What people are saying about the Julie Collins mystery series:“Hard as nails, a barroom brawler—and a chick!...Tough, sensitive, and smart, Julie Collins is a welcome addition to the PI genre. In BLOOD TIES, she breaks all the rules.”
Stephanie Kane, author, SEEDS OF DOUBT
“If you’re looking for one of those heroines who refrains from any and all vices and who shrieks at the sound of gunfire, you may want to pass on this one. But if you prefer your heroine to be a little on the dark side, especially one who likes to smoke, drink, engage in the occasional sexcapade, and knows how to kick some ass with little fear, this highly engaging and fearless PI fits the bill. Armstrong has created in Julie Collins one of the more captivating and emotionally charged female characters to come along in awhile…”
Stephanie Padilla, New Mystery Reader, on HALLOWED GROUND
"Armstrong hits this one right out of the ballpark with complex characters, snappy dialogue and interesting plots. The author also ties up a whodunit with a surprising twist. This one's a winner."
Barb Anderson, Romantic Times BookClub Magazine on SHALLOW GRAVE, 4 ½ stars, Dec. 2007 TOP PICK!
