    High Plains Redemption Exciting Addition to Series!

    ¿In a spine-jolting crunch that flattened me against the steering wheel, the Mercury slid under them and their car came down on my hood, leaving my horn blaring and my engine roaring...I spun around in the seat, used both feet to push open the door, moved fast...and started forward with my pistol in my hand.¿ (p. 137) Like Fast-paced? Like strong female PI¿s? Meet.... Baby Shark! I came in on the ¿third act¿ of Baby Shark, in High Plains Redemption, but I¿ll be going back to pick up the first two books...and continue on with this hot series by Robert Fate! Baby Shark reminds me of Geena Davis in my all-time favorite action movie, The Long Kiss Goodnight! If you loved Geena in some of her outrageous acts in that movie, then you¿ll certainly want to meet Baby Shark: She can take it: ¿He grabbed me by my hair and pulled me around so hard I thought my neck would snap. He jammed a hand between my thighs, picked me up by my crotch and the hair of my head, swooped me up shoulder high¿and then I was falling...¿ (p. 130) And she can dish it out: ¿I moved instantly, swinging my hands out as I fell forward, chopping my blades into their necks as if I were striking cymbals. The first cuts were to the bone, but I slashed up and pressed in, doing even more injury as I withdrew, leaving their neck wounds open wide and their heads nearly detached from their bodies.¿ (p. 251) High Plains Redemption takes Kristin Van Dijk, aka Baby Shark and partner, Otis Millett into bootlegging country and two warring mountain clans, as they are hired to find and return Savannah, daughter of one of the clan leaders¿hired, but not by her own family! Baby Shark is as confused as everybody else as they try to determine exactly what is happening and who is leaving the trail of bodies behind as Savannah is located and then lost again. Baby Shark knows only one thing¿she must protect Savannah! No matter what or who gets in the way. Unfortunately, that could actually be her lover, Lee, who happens to be a law officer who expects her to follow all the legal rules that he does in protecting the innocent! It is a constant struggle, for Baby Shark knows, ¿we work on the edge of the law, gets blurry out there were Otis and I deal with things.¿ (p. 198) And Baby Shark just doesn¿t think she can trust Lee... Admit it, readers! This sounds like that exciting novel into which you want to escape this weekend! Well, you¿ll be right! This book is highly recommended for lovers of action thrillers! So, excuse me, now...I¿m going back to start reading: Baby Shark¿first book in what I expect will be Robert Fate¿s fantastic series! You might want to start at the beginning... but, no problem, High Plains Redemption stands alone as a great addition, so wherever you meet her, I think you¿ll thoroughly enjoy Baby Shark!

    Baby Shark's High Plains Redemption

    In Baby Shark¿s High Plains Redemption, Kristin Van Dijk ventures from Texas soil to the Oklahoma High Plains. But she¿s not on vacation. She¿s after a young girl who¿s disappeared. Woe be to the men who¿ve taken her. Kristin is armed with guns and knives and, like a shark with sharp teeth, she knows how to use those deadly weapons. Unlike some characters in books who¿ve been trained to fight and kill, Kristin keeps an eye on her moral compass and is strong on both the outside and the inside. Author Fate has even managed to give her a softer side which allows her to see beyond her job as a hard-nosed and lethal PI. Now, if Fate could only write faster!

    Baby Shark Returns With a Vengeance

    I await each new appearance of Baby Shark with breathless anticipation, and High Plains Redemption doesn't disappoint. Kristin van Dijk returns with a vengeance, a little older, a little more determined, dangerous as always ¿and still a crack nine-ball player. This time, Kristin must not only confront politically-connected gangsters and savage hired guns but also the dark shadow her own history casts within her. Taut and unrelenting, with an edge of cool humor and a foundation of essential humanity, High Plains Redemption is a marvelous new chapter in the Baby Shark story.
