The Lost Witness by Robert Ellis. In this sequel to City of Fire, police detective Lena Gamble is assigned her first real murder case in months. Lena is still held in disgrace by her Los Angeles police department bosses for the explosive way the Romeo case played out, though she is hailed as a hero by her colleagues for catching the killer. Lena is thrilled at first to be working on a new murder case until she gets a look at the scene. The victim is unidentified, and there are no witnesses and no leads. Just the body, chopped into pieces and dropped in a dumpster, gruesome enough to ensure that once again the media will be following Lena's every move. Are her department superiors setting her up to fail so that they can get rid of her for good? Will she find the murderer before she becomes his next victim? Be careful what you ask for!
