Revenge-in-3-Parts

REVENGE IN 3 PARTS



She fought for justice.

Now she seeks revenge.

In this gripping psychological thriller and debut noir that takes the reader from Paris to Portland, Oregon, and finally to Kauai, criminal attorney Angeline Porter thrives on crime—righting wrongs, fighting for justice, putting away murderers. But after rebuking the sexual advances of the head of her firm—plus putting away his friend, a serial rapist—Angeline is disbarred.

When Angeline’s beautiful, but troubled sister Sophie commits suicide, she seeks to right the myriad of injustices that provoked her sister and acts to avenge her death. This time she’s forced to fight crime outside the law and travels to Paris to punish the man responsible.

Back home, guilt for not protecting Sophie drives Angeline to investigate, and after discovering Sophie had a secret life, Ang knows she’s in danger. She will lose everything, including her husband, as she battles an FBI agent, a stalker, an international crime extortionist racket, and an obsessively friendly neighbor. To maintain her grip on reality, she drinks and pops meds in order to battle secretive, powerful forces that will do anything to stay on top.

Taut and intense with heart-pumping twists, Revenge in 3 Parts uses classic noir language laced with modern tropes—a hacker named Snoop, the Ashley Madison dating site, and Snapchat—and burns with contemporary femmes-noir energy creating a new crime genre and heroine for a disturbed modern age.

FROM REVENGE in 3 PARTS

“My hand’s gone to sleep.”
“Must be that gun you keep fondling. Are you a lawyer, a cop, or a PI?” he asked. “Samantha Spade, Undercover?”
I burst out laughing. “You’re an asshole.”
“I love a dirty mouth on a woman.”
“Yeah, but your pickup lines suck.”
“It happens.”
