Life can change in just an instant. That's the harsh reality that Jenny Jasik faces when her son is killed in an automobile accident, but never in her wildest dreams did she ever expect to be working undercover as a member of a drug task force. She is, after all, just a mom. But don’t discount what a mom can do when the safety of her children is at stake. ADVANCE PRAISE "With heart and soul and plenty of suspense, One Small Victory careens toward an outcome that could end in disaster— but could also be one small victory." Margaret Marr “One Small Victory is great Romantic Suspense and a read you won't want to miss.” Victoria Kennedy, Midwest Book Reviews “One Small Victory is not for the faint of heart, but it is an excellent, well-crafted novel. The tension is all pervasive, and heat, rage, sorrow, despair, and all-enveloping terror fill every page.” Carolyn Crisher “One Small Victory is an amazing, heart pounding, emotional tale about one mother's love of her children, and the steps she takes to protect them from harm.” Jennifer Lawrence for Amazon.com **** FOUR STARS "A compelling read of a grieving mother's crusade to rid the streets of her home town of drugs, and those who lure our children into addiction." Laura Castoro, author of Icing on the Cake & Love on the Line “One Small Victory is one huge win for author Maryann Miller and her readers ” Paula Stallings Yost, Editor/Author. “One Small Victory is a riveting journey through fear, love, and a woman's determination to make things better.” Slim Randles, author.

From the Author:

This book was inspired by a true story that I read in a newspaper article. It was a very brief article about a woman who risked a lot to infiltrate a drug ring and bring down a major distributor. She was "just a mom" with several children and no background in law-enforcement; and she did this following the death of her oldest son. Wow! What a courageous woman. After I read the news article, the character of Jenny came to me almost fully-developed, and she drove the story from beginning to end.

I did a tremendous amount of research to find out how a civilian would work with a drug task force in a rural area of Texas, and I am grateful to all the professionals who shared their expertise with me.

The book was originally published in hardback.

From the Inside Flap:

Excerpt from Chapter One

Life can change in just an instant.

That thought wove its way in and around her mind as Jenny fingered the clothes jammed along the wooden rod in the closet. His funny T-shirts promoting the likes of "Prince" and "Dilbert." His one good shirt, only worn under duress. His leather jacket that still carried a faint aroma reminiscent of saddles and horses.

Sometime soon she'd have to clean out the closet. Isn't that what usually happens?
Tears burned her eyes and she turned away. She didn't know what was supposed to happen. No one had ever told her. And a multitude of questions swam through her mind like restless minnows in a pond.

There were books on choosing a college. Books on how to plan a wedding or how to help your child find a job. But no one had ever written one on what to do when your son dies.
In that moment of truth, the weight of the pain overcame her. It was like being smothered under a huge quilt. Gasping for breath in between sobs, Jenny ran from the room, slamming the door.
