Atlanta private eye (and former cop) DODGE HANLEY may be one "tough customer," but he's easily lured back to Houston by an old girlfriend, Caroline King, to track down the man who attacked her daughter Berry, in Sandra Brown's Tough Customer (2010).
Dodge teams up with a local deputy to track down the fugitive, who's apparently a lot more unhinged and dangerous than they thought, totally obsessed with Berry and vowing vengeance on her boyfriend. Of course, this being Sanda Brown, Berry -- unknown to her -- is actually Dodge's daughter,
Sandra Brown is one of the world's best-selling authors, not afraid to toss a little raunch and violence into her romantic thrillers. She's never really done a private eye series, but she did introduce Dodge in a previous book, 2009's Smash Cut, where he was an investigator hired by the book's protagonist, hot shot defense attorney Derek Mitchell. She wrote about another P.I., John Trapper, in Seeing Red (2017).
