Focused on Murder

A Spirit Lake Mystery

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Britt Johansson is a former Pulitzer prize-winning LA Times photographer whose reckless behavior nearly ended her career. She gets a chance to redeem herself when she's working in Northern Minnesota and stumbles across an international crime ring that ultimately pits her and her brother against a psychopathic killer. Her hometown of Spirit Lake is a perfect location for all kinds of dirty deeds: easy entry points along the vast wilderness of the US/Canadian border, an Indian reservation that’s off limits to most law enforcement, and a dangerously mistaken perception that nothing happens in small towns.

Customer Reviews

Fast paced and exciting!

I love this book! It grabbed me from the first paragraph and didn’t let go. The main character, Britt, is intriguing and mysterious in her own right. She’s a character I want to know more deeply. The secondary characters are like that, too. And, what’s not to love about a small town in Northern Minnesota? The setting is well-developed and makes me want to hop in the car and drive north today. It’s a great stand-alone mystery, and a fabulous set-up as a series opener. The story is gripping, the action intense, and it’s a book I’ll read over and over. Can’t wait for the next one!
