“Dry Fire captures the heat and streets of North Florida with admirable precision. The character of cop Abigail Fitzpatrick is a convincing mix of someone who is absolutely jaded and yet capable of utter astonishment. If Edna Buchanan has a long lost sister, her name is Catherine Lewis and she lives upstate.” ―Madeleine Blais This hard-hitting police procedural―told from a female perspective―recalls the early days of Joseph Wambaugh in its crackling authenticity. With a rush of adrenaline, the novel plunges you into the life of police officer Abigail Fitzpatrick and the seamy world of North Florida as she matures from untested rookie into street-smart veteran. Along the way, Abby comes up against a panoply of crack-heads, domestic batterers, burned-out paramedics, low-lifes, and the everyday stress, danger, and harassment that come with being a cop―especially a female cop.
