Jacquelyn Rene Taliaferroabout this book: Inspired by actual events, Picking Up Strays is the first in a series of stories featuring Amanda Hughes, a lone wolf Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigations Detective whose drive to catch a serial killer immerses her in the seedy world of truck stop prostitution.
From dark parking lots to grimy strip clubs, Amanda crisscrosses Oklahoma searching for a deviant all the while dealing with her own demons. Her often dark sexual desires mired in the psychological torment of her military service lead her into places in her soul she never wanted to visit.
Picking Up Strays is a unique thriller with a cast of characters as varied as the landscape of Oklahoma. Cowboys, prostitutes, low-life club owners, and a checkered family are among the cast of characters that guide Amanda to a final confrontation with the killer.
A novel of terror, torment, and titillation, Picking Up Strays will leave the reader repulsed at times, aroused at others, and always turning the page.
