From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Mara Jacobs comes Book 2 in the Anna Dawson mystery series.
My name is Anna Dawson, and I’m back.
Unfortunately, so is JoJo.
When the loan shark enforcer who beat me up years ago is found murdered, I’m thinking it’s my lucky day. Until I’m questioned as a possible suspect. I have an alibi, but not one I can divulge. Helping college basketball star Raymond Joseph shave points is not exactly something I want to share with the cops.
And not just any cop, but Detective Jack Schiller, my recent ex. A man who got a little too close, and seems intent on getting closer. I want Jack back, but I know it’ll never work while I still need JoJo in my life. Though, I’m starting to think that maybe I’m strong enough to try.
But the enforcer’s murder is the least of my problems as Raymond’s point-shaving becomes public.
I’m going to need every gambling skill I’ve got to win this hand.
*NOTE: The case is solved, the perpetrator caught, but there are a few threads that are continuing on through the next book and the series, one of which would be considered a cliffhanger.
Books in the Anna Dawson series thus far:
1 – Against The Odds
2 – Against The Spread
3 – Against The Rules
