Baby Shark's GRASS WIDOW LEGACY (Baby Shark series book #6) by Robert Fate

The story opens in June 1961 in Fort Worth, Texas –– Kristin Van Dijk aka Baby Shark takes action to rid the world of two men who have raped and murdered a thirteen-year-old girl. After teasing death to accomplish her goal, Kristin must face the wrath of Otis Millett, her partner, and Lt. Carl Lynch, Lead Homicide Detective at FWPD, two friends that are concerned about her wrong-headed, reckless behavior.

She is given a dressing down, and told she needs a change of scenery and time to get her head on straight, time to work out the issues that are driving her toward self-destruction. "Talk to a professional," Lynch advises. "Face your demons, pull it together," Otis suggests. Both men propose that she get away for a few weeks, shoot some pool, try to remember how to relax.

And so begins the sixth book of the Baby Shark series: Kristin, now twenty-six, on "vacation" with loaded guns and pool cues. What could go wrong?

After a "stop and go" at Henry Chin's to fine tune her pool and pistol skills, she heads south to "live off the land." Her plan is to earn her keep shooting 9-ball in pool parlors from San Angelo to San Antonio, where she'll meet up with Deputy U.S. Marshal Coit Bowden, her boyfriend with the light green eyes. Some time alone with him can't be bad for her.

But life is not so simple, and the journal Henry has asked her to keep of her travels begins filling with dangerous encounters and remarkable characters, including the Grass Widow, an ex-WWII pilot who reminds Kristin of her mother.

To say more might ruin the surprises in this quintessential action-adventure story the readers of the Baby Shark series have come to expect.
