For testifying to a federal grand jury about local police corruption, Chicago Homicide Detective Kate Delaney, receives death threats.  She is a defender of innocents, of victims; her life is black and white, by the book.  When she receives a call from the New Orleans Police Department about her estranged sisterís death, she is very upset.  They are not treating her sisterís death as any death should be treated, but it is not her territory.  It is not a question of should, but of how, she can investigate.

PI Nick Broussard is a former SEAL as well as a former New Orleans Police Detective.  He has lived in New Orleans his whole life; he knows the players and is familiar with the territory.  By the book is not how he has lived.  He has wanted Kate Delaney from the moment he laid eyes on her.  Investigating her sisterís death with Kate allows him to discover secrets that others do not want found.

No Safe Place is a thriller set in post-Katrina New Orleans.  JoAnn Ross has allowed me a glimpse into a city that has managed to keep its history, holding onto the present, while rebuilding towards its future.  And, at the same time she has created a wonderful tale of suspense and romance.  From the first moment I picked up No Safe Place, I was held enthralled by her characters and their search for answers.  I recommend No Safe Place, as I could not stop reading it.
