Publisher's Summary

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 an unsupportive 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.

Critic Reviews

"Gritty and gripping, explosive and emotional, Kathleen Kent's The Dime grabs you from its opening scene and never lets go. Kent tears off the glossy facade of Dallas to show us a dark underbelly of crime. A great start from an exciting new series." (Jeff Abbott, New York Times best-selling author of The First Order)
"I loved The Dime. Betty is my hero. Smart, determined, and so unique. The writing is as smooth as Texas spring water and the story grabs you by the throat and drags you happily through a briar patch of surprise and excitement and leaves you exhausted under the Dallas skyline. More please!" (Joe R. Lansdale, author of Honky Tonk Samurai)
"Smart, gritty, and populated by a rogue's gallery of unforgettable characters, The Dime is relentless. As it races full-bore its way toward a climax that's truly creepy, the best you can do is hang on - and it's a hell of a ride." (Kelly Braffet, author of Save Yourself)

An excellent crime/detective novel

Look fwd to reading more! Good character development, believable plotline, clean enough for the young adult crowd, and a consistent tempo. A great beach read.

Texas accents?

Overall, the book was a good read, but I found the narrators Texas accents, and male voices really unpleasant and perhaps campy? Not sure what a real Texan would say, but those were not pleasant to listen to!
