"For mall cop E.J. Ferris, catching customers who "forgot to pay" is quite a change of pace from her former life in the military. But when a real crisis heats up her climate-controlled domain, her old instincts come back quicker than last year's skinny jeans. On good days, Fernglen Galleria is a tranquil haven of capitalist splendor, but today is not one of those days. Arriving for her morning shift, E.J. spots a sleeping homeless person outside the east entrance. But the teenage boy turns out to be neither homeless nor asleep. He is, however, dead. With half the security cameras sabotaged, no one can be sure what happened. E.J. is determined to help solve the case, whether Homicide Detective Helland likes it or not. Uncovering a deadly conspiracy right in her own mall, E.J is about to catch a killer, or get put on lay-away for good"--From publisher description.
