Bounty hunter Dixie Flannigan is well acquainted with the difference between law and justice. But not even she can believe a sleaze like Lawrence Riley Coombs, on trial for a sadistic rape, will walk--especially after jumping bail and attacking her when she went to bring him in. But a jury sets him free, and before Dixie can even stifle her outrage, she learns that a vigilante group has abducted Coombs and given him a brutal taste of his own medicine.
Dixie can't help wondering if the attack involved her friend Assistant DA Brenda Benson, threatened by Coombs as he strolled out of the courtroom. And when Dixie can't help wondering, Dixie can't help investigating. As the vigilantes strike again, she learns that these outlaw avengers risk spinning out of control--and at least one of them will go to any length to protect their mission. And worse--Dixie doesn't know there's someone else targeting her: someone who likes his revenge slow and painful....
Chris Rogers lives in Houston, Texas, where she is at work on the third Dixie Flannigan novel, Chill Factor.
"Chilling...suspenseful...boasts a diabolical plot and a protagonist certain to appeal to fans of female hard-boiled heroes."
"An action-packed, sharply plotted story."
--Sun-Sentinel, Fort Lauderdale
"The climactic showdown scene...is a knockout."
