Tightrope on Fire

9780615819839: Tightrope on Fire

Corrupt female sheriff’s detective, Frankie Powers, is treading water in her small desert hometown of Sweet Home, California. Burned-out and emotionally numb after losing her husband and child in a mysterious fire ten years before, her conscience is reawakened when her affair with a Bakersfield narc brings new facts to light. Frankie’s mob boss uncle, Jack Richman, has been kidnapping underage girls for his Vegas prostitution syndicate; he’s also been victimizing his own teen daughters, Frankie’s twin bad girl cousins, Valerie and Vanessa. Soon Frankie finds herself singlehandedly fighting tooth-and-nail against not only wicked uncle Jack but also his dominatrix wife, Marilyn and their degenerate hitman, Cal Nero. Can a lone she wolf survive against the bloodthirsty pack? "Chris D. has staked his claim on the modern Southwestern noir territory, a big, sun-scorched claim. Frankie Powers is a brutal anti-anti-heroine whose code of honor arrives too late with too little." – Craig Clevenger, author of Dermaphoria and The Contortionist's Handbook
