A Texas Multi-Billion Dollar Lure!
Following a tactical raid at an Oklahoma farm, a phone call sends U.S. Deputy Marshal Piper McKay rushing back to the East Texas cattle ranch where she grew up. Her grandmother, Jennie Layton, is near death from a crushed skull. When local authorities claim the cause of the injury was an accident, Piper isn’t convinced.
Who wants Jennie dead and why? Is the reason connected to a dubious contract Piper finds in Jennie’s desk? Piper realizes her grandmother isn’t the only one in danger when she barely escapes a deadly attack. Thrust into the middle of a high-stakes, high-risk shell game, Piper’s become the target. The case takes a bizarre turn when Piper unknowingly crosses paths with a Special Ranger. If he can’t derail her investigation, it could cost him his life.
With millions of dollars on the line, nothing will stop a ring of cold-blooded killers, including the murders of a U.S. Marshal and a Special Ranger.
Teachers claim they do not have favorite students and as an editor, I also try to live by that. Every author I work with has a special place in my heart. But let’s get serious – there are 4 in my world that may have a slightly larger spot in my heart. The ones that when I get the email that the next book is ready for me, I get a little more excited and a happier skip in my step. Anita Dickason is one of those. I fell in love with her stories long before I had the privilege of working with her. I would easily put her books up against any of the big names or New York Times bestsellers.
In this book, Dickason uses all her personal knowledge, and a ton of research to portray U. S. Deputy Marshal Piper McKay as a woman to be respected and impressed with. Set in the heart of Texas with cattle rustling taking on a whole to meaning and advanced to the modern-day, I learned a lot about Special Rangers, the cattle business and even DNA. There are so many agencies working together in Texas that it could have been confusing; however, Dickson takes the reader through the process and makes it crystal clear how they all work and interact. She also uses incredible minor characters to enhance every step of the story. Intrigue, action, and intelligent characters kept my attention focused on every page.
PS – I really enjoyed the character that shares my name!
