With six overachieving athletic brothers and a few snowboarding medals of her own, Hale understands the concept of competition. That’s why when she sets her sights on the most brutal competition of all—professional athlete management—she has every intention of succeeding at it.
But her aspirations suffer a setback when she finds her first client dead in the hot tub of his high-rise condo, and her prospective second client at the top of the suspect list.
Determined to keep her shot at super agent stardom alive, Hale makes a play to find the real killer, and finds no shortage of people who wanted to see the rookie bad boy dead.
Including Hale's brother, the golden boy quarterback of the Denver Broncos.
Pitted against the press, her own doubts, a couple of nasty tough guys working for a less-than-ethical doctor, and the advances of her superstar ex-lover, Hale shifts from offense to defense maneuvering to keep her brother out of jail and on the gridiron.
With the clock winding down, Hale's got to hope that her Hail Mary investigative tactics land her on the six o'clock highlight reel, and not on the breaking news as the killer’s next victim.
Trina Riggle is the author of the Hale Mary mystery series. A transplant from Florida -- via Guam, an aircraft carrier, and San Diego – she lives in Arizona with her husband, the youngest of her three spawn, and the World’s Best Dog. When not slaving away at the salt mines or working on her next novel, she can usually be found on a beach somewhere in a temperate climate with an alcoholic beverage in hand, reggae or Jimmy Buffett on the MP3 player, an e-reader on her lap, and a smile on her face.
