Overview

A half million dollars in drug proceeds, guarded by three men with automatic weapons. For Wallace Stroby's determined heroine, professional thief Crissa Stone, and her team, stealing it was the easy part. But when the split goes awry in a blaze of gunfire, Crissa finds herself on the run with a duffel bag of stolen cash, bound by a promise to deliver part of the take to the needy family of one of her slain partners.
In pursuit are the drug kingpin's lethal lieutenants and a former Detroit cop with his own deadly agenda. They think the money's there for the taking, for whoever finds her first. But Crissa doesn't plan to give it up without a fight, even as her mission of mercy puts her and a young child in mortal danger, with forces on both sides of the law closing in. After all, a debt is a debt...even if it has to be paid in blood.
With "Shoot the Woman First," Wallace Stroby delivers another powerful, lyrical novel, his third featuring one of the most original female characters in hardboiled fiction.

Stroby’s Crissa Stone is emerging as one of the more compelling female criminals in mystery fiction. In her third outing (after 2012’s Kings of Midnight), she once again displays bravery, cunning, loyalty, and a big heart matched by a willingness to embrace the violence her lifestyle necessitates. In Detroit, careless drug lord Marquis Johnson’s sloppy operation offers a tempting take of up to $500,000. When the heist hits a snag that results in the deaths of Crissa’s two ad hoc partners, Charlie Glass and Larry Black, she heads for Florida with half the loot. There she hopes to find Black’s family to share bad news and some of the money, but ruthless ex-cop Frank Burke is following the same tracks. As Burke leaves a trail of bodies in his wake, Crissa puts her life on the line to keep Black’s widow and little girl safe. Stroby nails this taut, gripping contest between well-matched opponents. Agent: Robin Rue, Writers House. (Dec.)
