Overview

In her final case, amateur sleuth Allie Cobb has to track down a vengeful killer from the past before they wreck her future . . .

With her wedding just around the corner, Kickboxing Crusader Allie Cobb decides it's time to hang up her sleuthing cap for good. But when an affable local cop on the verge of retirement is shot dead at the town's Fourth of July picnic, Allie can't help but reconsider her decision. And with everyone at the festivities a potential witness, the police have their hands full and are more than happy to accept Allie's help.

Certain that the murder has its roots in one of the policeman's old arrests, Allie begins digging into his past and discovers a surprising history of clashes with regional drug dealers and a local gambling ring. But then her investigation unearths a more alarming possibility that hits much closer to home, and Allie will have to bend a few rules to break the case and bring down a killer . . .
