Brooklyn's toughest female detective takes on Dallas?and neither is ready for the fight. Dallas, Texas is not for the faint of heart. Good thing for Betty Rhyzyk she's from a family of take-no-prisoners Brooklyn police detectives. But her Big Apple wisdom will only get her so far when she relocates to the Big D, where Mexican drug cartels and cult leaders, deadbeat skells and society wives all battle for sunbaked turf. Betty is as tough as the best of them, but she's deeply shaken when her first investigation goes sideways. Battling a group of unruly subordinates, a persistent stalker, a formidable criminal organization, and an unsupportive girlfriend, the unbreakable Detective Betty Rhyzyk may be reaching her limit. Combining the colorful pyrotechnics of Breaking Bad with the best of the gritty crime genre, The Dime is Kathleen Kent's brilliant mystery debut and the launch of a sensational new series.

Betty Rhyzyk kicks butt. She is my new favorite character and this is my new favorite series. Author Kathleen Kent needs to get writing, because I can't wait for more! Betty is a tough, funny, red-headed lesbian cop, who moves from Brooklyn to work for Dallas PD. Now, there is a lot of drug related crime in Texas, but her newest case is something entirely different. This story is fantastic in audio, you'll want to keep cleaning, driving, or anything at all, just to keep listening. One thing you won't be doing? Falling asleep.
