When Arizona bounty hunter Jinx Ballou is outed as transgender, she’s thrown into a tailspin. The bail bond company she works for axes her, and she’s desperate to find a new job.

Boyfriend and fellow bounty hunter Conor gives her a tip about another agency that might be hiring, and soon Jinx lands the job and is on the hunt for an infamous handicapped girl who’s accused of killing her mother and fleeing town.

The teenager proves to be slippery, and Jinx’s job becomes even more dangerous when a Chechen crime boss gets involved and threatens her and the lives of the people she loves.

Fans of crime fiction will enjoy this fast-paced novel brimming with fresh characters, witty dialogue, and twists and turns galore.

Praise for Chaser

“Dharma Kelleher has created one of the most unique characters in crime fiction. Bounty hunter Jinx Ballou is a creation of contrasting parts. She’s tough but compassionate, profane but sensitive, butch but feminineand there’s no dark alley she won’t walk down. In Chaser, the only job she can get, after she’s outed as transgender in the press, brings her into the crosshairs of a murderous human trafficker nobody else would dare tangle with. Jinx takes the work and off we go on a thrilling ride that will have you turning pages into the wee hours of the morning!”
—Renee James, author of SEVEN SUSPECTS

“With Chaser, Dharma Kelleher breaks new ground and breaths new life into a great genre. Jinx Ballou is the best thing to happen to crime fiction since V. I. Warshawski.”
—Greg Barth, author of SELENA
