Description
"Former prosecutor Dixie Flannigan is fearless when it comes to facing down lowlifes and ball jumpers. But she'd rather wrestle the meanest snake in a Texas bayou than balance her own checkbook. So when, during a stakeout, Dixie learns that a sizable sum of cash is missing from her account, she makes sure her quarry is in cuffs and then heads for her local bank ... only to find herself in the middle of a holdup carried out by a most unlikely robber." "Pointing a .38 at the terrified teller is a middle-aged woman with a pleasant - and familiar - face. And Dixie can only watch in disbelief as Edna Pine, the neighbor she loves like family, makes off with three bags of stolen loot." "Yet the situation becomes even more surreal when Edna leads cops on a high-speed chase that ends in a violent shoot-out. Suddenly Edna is dead, the money has vanished, and the police have dubbed Edna the latest in a string of "granny bandits."" "Now, dogged by guilt at not doing more to stop her, and pressured by Edna's son to uncover the desperate emotions that led the comfortably well-off widow to her terrible end, Dixie sets aside her personal problems to dig for the truth. Soon Dixie is on the trail of a master manipulator who has set in motion a devastating plot. And she's about to discover the ice-cold lesson that a smile is the most chilling weapon of all."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
