hobby turns deadly…
In Baited, it’s been a long, hot, summer for PI Julie Collins. With
her partner Kevin off on assignment, she’s lured into taking a case involving a
missing fisherman. Nothing about the man’s disappearance is as it seems.
Although Julie is no stranger to the dark currents that churn below the surface,
can she count on her friend Jimmer, and her lover Tony Martinez, to keep her
from getting in too deep?
An original Julie Collins novella
Simple, right? Find kid, collect fat fee, and celebrate my superior PI skills with the dangerously sexy MC overlord. Except…Martinez neglected to mention a few crucial details. Like the girl’s father is the foreman on the controversial new Indian casino under construction, and the girl’s mother works at a rival Deadwood gaming hall run by an East Coast crime family.
After bullets start whizzing at me, I’m in Martinez’s face, demanding answers. Turns out plenty of people are determined to stop the casino from opening, including competitors, local ranchers, and a Lakota holy group.
As the violence escalates and the bodies pile up, everything around me begins to tumble like a house of cards. My search for a missing girl puts me on the wrong side of tribal politics and at odds with everyone—Kevin, Martinez, and even my father.
In a fight for my life after I attract the killer’s attention, I realize no place is safe…not even hallowed ground.

Readers Love the Hunt for Jack Reacher Series and Diane Capri:
"I 'stumbled' on this title and was attracted to it as I am a Jack Reacher fan. Loved the story and the author's writing style. Couldn't wait for more so I purchased [Raw Justice] and want more Jennifer Lane - please?! Fatal Distraction is also on my Kindle to read list!"
"I have been a Reacher fan for years and was excited when I heard of Diane Capri's take on 'Finding Reacher'. 'Don't Know Jack' is a good companion to Child's Reacher books and recaptures the flavor of the Reacher mystique. I am waiting anxiously for the next book in the series and the next and the next, and so on."
"All Child fans should give it a try!"
Lee Child gives this series and Diane Capri two thumbs up!
“Full of thrills and tension, but smart and human, too. Kim Otto is a great, great character. I love her.” Lee Child, #1 Worldwide Bestselling author of Jack Reacher novels.
My partner and I witnessed a fatality during a routine surveillance case—a case that took a bizarre turn when we questioned the victim’s wife about the mysterious hole that had caused the accident. The widow admitted that hunters had discovered human remains and rather than alerting the authorities, she and her late husband just…reburied the bones. The out-of-sight –out-of-mind approach is never a smart option, particularly when it’s oh…illegal, and especially now that the bones in the hole have vanished.
Who was buried there? And how long ago?
Local, state and tribal authorities want answers. My overworked former boss at the Bear Butte County Sheriff’s office hires our PI agency to separate facts from speculation. I bury myself in the investigation because it leaves me little time to obsess about the screwed-up situation in my personal life—why Martinez asked me to go undercover in his strip club as a bartender…and why in the hell I agreed.
I never imagined this new case would cause total chaos in my world, creating new enemies, opening old wounds with my father, reviving disputes with my half-brother’s Lakota family, and generating dangerous employee rivalries.
But the information I uncover leads me back to my brother’s unsolved murder…and I finally come face to face with his killer.
