Where to Choose

Book 2

"The same dynamite combination of sexual energy and unbridled aggression that distinguished One Must Wait from the rest of the female legal-eagle horde gives her second adventure an equally impressive charge."
   —Dick Adler

After Carole Ann walked away from her law practice, she thought she was through dealing with the violent class. But when she learns that her mother's best friend has been attacked in the old neighborhood, she gets on the next plane home—and finds that the place where she grew up is in trouble and that the police don't care. Carole Ann decides that this time she's going to make sure justice is done.

Book 3

"Carole Ann is one of the most appealing heroines to appear in crime fiction in years."
   —Booklist

In the heartbreaking aftermath of her husband's death, Carole Ann, widely known as "the best damn trial lawyer in D.C.," left her criminal-law practice for what she hoped was a safer, saner life as a partner in her friend Jake's security firm. But when the richest man in Washington, D.C., hires her to find his daughter, she is caught up in a tangle of family relationships in which the stakes are not only money but life itself. Add to that a routine surveillance job that turns up three corpses and the kidnapping of her partner's beloved wife, Grace, and Carole Anne is—once again—in over her head in the kind of trouble that launches an all-out attack on her survival skills.

Carole Ann is one of a new wave of appealing African American females starring in a crime series.
   —Jenny McLarin, American Library Association

Before Carole Ann Gibson even has a chance to enjoy the white sand beaches of Isle de Paix, she senses there's something sinister lurking in this tiny Caribbean paradise. She's seen evidence of an international drug operation taking place, and somewhere on the island there's also a fugitive in hiding—Denis St. Almain, a drug kingpin on the run from a murder charge. Carole Ann's famous smarts, instincts, and raw courage will be tested to the utmost in Paradise Interrupted, the latest installment in Penny Mickelbury's acclaimed Carole Ann Gibson mystery series. Luckily, this particular sleuth—a Washington, D.C., lawyer-turned-private detective—loves a challenge.
