About Jaymie Zarlin
Private Investigator Jaymie Zarlin and her assistant Gabi Gutierrez peel back the luscious skin of a California beach town to expose corruption and murder.
Zarlin, who prefers to work missing-person cases, finds herself pulled in to investigate a series of brutal homicides. As she struggles to help the most vulnerable, each case brings her a step closer to uncovering the truth about her own brother, who died years earlier in police custody. Through it all, Zarlin navigates sharp divides marked by race, money, gender and privilege in her seaside town.
“If a story is not about the hearer [s]he will not listen. And here I make a rule—a great and interesting story is about everyone or it will not last.”
