Baker & Taylor
The discovery of an unidentified pregnant woman whose body washes ashore on a rocky Boston beach and an anonymous tip to the Boston Police Department sends FBI agent Poppy Rice on a quest to uncover the truth about the current crime, one that is linked by DNA to a similar drowning that occurred more than thirty years earlier. 25,000 first printing.

McMillan Palgrave
The intrepid Poppy Rice is back with not one but two cases, separated by thirty years but connected by DNA

When the body of a young pregnant woman washes ashore on a stretch of barren beach at Boston Harbor, homicide detective Rocky Patel writes to FBI agent Poppy Rice for help in identifying the Jane Doe. The crime lab comes up empty, but a year and a half later an anonymous tip to the Boston PD reveals the woman to be the wayward daughter of a prominent Irish American political family.
In a separate case, more than thirty years earlier, a pregnant woman's corpse had been discovered on the Irish island of Inishmore. A group of women secretly buried the body but saved a lock of the dead girl's hair, which is just now passed along to Poppy. She agrees to set up a DNA test, which soon confirms her gut feeling that the two drownings are somehow linked-and that foul play is involved.
Teaming up with the inimitable Rocky, Poppy sets out in search of truth and justice and instead finds herself snared in a web of political deceit, family intrigue, and out-and-out bad guys. As always, she rises to the occasion.

When the body of a young, pregnant woman washes ashore on a stretch of barren beach at Boston Harbor, Boston homicide detective Rocky Patel writes to FBI agent Poppy Rice for help in identifying the Jane Doe. But the crime lab comes up empty, and not until a year and a half later does an anonymous tip to the Boston PD reveal the woman to be the wayward daughter of a prominent, Irish-American political family.
Just days before the ID, an Irish-born Boston fire marshal (and old flame) asks Poppy to look into another case. It seems that more than thirty years earlier, a pregnant woman's corpse was discovered on the island of Inishmore. A group of women, led by the fire marshal's mother, secretly buried the body (the church would not have allowed burial in consecrated ground) but saved a lock of the dead girl's hair. The marshal, knowing Poppy is better than he is at cutting through red tape, appeals to her on his mother's behalf. She agrees to set up a DNA test, which soon confirms her gut feeling that the two drownings, while separated by thirty years and an ocean, are somehow linked.
Teaming up with the inimitable Rocky Patel, Poppy sets out in search of truth and justice and instead finds herself ensnared in a web of political deceit, family intrigue, and out-and-out bad guys. As always, she rises to the occasion.
