Description

Dixie Flynn’s boss wants her to write a fluff story for Father’s Day.

Dixie doesn’t do fluff.

Investigating the origins of a cryptic classified ad, crime-beat journalist Dixie Flynn finds herself entering the seedy realm of a brutal Russian mobster. Before she knows it, Dixie’s simple missing-father story has turned into a violent battle of wills as she tries to help a woman escape a life and death struggle with the mob. For Dixie, the pen is mightier than the sword, but it’s going to take some handy work with a pistol if she wants this story to have a happy ending.   

The riveting sequel to ANGEL WITH A BULLET, “a fast-paced combination of violence and sex” (Kirkus Reviews), DEVIL WITH A GUN leads Dixie Flynn to an incendiary confrontation with the most ruthless killers in San Francisco.

"Action, violence, wall-to-wall sleaze—it's all in a day's work in ballsy Dixie's second outing...hard to put down."—Kirkus Reviews

"Chilling."—Publishers Weekly

"Dixie Flynn may be the most kick-ass heroine ever created. Kudos to M.C. Grant for giving us the ultimate 'girl power' thriller."—Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of The Silent Girl 

"This new tale offers a fun, ferocious, take-no-prisoners reporter who will not be stopped. A great suspense/thriller "—Suspense Magazine
