Having trained at Cedrick and Betts, a large California real estate office, for a number of years, Dana Kirk has opened her own agency and is ready to give her former bosses a run for their money.

The pressure of running a new business is being compounded by a series of sick letters and frightening phone calls that escalate to vicious threats and attempts at injury.

Detective Mitchell Cross is called in to help Dana get to the bottom of things, but every lead tangles with the previous as the list of suspects and the severity of the attacks continue to grow. To top it off, something about Dana makes Mitch reevaluate what he wants from life.

FAIR GAME is a thrilling tale of twists and turns, but some might find the style choppy and the numerous suspects confusing. (Mar., 448 pp. $5.99)
