The Cop with the Pink Pistol

(A book in the Donna Prima series)
A novel by

She doesn't do jiggle. She isn't into shoes or jewelry. She doesn't wear makeup (or, as she calls it, war paint). NYPD Homicide Detective Donna Prima's sole concession to modern womanhood is the pink .38 she wears strapped to her ankle. Not that she has much opportunity to use it, having been demoted to desk duty for a serious infraction of NYPD regulations. On a routine burglary follow-up in Greenwich Village, Donna meets soap-opera actor Conner Anderson (Crawford on the top-rated Vampire Love Nest), who alerts her to some strange goings-on in a liquor store across the street. Sick of being chained to her desk, Donna decides to investigate. Meanwhile, the Feds need her help on a cold murder case as they investigate a theft from a nuclear power plant. But would-be detective Conner Anderson wants to come along for the ride. And Donna, an Italian-American from Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, can't deny the mutual chemistry she feels with this Southern WASP from Tupelo, Mississippi. Will taking on Conner as a civilian partner be the start of something beautiful or the biggest mistake of Donna's life? The Cop with the Pink Pistol is that rare debut that fires on all cylinders, combining a tough and likable heroine with a story that'll keep you hooked until you turn the final page. Sit back, meet Donna Prima, and let Gray Basnight's sharp New York prose take you behind the scenes at the Sexy Sixth Precinct and Sunday dinner at the Prima household in Bensonhurst. Drama is sure to ensue in both places.
