The Three of Spades

Part 8 of the Red Dog Conspiracy

by Patricia Loofbourrow

As a private eye closes in on her city's secrets, there are those who will go to any lengths to stop her.

After the horrific events of our last chapter, Jacqui's in a medical predicament. If she wants to stay free from the Spadros crime syndicate, she has to find the cure for her condition - and time's running out.

But just when Jacqui thinks she's found what she's after, she finds herself instead in a much bigger - and deadlier - situation.

She's getting closer to discovering what mechanisms really lie beneath the city.
And the Red Dog Gang isn't the only one who wants her stopped.

Warning: on-screen death, captivity, child murder, terror, blood, bad language, smoking.
