Robert Fate sent me an ARC for the latest in his Baby Shark series. It’s called Jugglers at the Border. Before I could read it, I had to get it back from my dear husband, also a Baby Shark fan.
All the Baby Shark books are set mostly in Texas in the 50s and star Kristin Van Dijk, also known as Baby Shark. You could read this fourth book without having read the others, but I’d encourage you to start at the beginning. The first book will let you know why Kristin Van Dijk is known as Baby Shark and why she can be as lethal as her moniker would lead you to believe she could be.
In Jugglers at the Border, the focus is on Kristin’s partner, Otis Millett. Kristin and Otis team up with the Fort Worth police to find out who killed Millett’s estranged wife and ex-stripper Dixie Logan - and why. They’re on the trail of a gang of ruthless cop-killing bank robbers led by nut-job who hears voices and has no respect for life. To find the killer and the bank heist money, they’ll go from Fort Worth all the way to Taos, New Mexico, most of it at about a hundred miles an hour. And that’s about how fast you’ll be turning the pages.
The story is fast-paced and packed with action. Baby Shark lives up to her moniker. She knows how to handle herself and how to handle those who threaten her, her friends or the innocent. You might want to read Jugglers at the Border in one sitting - or you’ll be wondering what Kristin and Otis are up to when you’re not looking.
