On a blazing July day in Central County, California, snitch Johnny Blue is murdered by lethal heroin injection. The undercover narcotics detective who handled Blue goes to the Sheriff’s Department seeking his ex-girlfriend, Christy Bristol. In the past he ridiculed her hobby of casting horoscopes but now he needs her expertise to help catch the man he suspects is behind Blue’s murder, a drug dealer named Lloyd Parr.
Stuck on the lowest rung of the law enforcement ladder, Christy becomes first a victim, then a hero, in the high-stakes game of narcotics trafficking. Through her eyes, the drug world is reduced to individual players, lost values and discarded dreams.
In the drug world of the Valley, there are no winners. Only losers.
“Fast-paced and riveting, FOOLS RUSH IN is a salute to good cops, an insider’s view of astrology, and a grim descent into the dark world of drug dealers.”
Carolyn Hart, Agatha Award-winning author of LETTER FROM HOME and DEAD DAYS OF SUMMER
“In her debut novel, Sunny Frazier ratchets up the tension. The astrology is a bonus.”
Denise Dietz, bestselling author of CHAIN A LAMBCHOP TO THE BED and FOOTPRINTS IN THE BUTTER.
“Frazier does an excellent job keeping the reader on the edge of the seat.”
Lesa Holstine, The Bookbitch
“Christy is a great character. Told almost entirely from her viewpoint, we can’t help but feel her fear and cheer her on. She is strong and clever and thinks fast on her feet. This series can go in a lot of directions and I plan to be there to see what comes next.”
Kim Reis, Armchair Reviews
“FOOLS RUSH IN is an enjoyable novel, and Christy an interesting and likable protagonist. I must admit to never having been one to follow astrology, but the author makes the subject very interesting. And I love Christy’s observation that ‘Pluto was still considered a planet in astrology-speak.’”
