What happens when a celebrity author whose plots are “ripped from the headlines” gets involved in a murder investigation? Gina and the SFPD are about to find out.

She’s 5’2″, gamine, and weighs ninety-four pounds in a soggy trench coat. The nickname “Tinkerbell” has followed her from high school. It’s hard to imagine her riding a Harley or packing a baby blue .357 Magnum. She does both.

When a local businessman is murdered on the eve of his company’s IPO, Gina is invited to consult on the case. Coming from Detective Chief Ramon Mirande, that invitation remarkable enough. But then a celebrity author whose plots are “ripped from the headlines” turns up to shadow the investigation. Mirande can’t tell her to take a hike—she’s a friend of the DA—but he can assign Gina to babysit her. What happens then turns their investigation on its head.


“A tough, sassy, and relatable investigator, Gina drives a Harley, packs a baby blue Magnum, and is trained in the martial arts. Her rich backstory and family life adds unusual depth to a fun story. Readers will want to see a lot more of Gina.”
