, to push forward a controversial mall project. Passions already run hot over the proposed mall and Ash’s arrival further inflames feelings. The son of worthless parents, Ash had left town under a cloud:
“You! I remember you, Ashton Mowbray!” Bea’s voice was loud, with a hard, mean ring to it. “Son of a drug-dealing crook and a drunken whore. A charity case all your life. We all remember who you are. White trash of the worst sort. A bad seed. You ran away from here, where people knew who you were, but you couldn’t leave that behind. You still carry your dirtiness with you, no matter how much money you have now.”
