Synopsis

A Thrilling Introduction to the Grace deHaviland Bounty Hunter Series
Five Edge-Of-Your-Seat Short Stories by Crime Writer David DeLee

FIRST IMPRESSIONS
When you're a bounty hunter, making snap judgments about people will often save your life. But what if those first impressions are wrong? When Grace deHaviland chases a bail jumper to the White Mountains of New Hampshire, a long way from her home turf of Columbus, Ohio, she may discover the answer--with deadly consequences.

FUTILE EFFORT
Expect the unexpected is a mantra bounty hunter Grace deHaviland has lived by for many years, but when she's tasked with tracking down a young bail jumper for a relatively minor assault charge, even she couldn't anticipate the trouble she and her friend, sheriff's deputy Suzie Jensen, get into.

KICKIN' IT SOUTH OF THE BORDER
 Tracking a U.S. bail jumper across the border into Mexico is illegal. But when bounty hunter Grace deHaviland and sheriff's deputy Suzie Jensen do just that, facing charges isn't their biggest problem: Getting back alive is.

FATAL TRYST
Bounty hunter, Grace deHaviland and her best friend, sheriff's deputy, Suzie Jensen have often worked together, but when the bail jumper they're after is a school teacher charged with sex crimes, the issues they struggle with, and the secrets they uncover, are both startling, disturbing, and strike too close to home.

FAMILY MATTERS
Family is very important to some people, as bounty hunter Grace deHaviland and sheriff's deputy Suzie Jensen find out when a simple assault turns into a murder charge, and tracking down the bail jumper responsible raises troubling issues of illegal immigration, racism and family loyalty.
