Look out Sue Grafton & Kinsey Millhone, there's a new gun in town & her heroines are playing for keeps!

Gwen Michaels gets rough and tough when she sees no alternative. A full-length novel with Gwen's unique solutions would be very entertaining. Love author, S.L. Pierce's, style of writing. She has an uncanny ability to capture the readers' attention from beginning to end. I look forward to reading all that she has written. Rebecca Scarberry.
