Overview

Tai Randolph thinks inheriting a Confederate-themed gun shop is her biggest headache — until she finds a murdered corpse in her brother’s driveway. Even worse, her supposedly respectable brother begins behaving in decidedly non-innocent ways, like fleeing to the Bahamas and leaving her with both a homicide in her lap and the pointed suspicions of the Atlanta PD directed her way. Suddenly, she has to worry about clearing her own name, not just that of her wayward sibling. Complicating her search for answers is Trey Seaver, field agent for Phoenix, an exclusive corporate security firm hired to investigate the crime. Trey is fearless, focused, and — much to Tai’s dismay — utterly impervious to bribes, threats and clever deceptions. Still in recovery from the car accident that left him cognitively and emotionally damaged, Trey has constructed a world of certainty and routine. He has powerful people to answer to, and the last thing he wants is an unpredictable stranger “detecting” on Phoenix turf. Tai’s inquiry leads her from the cold-eyed glamour of Atlanta’s adult entertainment scene to the gilded treachery of Tuxedo Road. Potential suspects abound, including violent stalkers, vengeful sisters, and a paparazzo with a taste for meth. But it takes another murder — and threats to her own life — to make Tai realize that to solve this crime, she has to trust the most dangerous man she’s ever met.

Editorial Reviews

starred review - Publishers Weekly
"Set in Atlanta, Whittle's tight, suspenseful debut introduces...wisecracking characters that aren't trite and a twisting plot that isn't tired."
starred review - Kirkus Reviews
"Tai's next adventure can't come soon enough. She's adorable, Trey is worthy of her and Whittle's first foray into crime fiction is noteworthy." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Every once in a while you read a book and wonder how in the world you hadn't read anything by this author before. The Dangerous Edge of Things was that kind of book for me. Tina Whittle has a smart, sassy voice that fills the page with vivid descriptions, a hot Atlanta setting, and a cast of characters that will keep you turning pages. By pairing her reluctant heroine with a brain-damaged partner, she's created a combo that makes you want to read the next book. Tai Randolph inherited a gun shop, but she discovers a dead body, and things escalate from there. Trey Seaver was injured in an accident, and although he's a to-die-for hunk of a guy, his brain doesn't work the way it used to, which frustrates him—and Tai. I was given a copy of the book with a request for an honest review.

This was a fun read. Loved the characters, especially Rico and Trey. And I don't think Tai Randolph is anything like Stephanie Plum--she's smarter.
