At Ropes End by Edward Key. Published by Crooked Lane

Forensic psychologist James Verraday specializes in criminal profiling, and while you might think he and the police would be in good standing, the opposite is true. James holds nothing but contempt for law enforcement. That’s why he’s not overly thrilled to see Detective Constance MacLean in his lecture hall. She needs his help with a particularly difficult case. A woman has been found dead in a  cranberry bog and Constance believes it’s related to an earlier murder. The problem is, a man has already been arrested for the earlier crime, and Constance believes the detective in charge of the case is railroading an innocent man to make his solve rate look good. She needs James’s help to prove it and to find the real killer. James reluctantly agrees and He and Constance form a reluctant alliance to bring down police corruption and a killer. I enjoyed this book very much, Key does a good job developing his characters and seems to have a keen sense of police work
