Overview

Wisecracking reporter Dixie Flynn thinks fast and talks even faster—it’s the only way to survive the San Francisco crime beat. When she’s assigned to look into the death of her former lover, artist Diego Chino, Dixie’s instincts tell her there’s more behind the apparent suicide than the police are letting on.

Dixie’s canvassing of the Bay Area art district reveals it to be a perfect picture of corruption, with a handsome art dealer and a reclusive patron in the foreground. After a romantic evening in Chinatown ends in a brush with death, Dixie is more determined than ever to expose the truth. But when a fire in her vicinity turns out to be more than just performance art, it’s clear the perpetrators would rather see Dixie dead than let her destroy their criminal masterpiece.

Praise:
“A terrific novelist!” —Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of The Silent Girl

“Grant McKenzie (aka M. C. Grant) really knows how to make a story move.”—Linwood Barclay, international bestselling author of No Time for Goodbye

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
A tough San Francisco reporter investigates the death of a former lover. Dixie Flynn is on the scene shortly after the death of artist Diego Chino. A carefully arranged signed canvas that uses his blood and other body materials to depict rage and despair paints a lurid portrait of a suicide. In the fickle world of art, Diego had been a hot seller, but lately he had been overtaken by an artist known as Adamsky. Although Dixie suspects murder, her father-figure friend DS Frank Fury isn't persuaded, and the case is quickly shut down by the highest reaches of the police department. Meanwhile, a man representing the wealthy collector Sir Roger Kingston shows up before the blood has dried on the canvas, claiming Chino had texted him with instructions on where and when to find Chino's posthumous work. Even after the investigation is closed, Dixie, still certain that Chino was murdered, takes the fact that she is harassed and almost run over in a Chinatown alley as confirmation of her suspicions. Can she find the truth before she's killed by whoever is determined to keep the case closed? Under a sort-of-pseudonym, thriller writer Grant McKenzie (No Cry For Help, 2010, etc.) offers the first of a planned series featuring wisecracking Dixie, with a fast-paced combination of violence and sex and a game-changing twist at the end.

    Breezy and fun.

    Dixie Flynn, a SF reporter, is on the case of missing art, an apparent suicide turned murder,
    and a scathing, threatening note to one of her neighbors. Well written and witty, "Angel with a Bullet"
    is a smart fast-paced story for fans of mystery. I look forward to Grant's next Dixie Flynn outing.

    Loved it! Janet Evanovich meets John Sandford with a touch of Gregory Mcdonald and Raymond Chandler thrown in for good measure. Fun and exciting read. And I fell in love with Dixie - she's my kind of broad.
