"The most refreshing, creative female character to hit mystery fiction since Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone" is back—in four more fast-paced crime thrillers (People). Six-foot-tall, redheaded ex-cop and Boston-based private eye Carlotta Carlyle is "the genuine article: a straightforward, funny, thoroughly American mystery heroine" (New York Post). Snapshot: A series of strange photos draws Carlotta into a chilling case of medical malpractice. "Snapshot is destined to secure Barnes' position in the hotshot ranks of detective fiction." —Arizona Republic Hardware: After a series of assaults on cabbies, Carlotta's moonlighting job as a taxi driver turns into the most dangerous, high-octane case of her career. "Ms. Barnes makes a fist and puts some muscle in this strong plot about an extortionist scheme to corner the market in the taxi medallions." —The New York Times Book Review Cold Case: Hired to find a long-missing novelist, Carlotta gets tangled up in a cutthroat political campaign. "With a stylish pro like Barnes doing the plotting, this chilling case won't leave you cold." —People Flashpoint: Carlotta tries not to get scorched when an arsonist targets her. "[Flashpoint] further cement[s] [Carlotta's] place in the pantheon of contemporary P.I.s." —Chicago Tribune
