Dawna Shepherd loves her family, working as an FBI Special Agent, and playing basketball.
She’s celebrating Christmas in her home town when a bounty hunter pursues her college student brother home from Lubbock.
Certain that Fugitive Team Leader Tommy O’Brien is chasing the wrong quarry, Dawna stops him cold at the Shepherd front door.
But she knows O’Brien won’t give up. And all her crime-fighter instincts are screaming that the bounty hunter is going to ruin this holiday for someone she loves.
Can law-abiding Dawna find a way to save Christmas?
Nominated by members of Mystery Readers International for the 2003 Macavity Award for best mystery short story, “Boot Scoot” shows a softer side to the hardnosed FBI agent who appears regularly in Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine and whose past adventures are collected in Run & Gun: A Dozen Tales of Girls with Guns. Dawna plays a supporting role in three Casey Collins international thrillers, the most recent release being China Box.
