In this standalone work, Steve Brewer takes a break from his comic Bubba Mabry series. Brewer hasn't lost his sense of humor, but BULLETS has a harder edge than the Mabry books, as well as much more complex plotting and characterization.

The action takes place in Las Vegas where a hit woman named Lily Marsden knocks off a rich businessman by the name of Max Vernon. That wouldn't ordinarily present a problem, but she pulled off the hit in the upscale Tropical Bay casino. The proprietors of that e
From the author of the "Bubba Mabry" series, Brewer's wry humor continues in his first stand alone. With the steaming dry heat of Las Vegas as the backdrop, an ex-cop chasing after a female killer-for-hire, to help him clear his name.

Smartly written mystery centered around a female hit woman. Fans of Elmore Leonard type mysteries would enjoy this one.
