Cold But Not Forgotten – the story of a murder so cold it makes your teeth hurt.

A cold-blooded murder is committed in sleepy little Elko Nevada, an isolated town in the Great American Desert. The facts seem clear to the cop who discovered the body, but the evidence of a murder is apparently non-existent. The wife of prominent and successful local dentist died, apparently while jogging in a county park. This park was just outside Elko’s city limits – and therefore, just a few yards outside the jurisdiction of the chief detective in Elko city’s police force.

Ruled death by natural causes by the medical examiner, who did not do an autopsy on the still-young woman, her body is buried without a lot of fanfare. Later that same day, the dentist sells his home and his practice, buys his office manager a brand-new Cadillac, and relocates his practice (and his office manager) to Sin City, Las Vegas

Cold But Not Forgotten, published by The Wild Rose Press, is RJ Waters’ first book to see print – but don’t worry, fans, a sequel (or, more accurately, a prequel), Gone But Not Forgotten is in final draft form as of publication day for Cold.  Written as only a long-service police officer could do it, this small-town police procedural mystery is compelling and taut.  Much like its author.  Bob Waters was, for fifteen years, a sworn police officer in California, before relocating to Nevada.  (read more)
