Ambitious and impulsive.

Young radio reporter Lisa Powers has a nose for news, but sometimes makes reckless decisions when it comes to covering the crime beat.

Lisa reports on a shocking homicide that halts a white-collar money-laundering trial, but finds herself facing down the killer. She hunts for the murderer of a Jane Doe found in the desert decades ago that may have something to do with a Native American moccasin maker.

There’s a smell of death in her “Haunted Hallows” mystery theatre podcast, leading to yet another mystery to be solved.

Equalizer is an action-packed novella and prequel to Laurie Fagen’s debut crime fiction novel, Fade Out.

Sparks fly between them, but Abby is extremely hesitant to accept a date with Chris. Abby has a secret she’s desperate to keep, but Chris is just as eager to find out what it is.
