Ex-cop Skin Kadash can't believe Ruby Jane Whittaker has left town without a word to him! His Ruby Jane. The light of his life. Owner of a small string of coffee shops.

He realizes he doesn't really know that much about her even where she is from. He puts his cop skills to work and starts at her apartment, hoping to figure out where he should go next.

There he finds a dead man in her claw-foot bathtub! Who the heck is this much older man? Clues send him from Portland, Oregon to California where he confronts Ruby Jane's ex-lover. Now we are treated to the two men driving cross-country, feeling a desperate need to find her.

I can't in good conscience tell you any more of the plot. Don't want to spoil it for you. It's a good one, well-thought out as well as well written. You'll like the characters. They are every day people who are caught up in something for which they didn't bargain.

The impossibly-named Skin has his work cut out for him, trying to find someone who doesn't wish to be found. County Line is a good story. And a good read.
