Summary

Gary Phillips has been published in The Los Angeles Times, The San Francisco Examiner, and Rap Pages magazine.

When masked shooters rob Chainey of seven million bucks, she's got three days to recover the money-or else.

“A fine debut in the hip, hard-boiled tradition.” Booklist
“[The] brilliant debut of Martha Chainey. An ex-Vegas showgirl working as a courier for Mooch Maltazar, Chainey is slick, sharp, and tough.” Kirkus Reviews
