The Dime

Brooklyn's toughest female detective takes on Dallas--and neither is ready for the fight. Dallas, Texas is not for the faint of heart. Good thing for Betty Rhyzyk she's from a family of take-no-prisoners Brooklyn police detectives. But her Big Apple wisdom will only get her so far when she relocates to The Big D, where Mexican drug cartels and cult leaders, deadbeat skells and society wives all battle for sunbaked turf. Betty is as tough as the best of them, but she's deeply shaken when her first investigation goes sideways. Battling a group of unruly subordinates, a persistent stalker, a formidable criminal organization, and a disappointed girlfriend, the unbreakable Detective Betty Rhyzyk may be reaching her limit. Combining the colorful pyrotechnics of Breaking Bad with the best of the gritty crime genre, THE DIME is Kathleen Kent's brilliant mystery debut and the launch of a sensational new series.

Dallas Noir

One of Texas Monthly's "5 Things You’ll be Talking about in November" "All in all, the stories in Dallas Noir have an unsettling, slightly creepy presence that is not just appropriate but completely necessary for a collection of noir fiction. If you think Dallas is boring or white-bread -- well, perhaps you haven’t gotten out much and seen the dark edges of Big D for yourself. And if you haven’t, maybe you don’t even want to." --Dallas Morning News "If you want to delve into the creepier sides of Dallas, this is a good start." --Lakewood/East Dallas Advocate "Dallas Noir is a fiction mosaic, showing a city of class divisions precariously held together by money, land, and false love. ...
