Framed (Black Swann Investigations #1) by Wayne A.D. Kerr

Toronto’s newest homicide detective, Reggie Swann, seemed to have it all: great career, handsome husband and plans to start a family, until she was framed for murder…

A cop has very few friends in prison. After surviving ten brutal years behind bars, Reggie’s conviction is finally overturned thanks to her tenacious mother, a new forensic test and a very clever lawyer. She quickly discovers that getting her old life back won’t be as easy as she hoped. To many, she was still as the media had dubbed her: ‘Black Swann – murderer and cop-gone-bad’. The Toronto Police Department still considers her to be a suspect, Reggie’s husband has remarried and the real killer is still on the loose.

Before Reggie can return to Toronto and solve the crime that ruined her life, she reluctantly agrees to investigate a murder in her home town of Penticton, only to discover the two cases which are separated by ten years and five provinces might somehow be connected. Will anyone believe the wild theories of the disgraced detective?

The real murderer does! 

He framed her once, this time Reggie Swann must die!

My review:
Framed takes you into the heart and mind of wrongly convicted homicide detective Reggie Swann. She has been in prison for ten long years when her lawyer has her case overturned and she is released. But overturned isn’t proven innocent and now Reggie is living with her mother trying to wrap her mind around freedom. She’d really like to find the jackhole who framed her but first she is asked by the lawyer who got her freed for a favor. Can she help a hometown lawyer prove her client is innocent. She is used to being on the other side of the equation but an investigation is something she is very good at.  
Despite some unfortunate pacing issues I really liked Reggie and enjoyed this story. I look forward to future Black Swann Investigations.
