Baby Shark’s JUGGLERS AT THE BORDER (Baby Shark series book #4) by Robert Fate
Publishers Weekly - Starred Review
Booklist – Starred Review

It is October 1958 when Otis Millett’s estranged wife, Dixie Logan aka the stripper known as The Dallas Firecracker, is murdered. Her death spurs a manhunt that pairs Kristin and Otis with Lt. Carl Lynch, a straight-arrow homicide detective with the Fort Worth PD. It seems some bank heist loot has disappeared and the deceased stripper Dixie Logan looks to have been involved.

This uneasy partnership of a by-the-book police detective and a couple of fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants private investigators ends up putting Kristin next to a cop-killing gang of bank robbers and their heartless boss, a dreamy maniac who lives with his mother and hears voices. The question that puts her life in danger and leads to a chase from Fort Worth to New Mexico is where did Dixie hide the bank heist loot?

More heart-stopping action from Baby Shark!

Editorial Reviews

With her pool-hustling career gathering dust like the parched Texas border towns where she was raised, Baby Shark, aka Kristin Van Dijk, is now a full-time private eye. Fate fills his novels with verisimilitude; we smell the unfiltered smokes while jukeboxes play old songs that somehow feel brand new. With book four in this gritty series, Fate again jacks pulp fiction up a notch or three beyond the old Black Mask formulas. Hard-boiled just doesn’t get much better than Baby Shark spinning
Starred review
Jugglers at the Border is Fate's masterful fourth 1950s PI novel starring Kristin Van Dijk as Baby Shark, a hard-as-nails heroine who's completely credible. The pages will speed by for readers who enjoy gritty crime tales with plenty of flying bullets.
