Assistant district attorney turned Houston bounty hunter DIXIE FLANNIGAN is no cream puff, as she amply demonstrates in her well-received debut, 1998's Bitch Factor. She's rough-and-ready, and her combination of brains, cunning and bitchiness is legendary in the jails and courtrooms.
And just case you think Dixie relies two heavily on the "bitch factor" to get things done, the 1999 sequel allows her to draw on the "rage factor."
Alas, there's some rather soggy sub-plots introduced in Bitch Factor that threaten this character's potential. Hopefully, the series won't degenerate down to Mildly-Peeved Factor or even worse, the Overly Melodramatic and Bloated Soap Opera Trying to Pass Itself Off as Hardboiled Factor.
Like Archie Bell and the Drells said, "Tighten up!"
