Nothing To Hide, a Roland March Mystery by J. Mark Bertrand

J. Mark Bertrand is the author of the crime novels BACK ON MURDER (2010), PATTERN OF WOUNDS (2011) and NOTHING TO HIDE (2012), featuring Houston homicide detective Roland March. He has an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Houston and lives with his wife Laurie in South Dakota.

From the book's back cover:
A grisly homicide. An international threat. The stakes have never been higher for Roland March.

The victim's head is missing, but what intrigues Detective Roland March is the hand. The pointing finger must be a clue--but to what? According to the FBI, the dead man was an undercover asset tracking the flow of illegal arms to the Mexican cartels. To protect the operation, they want March to play along with the cover story. With a little digging, though, he discovers the Feds are lying. And they're not the only ones.

In an upside-down world of paranoia and conspiracy. March finds himself dogged by injury and haunted by a tragic failure. Forced to take justice into his own hands, his twisting investigation leads him into the very heart of darkness, leaving March with nothing to lose--and nothing to hide.

From Jo:
Detective Roland March follows his hunches even in the face of probably losing his job. Twists and turns dominate as March follows lead after lead. Until he realizes he can trust no one. When he takes things into his own hands he finds himself so deep into the chain of command of the villains he can’t turn back. His plan will either make him the hero or the dumbest cop in town. Memorable characters, great mystery plot and descriptions, a fast-paced page-turner.
