With her searing debut, THE 37TH HOUR, Jodi Compton galvanized readers with a complex heroine and a skillfully constructed mystery. Now, for fans eager to reconnect with the story of Detective Sarah Pribek—and for those discovering her for the first time—SYMPATHY BETWEEN HUMANS is a fast-paced crime thriller from one of today's most original and compelling suspense writers.

Six months after the death of a small-time criminal, Sarah is still protecting the identity of a killer. Surrounded by colleagues who know her to be a murder suspect, Sarah keeps her demons at bay by juggling two very different cases—a young man missing from a deeply troubled family and an unlicensed doctor providing medical care for the underclass. But her most important undertaking of all will be escaping the unblinking eye of a D.A.'s investigator who has come to town determined to make an arrest. And a single misstep could not only end Sarah's career—but one of the lives she has vowed to protect.
