Kira Brightwell never planned to become a hero. But her abduction–and daring escape–change everything.

Now, she uses her wits and recently acquired MMA skills to solve local cases as a problem solver for hire. She also continues her quest to track down her abductor–a man known only as the Procurer.

Wherever Kira’s cases lead, she always seems to bring two things with her: an obsession with Nine Inch Nails, and a talent for trouble.

Follow her exploits in this ongoing mystery series of novels, shorts, and collections by award-winning author, Jacquelyn Smith. (Earlier titles in the series originally published under the pen name Kat Irwin.)
