5 thoughts on “Die Buying (A Mall Cop Mystery, #1)

  1. I love when an author set before a reader an intertwining mystery that may lead to dead ends, red herrings and a long list of suspects. Laura DiSilverio does just that with Die Buying. DiSilverio creates a great character in EJ a mall cop (for now) and a ex-military cop who due to an IED injury that left her with a trouble knee, retire from the military EJ still wants to be a cop and is buying her time until she lands her next dream job. In the meantime, she has a lot on her plate from dealing

  2. Emma-Joy Ferris (EJ) was serving her country in Iraq when shrapnel from an IED blast mangled her knee and lower leg and got her medically discharged and sent home.

The closest she can get to working police work is being a mall cop, which nor

  5. As a former Woman Marine (USMC) I really enjoyed the main sleuth, E.J. Ferris. Our E.J is a true Veteran of Afghanistan/Iraq.
