Jaden’s book, Racing the Devil, features Jared McKean, a man in flux. His son has Down syndrome, his best friend has AIDS, and the ex-wife he still loves is celebrating the first anniversary of her marriage to another man. A betrayal by a rebound romance has cost Jared his job with Metro Nashville’s murder squad, and in the aftermath, he’s launched a career as a private detective. In a vulnerable moment, he meets a battered woman who isn’t what she seems. She begs him for protection, then seduces him and frames him for murder. With his DNA and fingerprints at the murder scene, his voice on the victim’s answering machine, and ballistic evidence tying the bullet to his gun, things look bleak. All Jared wants is to clear his name and salvage the remnants of his fractured family, but it soon becomes clear that more than his reputation is at stake. She also has a just released book, A Cup Full of Midnight, featuring the same characters. http://www.jadenterrell.com.
