Baby Shark’s HIGH PLAINS REDEMPTION (Baby Shark series book #3) by Robert Fate
Kirkus – Starred Review

In May 1957 Kristin Van Dijk aka Baby Shark and Otis Millett are hired by an Oklahoma bootlegger to deliver a ransom. It seems a mysterious piano-playing redhead, a girlfriend of the bootlegger, has been kidnapped, and it all must stay “under the radar.” It turns out, of course, that the bootlegger has been less than truthful about the situation and Kristin and Otis find themselves involved in more trouble than they bargained for. It is suddenly kill or be killed.

The question becomes: who wants the redhead Savannah Smike so badly they are willing to murder anyone who gets in the way? That mystery drives an all-out struggle between two feuding bootlegging clans that puts Otis in the hospital as it careens across two states, leaving a trail of blood and destruction from the tough side of Fort Worth through the southern Ozarks of Oklahoma to the lonesome high plains of the Texas panhandle.

Editorial Reviews

Edgar finalist, Author
"A hugely entertaining pulp-style masterpiece for today's reader. With bootlegging, billiards, Buicks, and babes, this unique series is blue-ribbon trip down memory lane."
Starred Review
After Otis goes down with bullets in his chest, Baby Shark's outnumbered by a whole mess of murderers. Not that there's ever any real doubt that this smart, tough, endlessly cool platinum blonde will be able to cope. Lover her or hate her, everyone knows Baby Shark is lethal. A lively addition to a highly diverting series.
DorothyL
It is rare but magic when it happens that a writer makes a character so real they get up and walk off the page and into your life forever. It's talent. It's Robert Fate writing Baby Shark.
