SHOOT THE WOMAN FIRST
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Suspense
Professional thief and stone-cold killer Crissa Stone is back, lining up another caper in burned-out Detroit. Her long-buried conscience leads her further into danger and, perhaps, the end of it all. Violence permeates the action-filled pages replete with fascinating characters in this excellent novel.
The plan is to steal more than half-a-million in Mexican drug money, helped by an insider, another friend and Crissa’s partner, Larry. Although they organize to the nth degree, it all goes terribly wrong when it becomes clear that the informant has turned on them. Ex-cop Burke has always played fast and loose with the law, taking and giving bribes and worse. Now that he’s an independent investigator, he alternates between doing impossible jobs and hitting the bottle. When an old contact asks him to track down the thieves that ripped him off, he says he’ll do it — for a price. When he discovers one of the perps is a woman, it puts him on Crissa’s trail. (MINOTAUR, Dec., 288 pp., $24.99)
