THE FIELDS

As the Iowa State Fair draws near, a young woman's mutilated body is found in a corn field owned by a cooperative hoping to win this year's Iowa Food Prize.  Newly promoted sergeant, Riley Fisher, is horrified to discover that the dead woman is a childhood friend.  Under strict orders to wrap it up quickly, while maintaining her professional distance, Riley finds herself looking for a serial killer when more bodies are found with an obvious connection to the first.  Young certainly did her homework when researching the Midwest and Big Ag.  She created a gripping backdrop to a grisly investigation.  There's a lot going on in this graphically detailed novel besides the murders, but it's not difficult to follow and you'll most likely come away a fan of Riley and awaiting the next installement.
