|Series:||Bird Blacker Bounty-Hunter Mystery|
Bountyhunter Ladybird "Bird" Blacker has enough to deal with, what with a partner who is a pacifist, and a business rival who is six feet seven inches tall, and wears a scowl you couldn't scrape off with a chisel. Then her kid sister, Ruby, shows up eager to get in on the fugitive-recovery business, and her latest successful capture turns out to be the son of a powerful crime boss. When the angry father hires an assassin to take out Bird and rescue his son, she turns out to be Bird's ex-girlfriend, and things really get interesting! Full of wry charm, suspense, unforgettable characters, and rich comedy. T.I. Alvarado's debut is reminiscent of both Elmore Leonard and David Sedaris.
