Synopsis

When famed bounty hunter Ralph "Papa" Thorson is killed by a car bomb, his widow and daughter take over the family business, tracking down wanted felons. Initially they meet with strong resistance among the mostly male denizens of the bail-bond circuit, until they prove themselves more than capable of capturing even the most dangerous of bail-jumpers.

A gritty look at the underbelly of the justice system, as well as the true story of two extraordinary women who have prevailed in a world of men, and who have fought their way to the top of their profession.

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.
