“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.
Peg is furious when her own life is threatened. But somehow, she must discover who killed old man Nettle before it is too late!
