Deuce Mora Mystery Series Vol. 1-3
Deuce Mora’s one tough cookie–-a female sleuth with a conscience and an attitude–fiery, tough, athletic, a dirty fighter when she has to be. The scrappy lead columnist for the Chicago Journal normally writes about politics, and, rather than shying away from fights, she tends to pick them, but every once in a while, Deuce’s search for a good story brings her face to face with more trouble than she was really looking for. In award-winning (including two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist) journalist Jean Heller’s first action-packed mystery featuring the intrepid sleuth, Deuce learns in short order that if you mess with organized crime, you have to be tough—and you’d better be as much detective as reporter.
A child wanders the courthouse hallways alone. She won’t speak. Or, can’t speak. Anna agrees to foster the abandoned girl. But danger lurks in Anna’s past. Just when she thinks that all her striving has finally brought her the life she sought, the past launches itself at her and those she’s come to love. Yet other forces are after the child. With lives and freedom on the line, can Anna shake the bonds on the past, and stand up for those who mean the world to her?
