Jersey Barnes thinks she has retired from a risk-filled career as a private security specialist. A sexy, hard-hitting brunette, she’s ready to enjoy her newfound free time and is looking forward to leaving home without a weapon.

But when her boyfriend asks her for a simple favor, she can’t turn him down. What should be a routine surveillance job lands Jersey smack-dab in the middle of a high-stakes cover-up, a double kidnapping, and a scheme that may steal millions of dollars from hard-working Americans.

With input from her business partner, Ox (a Lumbee Indian whose savory looks she can’t quite ignore), a comedic group of her aging father’s poker buddies, a computer hacker named Soup, and a faithful dog, Jersey sets out to prevent what might be the cyber crime of the century

 In Southern Fatality, T. Lynn Ocean serves up an action-packed, sun-soaked adventure set in the historic port city of Wilmington, North Carolina.
 
Advance Praise for Southern Fatality
 
“Ocean puts the D in dangerous.”
---John Hart, author of The King of Lies
 
Southern Fatality reads like a string of firecrackers---one bang after another. The action is nonstop and the tone is smart and sassy. Jersey Barnes is a character with moxie, manners, and mental acuity--a protagonist to root for!
---Carolyn Haines, author of Penumbra and Fever Moon

I was not thinking like a handicapped person. Breathing deeply, I reminded myself to get into character.
Well concealed inside the brace, two pieces of a .410 derringer snugly taped to opposite sides of my knee were only slightly irritating. The barrel easily separated from the action and I’d timed myself reassembling
