SHE SWORE SHE’D NEVER GO BACK—BUT ORANGE IS HER NEW BLACK—“DON’T MISS HER!” –JANET EVANOVICH This has to be said right up front: BAD MOON ON THE RISE features the all-time best ever laugh-out-loud prison break! Seriously, if anybody else tried this, they’d end up on America’s Dumbest Criminals, for sure. But with author Katy Munger’s trademark blend of nail-biting suspense and hilarity, Casey Jones gets her man, as always – and, as always, he’s the hottest guy in the bar. In this rip-roaring romp of a mystery, big, badass smart-mouthed Casey, the hard-boiled female PI with the thunder thighs and the bunny-soft heart, suddenly finds herself out of her familiar Durham hood and following a trail to a North Carolina prison town. She’s looking for a basketball star who’s spent his young life taking care of his drug-addicted mother, and now they’ve both dropped off the radar. Armed with a suitcase full of Little Debbie cakes to tide him over, her rotund semi-boss, private investigator Bobby D, accompanies her up the mountain to provide back-up for her – and entertainment for the reader. Under assumed names – Bobby assigns Casey the identity of “Debbie Little” – they set up headquarters in a floral-frumped Victorian B&B whose patrons are scandalized by Casey’s walk of shame after a historically rowdy night with the handsome stranger she met in the local bar – who turns out to be the sheriff!Casey’s new squeeze is disturbed by suspicious goings-on in the prison, where the boy’s mom once served time, and offers to help Casey get inside to get information on her in exchange for whatever she can learn about his investigation. And just like that, Casey decides not to be controlled by her past – a past that includes eighteen months in a Florida prison when she took rap for her drug dealer husband. She decides to place her trust in the good mountain man who’s asked for her help and to do the hardest thing she can imagine: agree to be locked up for a week inside a prison once again. Can this be our Casey? The one who’s done being dumb about men? Before it’s all over, she will learn a few lessons about who her true friends are, settle several old scores, lay some fears to rest, and give up the shameful secret she’s never shared with any man: her prison record. What could this mean? Has she finally found a man she can trust, or is she just finally backed into a corner that the usual lies of omission can’t cover?BAD MOON ON THE RISE will delight fans of female sleuth mysteries—especially private eyes like Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Millhone, Sara Paretsky’s V.I. Warshawski, Laura Lippman’s Tess Monaghan, Marcia Muller’s Sharon McCone, and Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum, as well as their tough and witty male antecedents, Philip Marlowe, Spenser, and, of course, the immortal Nero Wolfe and his buddy Archie, to whom Bobby D. and Casey bear more than a passing resemblance. PRAISE FOR CASEY JONES:“Casey Jones joins the ranks of smart and gutsy heroines. The South will never be the same. Don’t miss her.” –Janet Evanovich– “Fast-paced and action-packed…The charm here lies in Munger’s writing, which is silky-smooth and packs a wallop.”–I Love a Mystery“She is smart, tough, and tenacious… a wonderfully entertaining read”.– Publisher’s Weekly
