Overview

Detective Sergeant Margaret "Magnum" Schultz has been a cop with the Porterville Police Department for ten years. The old adage "a woman has to work twice as hard as a man to get half the credit" may apply, not only because Schultz tops out at five-four but because not all the men she works with think she should be there.

Overview

Detective Sergeant Margaret "Magnum" Schultz has been a cop with the Porterville Police Department for ten years. The old adage "a woman has to work twice as hard as a man to get half the credit" may apply, not only because Schultz tops out at five-four but because not all the men she works with think she should be there.
A hooker is found strangled behind a local tavern. Magnum goes after the killer. She chases a Dodge Ram out into a muddy field in her Ford Crown Vic. She gets surprised in her own garage by a serial killer, whose last victim was hacked to pieces and fed to pigs. The knock-down-drag out that ensues speaks well of the Model Mugging techniques she uses to survive. Her primary concerns are the safety of her 13 year old daughter and getting the job done well.

Meet the Author

I was raised til age 15 on a farm in Central Idaho. My dad was a Czech immigrant and my mom was an Oklahoma City business woman. I graduated from Gonzaga University in 1968 with a B.A. in English.In the days before women routinely became street cops, I'd read a book about a woman who did that and decided that was what I had to do. Beginning in 1981 I worked for 21 years as a small town police officer in Eastern Washington State.In 2002 I hung up my gun belt and went back to school for a BA in Education so I could teach Criminal Justice in a Spokane High School. After three years of that, I decided that the public school system and I were not going to see eye-to-eye, so hung up my lazer-pointer and turned my attention to the martial arts school I'd established in 1998.I'd studied marial arts since 1974 and, over the course of 34 years, earned a 4th degree black belt in Goju-ryu Karate. But I'd also, with my husband, team-taught women's self-defense based on the "Model Mugging" system.Since I'd first been able to put words to paper, I'd aspired to be a writer. So, here I am.

    Would hive a four and a half if it did not have so many f#&k yous in it.

    This was a really good book. It was action filled, about 430 pages long and had a strong heroine. It was also rather gory, very violent, not very well edited and filled with an over abundance of curse words. I bet it would have been thirty pages shorter, just by leaving out all the f#@k yous, which seemed to occur on every page. There were other curse words as well, but that one was extremely over used. Whodunit was a bit of a puzzler. I was not sure who the killer was until I was about two thirds of the way through the book. There was no sex, no preaching and no sentiment in this book. I will read another book by this author, but if the langauge is this bad in it, I will not read a third. I do not need this type of brain pollution. Recommended for adult readers, male or female, who enjoy a suspenseful mystery, do not mind filthy langauge and have strong stomachs.
