Ring Girl: A Kira Brightwell Short Story

Trevor Wright never planned to become Kira Brightwell’s sidekick.

Before he started to tag along with her to take down bad guys and solve crimes (possibly uninvited), his life mainly consisted of beautiful women, flashy cars, and gambling.

…Nowhere near as interesting as what he does now.

Plus, Kira finally seems to consider him as someone potentially useful. A mark of his persistent charm, no doubt.

But can he tackle a case solo, without her finding out?

A twisting, stand-alone story from the Kira Brightwell crime fiction series by award-winning author, Jacquelyn Smith.
