Set against a backdrop of racial tension and deadly force controversy in Dallas, Open Season introduces Sarah Kingsly and Angel Johnson, homicide detectives who are unlikely and unwilling partners. When people start dying in area shopping malls, the detectives find themselves up against a killer who has his own race card to play.

This is the first book in the critically-acclaimed Seasons Mystery Series, followed by Stalking Season.

"Try this debut mystery by a journalist for its open treatment of current urban problems, clean prose, and realistic depiction of women working together. For readers who enjoy Robin Burcell and fans of police procedurals." Library Journal

"Open Season is a solid police procedural with fully developed characters and provocative social issues." L.J. Sellers, author of the Detective Jackson Mysteries

"Detectives Sarah Kingsly and Angel Johnson are crisply drawn characters. The hard-edged story of racial tension in Dallas could be drawn from today's headlines. Open Season is a smart, spirited page-turner." -Bruce Cook - Tommy Gun Tango

"Miller spins a tight tale that's a cut above the average police procedural in this first of a new series introducing Dallas police detective Sarah Kingsly." Publisher's Weekly
