Among the Dead by J.R. Backlund. Published by Crooked Lane

Rachel Carver turned her back on law enforcement when her last case ended with an innocent woman dead. Now, she’s reluctantly agreed to help her former partner by taking the lead on a murder case in the Carolina mountains. The team she’s leading has no experience in this type of law enforcement and Rachel knows she’s in for a rough go, but nothing prepares her for the death of one of her own detectives. Her old agency, the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation, takes control of the case, but Rachel doesn’t think they fully understand the case, and begins working it alone. As it turns out, Rachel is following the right path, but it could get her killed.I’m amazed this is Backlund’s first book, it’s a tension filled, wild ride with one of the most interesting protagonists I’ve encountered in a while
