One Two Punch - Pauline Baird Jones
Spinning off The Big Uneasy Series and Project Enterprise…
Welcome to New Orleans' and An Uneasy Future…
Earth date: 2061 Location: New Orleans New (NON)
Welcome to the future. Much has changed in future New Orleans, but some things never will. The food. The music. The weather. The crime rate...
This bundle contains Core Punch and Sucker Punch, the first two books in the series.
About Core Punch:
A kiss may be all they have life expectancy for.
When an intergalactic cop exchange program serves up an alien partner for NONPD Detective Violet Baker, she can’t help wishing the handsome alien would be a little less Joe Friday about keeping the pleasure out of their business. Yeah, he’s kind of purple and she can’t pronounce his name to save her life, but he’s almost the only guy in the New Orleans New police department that she’s not related to.
Dzholh “Joe” Ban!drn has come a long way hunting the evil that has infiltrated Vi’s floating city. When he meets his charming partner, he discovers another reason to stamp out evil. If only he wasn’t keeping so many secrets from her…
When an epic hurricane heads their way, they are sent dirt side to New Orleans Old (NOO) on a rescue mission. But murder and sabotage strands them in the heart of the raging storm.
As they fight for their lives, Joe realizes that the evil he’s hunting is actually hunting them….
About Sucker Punch:
Vi never liked math and aftermath isn’t floating her boat either….
Hurricane Wu Tamika Felipe has moved north. Yeah, the storm almost killed Detective Violet Baker, but it also blew some romance her way. Her uptight partner, Dzholh “Joe” Ban!drn actually kissed her.
But there's no time for any follow-up kissing, much to Vi’s regret. They are hunting something very bad. Something that tried to kill them while they were dirt side during the storm.
And has now escaped up into New Orleans New.
It’s not business as usual, though there is some deja vu in there, when Vi and Joe get sent to a FEMA camp to check out a dead body.
Until that body turns into a trail that might lead to the evil it. Or to its next victim.
Just when Vi thinks things are crapeau enough, the MITSC (Men In Top Secret Color) show up and take over their case. Are they after Joe or the evil it?
Before they can find out, the evil it lures them into a trap.
It’s ‘it’ versus them and it hasn’t lost yet….
