Outnumbered by their male counterparts, each excels in her chosen field and belongs to an elite crime-fighting force. The Judge: Laura Vaccaro is an anti-mafia judge in Sicily. Undaunted by the murders of her colleagues, she sent Cosa Nostra chief Bernardo Provenzano to prison for life. The Drug Agent: Janel Iskenderian is on the front line of the war on drugs. As a special agent in Fresno, California, she battles the Mexican mafia in America’s methamphetamine capital. The Forensic Scientist: Celine Nicloux is truly on the cutting edge. Working in an elite French police institute, she studies bloodstain patterns as clues and evidence in criminal investigations. The Medical Examiner: Sophie Gromb is chief medical examiner in Bordeaux, France – and a character straight out of a film script. Her job allows her “to comfort families and send the bastards to prison.” The Chief Detective: Judicaële Ruby is head of criminal investigations in France’s second largest city, Lyons. Five months pregnant, she faces a daily dose of murder, violence and armed robbery.
