Chilling Effect by Melissa F. Miller
The first in this series featuring Aroostine Higgins is Critical Vulnerability, but I haven't read it. Aroostine, a native American, is an assistant U.S. Attorney, who has made appearances in another series by Miller. Chilling Effect is the second book in which Aroostine is the protagonist.
Aroostine and her husband Joe are supposed to be on a romantic get-away, but her boss calls and wants her to interview a witness about an embezzlement scheme at an Indian casino. When Aroostine arrives at the informant's home, she finds him murdered.
I'm afraid this is one of the books that I found just OK; neither characters nor plot intrigued me, but neither did I feel the urge to add it to the DNF pile.
