The Scorekeeper - A Reed & Billie Novel
“I don’t even know if the call is real. All I know is there is some girl on the line saying her name is Della Snow and that she is trapped inside a box right now.”
It had started as a quiet night, a much needed reprieve for the overworked team of Detective Reed Mattox and his K-9 partner Billie. With just a single phone call from dispatch, both are plunged into a nightmare they could have never imagined.
Somewhere in the greater Columbus area, a young twenty-something is sealed away inside a coffin. With no recollection of how she got there or who might have put her there, she is desperate. Armed only with a dying cellphone and a waning oxygen supply, her hours on earth are limited.
Calling on every resource imaginable, Reed and Billie sprint headlong into the search, embarking on a twisted path that proves to be so much larger than they could have ever imagined. Bit by bit, their search takes them across the entire west side of the city, each stop building toward an explosive conclusion that could alter their partnership forever.
