GIRL WITH A GUN is a boxed set collection of all three Stephanie Chalice Back Stories, which feature our savvy gal sleuth in the days before she became a lead detective. She’s righteous, rambunctious, and oh so ready . . . for anything.
In FIRST KILL Chalice accomplishes what women all over the world have always dreamed of: she’s actually gotten younger. A woman is dead, a suspect is in custody, and the case seems ironclad, but all is not as it appears. Chalice soon finds herself embroiled in a deadly game of fraud, conspiracy, and deception. The body count is about to rise and the only thing standing between the murderer and his next victim is a headstrong rookie detective with a sixth sense for solving crime.
In SECOND CHANCE Chalice has taken her first life, a righteous kill in the line of duty. When her CO orders her to take time off, Chalice hops a jet to South Beach with her girl pal Tay for a little R&R but soon finds herself caught up in a homicide investigation. Chalice runs afoul of a merciless Jamaican drug lord named Donovan who hunts her across the Florida Everglades. With no jurisdiction and only her wits to rely upon, will Chalice be able to bring the case to a close before Donovan’s noose tightens around her throat?
In THIRD VICTIM Chalice is funnier, ballsier, and just plain hell-bent for justice. She’s taken her first life, turned a sorely needed vacation into a nightmare, and is once again ready to mess with the wicked. When a bomb goes off in a house of worship, she questions the bomber’s MO and the evidence staring her in the face. Rejecting the obvious conclusion, Chalice leaps headfirst into an investigation with no obvious suspects and clues that stymie NYPD’s best and brightest.
