Deuce Mora Mystery Series Vol. 1-4
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 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 .
Aja’s life has been one misfortune after another. She was dropped at birth, scarring her face. Her father left when she was 7. Now, in her adolescence, not only does she have to contend with puberty, but certain people she meets get sick to their stomachs or recoil in pain. Desperate to find answers to her distressing effect on people, she finds them in a most unlikely place, the FBI Academy. There, she discovers that her powers may actually be a gift. A gift that, if harnessed, may help the FBI track down the Peace Sign Killer – a serial rapist and murderer.
