Hightower started her writing career by writing a series of futuristic police procedurals. She has written series of books which feature the Cincinnati homicide detective Somora Blair. Introduced in Flashpoint, Somara and her college, Sam Delarosa, are faced with a series of extremely grisly killings in which men have been burnt alive. Eyeshot follows the police duo as they attempt to solve an eight-year-old murder. In No Good Deed the disappearance of a girl and her horse is at the centre of an investigation. Apart from Delarosa, the other recurring characters are the two children - a young daughter and a teenaged son - of single mother Sonorr.
