Jane Baskinabout this book: She's Hawkeye with a handgun. She's a trauma nurse. She has the body of a dancer and the mind of a wolf.
And she's sixty years old.
When hubby dies after a long illness…. presto! She's broke. Fold, or play?
Armed only with a facelift and a nine-millimeter, she takes to the road. Then in an RV camp she picks up a plane delivery job that takes her straight into a life of crime…and also into the arms of John Domini, a mobster who hates his job.
Misfits in every world, they team up through crazy capers, wild chases and side trips into the very weird, to win a second chance at life.
Do they succeed? Ask the telepathic tiger, who muses with astonishing perception on human nature. Ask the biker queen who discovers that magic is real. Ask the mob boss who surrenders a life of denial to a talking fox who foretells the future. Ask yourself: what makes sense? Really?
Bragging rights: Jane of the Jungle won the silver in the Foreword Book of the Year contest, Honorable Mention in the Hollywood Book Festival, and Honorable Mention in this year's Indie Excellence Awards.
