June 1951... It’s a tense summer in the City
of Angels ....
A killer is on the loose. She’s blonde, she’s gorgeous, and
she murders bad guys. On three different nights, she
thwarted a mugging in progress, saving the innocent,
dispatching the guilty, and fading away like a whisper in
the rain. She never waits around for thanks. Apparently,
she doesn’t want any.
Who is this woman?
Jack Curran is determined to find out. He’s a WWII hero
and the journalist who stuck the tabloid name ‘Thrill Girl’
on her. When she strikes a fourth time, adding two more
to her body count while saving a pretty shop girl, his
investigation leads him to socialite Alana Maxwell. She’s
blonde. She’s gorgeous.
Does she murder bad guys?
In his reporting, he unearths secret motives, untrustworthy
relationships and a monstrous and immoral villain far
worse than he suspected. Will Jack uncover the truth in
time, or will the identity and circumstances behind Thrill
Girl’s murder spree be forever lost, along with the lives
of everyone involved?
Jack Curran is the pseudonym of an author writing for over twenty-five years in other genres. This is his first mystery. Jack loves all things California or Italy, feline or dog, and the kindness of strangers. His favorite vice is his friend Elaine’s whiskey sours — rocks, not blended.
Jack knows books belong to readers once the author types
‘The End’. He hopes you will leave your thoughts on reading
Thrill Girl at the retailer where you purchased your book,
and at Goodreads. Thank you.
