If you would like a paperback version of this book, please see: http://www.amazon.com/Legwork-Volume-1-Katy-Munger/dp/1477571795/ref=sr_1_cc_1?s=aps&ie=UTF8&qid=1348533093&sr=1-1-catcorr&keywords=Legwork+%28Casey+Jones+Mystery+Series%29.
Legwork introduces Casey Jones, an aggressive, smart ass female detective from the deep South. Yes, there are lots of "assertive" female protagonists hitting the book stores these days, but most of them leave me scatching my head and thinking "That's assertive? I'll show you assertive!". Which, ahem, I believe Casey does. My goal in writing the Casey Jones books is to provide a very funny, entertaining read without sacrificing a good mystery and while geting in a few good licks at the more pompous among us. I'll let you decide if I succeeded. I try to avoid Southern cliches in my books and give you a realistic peek at the modern South and the motley crew that now occupies it. Legwork has gotten great reviews which, for some mysterious reason, do not appear on this website. And on that note, all the talk about bad language and references to sex in the book is an exaggeration, I'm far more foul in person. Drop me an e-mail when you're done and keep an eye out for "Out Of Time", due in August of 1998 from Avon Books. -Katy Munger
