Ex-cop Lanalee Patterson can deal with the Street. She can deal with the Judge. She can deal with the Judge’s dog. Dealing with her pure Force father? Not so much.
-a Lanalee Patterson story-
If former cop turned private eye Lanalee Patterson mixed it up with an abusive husband or a street gang, fine by her. Helping the kids—that’s the ticket.
But she never expected to “mix it up” with Judge Verna Carlisle, or any other woman. The straight-laced Judge definitely changed Lana’s views on that.
The one Lanalee can’t deal with? Retired Detective Sergeant David Patterson—her father. Family never really worked between them. And now with her departure from the Force and the revelation of her relationship with Verna, his visit turns even less fun than usual.
When trouble hits, she‘s driven to her limits by COPS and FATHERS.
