Wel​come to the official website of author, Catherine Lea, who also writes under the pen name, C.J. Lea. 

 

I'd like to introduce you to my latest novel - a police procedural set in small town New Zealand:

THE WATER'S DEAD - A DI NYREE BRADSHAW NOVEL
The chin tattoo confirms the victim is Maori. The whorls of ink from her lower lip to her chin—the moko, is worn only by Maori women. So, her ethnicity is a given. Finding who murdered Huia Coburn, and dumped her body in the volcanic rock pool at the base of Mason’s Rock waterfall has now fallen to DI Nyree Bradshaw.

Nyree failed as a mother, struggles with relationships, but thrives as one of New Zealand’s top investigators. However, no sooner has she begun pulling in data, rallying the local constabulary, and searching for suspects, she discovers six-year-old diabetic, Lily Holmes is missing, last seen in Huia’s care.

Now, Nyree must put all personal tragedy, and ongoing work disputes aside to find her.

She has already failed her own son. She cannot fail this child.

A gripping thriller that will have you guessing to the very last page.
