“When the young man parked his restored Trans-Am in front of our office and walked in, I knew I had a choice. I could either hide behind the do-nothing assignments that my new partner had relegated me to, or I could deal with this guy’s problem. I dealt.”
That brash decision lands Pegasus Quincy in the midst of a hostile murder situation. She alienates her new partner and almost gets him killed. She ignores regulations and jeopardizes an ongoing investigation.
Just when she thinks things couldn’t get worse – they do! She encounters the Nettle family: an insanely jealous wife, a banished son, and a sister whose little girl has been traumatized by an explosion at the illicit family whiskey still. Don’t forget the seven-month pregnant mistress, either. All have good reason to kill the patriarch and nobody’s talking.
