Privileged to Kill

Wesley Crocker seems like a harmless free spirit when Posadas County Undersheriff Bill Gastner gives him a lift down the road and a free dinner. Afterwards, Crocker beds down for the night on the high-school athletic field, and in the morning, 13 year-old Maria Ibarra is found dead under the bleachers a few feet away. Crocker goes straight to jail—his account of the night has enough holes to keep him locked down—but a background check on Maria raises troubling questions about her life…

Privileged to Kill is the fifth Undersherrif Bill Gastner mystery, following  Heartshot, Bitter Recoil, Twice Buried, and Before She Dies.
