Lights Out: A Kira Brightwell Short Story

Series: Kira Brightwell


A crowded mall, the week before Christmas. Definitely not Kira Brightwell’s idea of a good time.

After a long year of difficult—and often dangerous—cases, the bustle and noise jangle her nerves. She resists the temptation to lash out at shoppers who bump into her with their purchases. Not worth the effort. Especially compared to the criminals she usually deals with.

But Kira can find trouble anywhere.

…And a new case waits to be unwrapped.

A stand-alone holiday story from the Kira Brightwell crime fiction series by award-winning author, Jacquelyn Smith. If you love a fun mystery with a kick-ass heroine, grab this book.
