Series: Shell Scott
(From the publisher):
Shell Scott. He's a guy with a pistol in his pocket and sex and violence on his mind. The crime world's public enemy number one, this Casanova is a sucker for a damsel in distress. When a pair of lovely legs saunters into his office, he can't help but take the job, even when the case is a killer.
Shell thinks he has seen it all - until he sees the cult. It sacrifices the best for the worst, and when he discovers who's leading it, it almost killed him. Uniformed in black right down to the gun aimed at Shell, the leader resembles an embalmed undertaker. But it isn't just those gorgeous young girls he seeks to sacrifice. He wants Shell. Not dead or alive - just dead.
