The Drum Within

LISA SCOTTOLINE, New York Times bestselling author and Past President, Mystery Writers of America:
"Nothing makes me happier than the debut novel of a brilliant new writer, and I was wowed by Jim Scarantino's The Drum Within. An experienced prosecutor, Scarantino imbues his muscular legal thriller with authentic police procedure and legal detail, and drenches it with a canny insider's view of the way things really work in precinct houses and judges' chambers. Best of all, his main character Detective Denise Aragon ranks as one of the most fully-realized, strongest female characters I've read in crime fiction. Aragon powers her way through this twisty plot, racing after one of the most lethal and credible villains you'd ever want to meet, serial killer Cody Geronimo. The Drum Within is a superb novel, and this is a hearty welcome to an insanely talented newcomer, Jim Scarantino."

ROBERT DUGONI, #1 Amazon and New York Times bestselling author of MY SISTER'S GRAVE:
"The Drum Within is a gritty police procedural that will make you rethink everything you know about justice. A tour de force of good guys and bad guys. A masterpiece. I loved it."
