Retired Kansas City homicide detective, Jazz Callender is on her last straw.  Her ex partner is serving time for a crime he didn’t commit and she can’t seem to find any proof of his innocence.  To top it off, some of the officers involved in the case seem to still have it out for her.  So what does any girl do when life throws her in the gutter?  Drink of course.  And that is what she intended to do until her plans got disrupted.

When Jazz is given a mysterious red envelope with a promising arrangement by a sexy lawyer in disguise her world seems to go from zero to sixty in no time.  Gone are the days where drinking away her sorrows was the only thing on her mind.  Now she finds herself sent out on P.I. missions by the mysterious red letters and even has a new partner, ex FBI agent Lucia Garza.  But as time goes on Jazz and Lucia realize that this little arrangement seems too good to be true and they want more information from their mysterious red letter sender.  But the truth isn’t what it’s all cut out to be and the more they learn, the more danger Jazz finds herself in. 

Now, here are two Bad Ass chicks to put on the roster my friends!  Jazz Callender and Lucia Garza!  Jazz has a rough edge and she takes no bullsh*t. Period.  Her mouth has no filter and her fist can knock you into next Tuesday.  Lucia, well she is what I like to call a sleeper.  You will never think that a polished looking woman can shoot you dead in two seconds flat.  Not to mention her resume is impressive.  With Jazz’s sass, Lucia’s class and the refreshing way they get along, it’s not hard to see that these two are a powerhouse partnership that will go far!  

Devil’s Bargain is filled with murder, mystery, bad ass chicks and a good ole kick in the head twist that will make you feel totally off kilter!  Just go with it, trust me.  As for now, I can’t wait to see what these girls have in store next!
