It’s time for THE BURN

THE BURN, the much anticipated sequel to THE DIME, by Edgar-nominated and ALA award-winning author, Kathleen Kent, will hit shelves February 11, 2020. But, thanks to her publisher Mulholland Books, Kathleen was toasting receipt of her ARCs with a bottle of Redhead red wine last night!

How do you celebrate the arrival of the Advanced Reading Copies of THE BURN?. . .With a bottle of Redhead Red wine, of course!⁣

Well, I’m happy to report that, due to my cheek, I’ll be in receipt of one of those much coveted copies for review. So, as they say, stand by for more.

All power to the Gingers!


There’s not much that can make Detective Betty Rhyzyk flinch. But the wounds from her run-in with the apocalyptic cult The Family are still fresh, and she’s having trouble readjusting to life as it once was. She’s back at work as a narcotics detective, but something isn’t right–at work, where someone has been assassinating confidential informants, or at home, where she struggles to connect with her loving wife, Jackie. To make matters worse, Betty’s partner seems to be increasingly dependent on the prescription painkillers he was prescribed for the injuries he sustained rescuing her.

Forced into therapy, a desk assignment, and domestic bliss, Betty’s at the point of breaking when she decides to go rogue, investigating her own department and chasing down phantom sightings of the cult leader who took her hostage. The chase will lead her to the dark heart of a drug cartel terrorizing Dallas, and straight to the crooked cops who plan to profit from it all.

There’s never a dull moment in Dallas, especially now that Det. Betty’s back.

    Did someone say cult?! I’m in 😀
    Hope the second book will live up to the first! 🙂 Sounds really good!

      Oh I think you’d love THE DIME, Norrie. It really was a blast. And I’m so looking forward to the sequel, I think it’s going to be even better. And who doesn’t love a good cult twist, right? 😉

  2. Congratulations, Alexandra! There’s such a great feeling when you get advanced copies of not only anticipated books but one by favorite writers. Enjoy💜

      Thank you, Jonetta. I’m really lucky and excited. I thoroughly enjoyed The Dime and can’t wait to get stuck into this one to see what Det. Betty is up to this time.
