After a major setback, Jinx Ballou is determined to prove she’s still one of the best bounty hunters in Phoenix, Arizona. To do that, she must track down Holly Schwartz, a teenage murder suspect. Should be easy, right?
But Holly’s been missing for weeks and other bounty hunters have already failed to locate her. Can Jinx track her down before time runs out?
Following a series of leads, Jinx uncovers a horrific truth, leading her to question whether Holly is really a vicious murderer or another victim in a much larger case. Just when Jinx thinks she’s found her young fugitive, the investigation puts her in the crosshairs of a ruthless gangster.
To survive long enough to return Holly to custody, Jinx must push her skills, her body, and her luck to the limit.
Fans of Stieg Larsson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Michael Connelly’s Harry Bosch series will love this gritty, fast-paced thriller. Its refreshingly unique characters and non-stop, heart-pounding action make it impossible to put down.
