I don't get it, Henry. A man would have to have lived ten lives to have picked up what you have.
— Jo to Henry
in "The King of Columbus Circle"

Jo Martinez is a main character and a detective with the New York Police Department.[1]


Detective Jo Martinez is a New York City native and one of the youngest officers of the New York Police Department to make homicide detective. She has been working as police officer for at least ten years.[2] Jo's sharp, no-nonsense instincts and her ability to close difficult cases have given her a tough-as-nails reputation on the force, despite also dealing with the untimely loss of her husband.

Working with Dr. Henry Morgan was initially a challenge for Jo, but over time the investigator has come to appreciate Henry's annoyingly "creative approach" to solving homicides. Combined with Jo's quick-fire cop instincts, Henry's deductive talents have not only contributed to a successful partnership, but also to a budding friendship.

In "Dead Men Tell Long Tales", Jo and Isaac Monroe went out on a date.
