Blood on the Tracks (Sydney Rose Parnell Series Book 1) by [Nickless, Barbara]

A young woman is found brutally murdered, and the main suspect is the victim’s fiancĂ©, a hideously scarred Iraq War vet known as the Burned Man. But railroad police Special Agent Sydney Rose Parnell, brought in by the Denver Major Crimes unit to help investigate, can't shake the feeling that larger forces are behind this apparent crime of passion.
In the depths of an icy winter, Parnell and her K9 partner, Clyde―both haunted by their time in Iraq―descend into the underground world of a savage gang of rail riders. There, they uncover a wide-reaching conspiracy and a series of shocking crimes. Crimes that threaten everything Parnell holds dear.
As the search for the truth puts her directly in the path of the killer, Parnell must struggle with a deadly question: Can she fight monsters without becoming one herself?

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Blood on the Tracks (Sydney Rose Parnell Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
This was a twisting mystery that keeps you turning the pages. It was slow going at times, and I found myself skimming. But when you get to the meat of the story, it's thrilling. I like Sydney. She has issues and isn't worried about them showing. Clyde, what an awesome dog! The characters have depth and I enjoyed them. You get a good look into who they are.
I did feel confused about Sydney "seeing ghosts". I couldn't figure out if it was a metaphor of her past haunting her or if the author meant she could really see ghosts?
In all, I look forward to more by this author, and more of Sydney and Clyde.
