Low Down Dirty Vote: Vol 2
Short Story One Bullet. One Vote originally appeared in this anthololgy.
Two years after her mother’s murder, Dr. Kendra Hamilton has returned to the mean streets of Dunhill County to bring the killer to justice– even if it costs Kendra her life. But she doesn’t count on getting distracted by another troubling case– that of a stunning young woman with the mental capacity of a child and the sickly father who cannot care for her. When the man is accused of a heinous crime against his own daughter, Kendra knows only one person can help: the lover she left behind, former homicide detective, Richard T. Marvel.
The poorest section of California’s Dunhill County seems to have a love affair with tragedy, yet lately, more and more unfortunate souls are slipping through the cracks. Though Dr. Kendra Hamilton got herself off the mean streets, her mother, Violet, wasn’t so lucky. She’s the latest fatality on The Pit’s ever-growing roster of shattered lives. And although she knows Violet was living on the edge, Kendra is convinced that her death was no accident.
