A Killing in China Basin
Baker & Taylor
Many consider homicide detective Ben Raveneau to be at the tail end of his career--not least his ambitious young partner, Elizabeth la Rosa. But Raveneau's long experience proves invaluable during the pair's investigation of a murder in San Francisco's China Basin district. The body of a young woman has been found in a derelict building, her ankles and wrists tied. Who was she, and what was she doing there? The more Raveneau uncovers, the clearer it becomes that the dead girl was involved in something sinister indeed. First in the brand-new DI Ben Raveneau crime series.

A new crime series set in San Francisco launches with a late night phone call. The body of a young woman lies in a trash-strewn room of a derelict building in China Basin. With that, veteran San Francisco homicide inspector, Ben Raveneau, and his hard-charging new partner, Elizabeth la Rosa, catch their first case together. But they can’t identify the victim and they don’t know why she was there. A false confession misleads and the apparent suicide but possible murder of an SF homicide inspector on medical leave may tie in. When Raveneau and la Rosa finally catch a break they are led into the past and a long ago case. A woman famous for her charitable works moves into focus and the inspectors adjust yet again. Now they’re close but are racing against someone intent on stopping them.
