Book 4 in The Penningtons Investigate

Professor Rand Cunningham is shot and left for dead on the Penningtons’ front lawn, and Lyssa Pennington could be next. Who’s behind the drive-by hit?

• The husband of one of Rand’s conquests?

• The lawyer-brother of the student whose sexy video went viral on the Internet?

• The father of the actress passed over for a part in the movie of Rand’s bestseller?

Detective Shaughnessy hunts for the badass truck seen speeding away from the scene.

Lyssa and Kyle follow a lead to Norway, where villains, trolls, and other bombshells will change their lives forever.




Rand gripped her wrist and swung her behind him so fast she fell on her back on the grass.

With a loud pop, the first shot jolted his body. Blood spread over his shirt at the shoulder. The second shot spun him backward. He crashed face first on top of her, clutching his gut, his face grimacing in agony.

A third bullet shattered a window of her car.

With a cacophony of screeching tires, the truck took off.

In the ominous silence that followed, Lyssa lay sobbing, in shock, under Rand’s dead weight. Something wet and sticky flowed over her left hand, which was pinned under him.

“Rand, talk to me.” No response. God, tell me what to do.

Phone. Tote bag. Can’t reach.

Rand’s phone. Jacket pocket. She pressed 911.

“My friend’s been shot,” she sobbed at the operator.


She blurted out the address. “Please, he can’t be dead,” she choked out.

Thank you, C.T. Collier and RABT Book Tours
