Baltimore Postal Inspector Eamon Wearie is back to solve the mysterious case of a chilling chain of letters bringing unwelcome tidings and nasty terminations to a string of less-than-sensitive Maryland men, all by the hand of an enraged woman and her deadly notes.
“If you do what is asked, you may avoid the terrifying consequences,” declares each menacing note sent to a string of men across Maryland. Plenty of junk mail tells people they have won big… but how often does the postman deliver news of one’s impending loss—of life?
Somewhere out there is an enraged femme fatale, the sting of whose poison pen is second only to that of her avenging sword… or, in this case, her automatic weapon.
As the “lucky” recipients of these menacing notes decide to take their chances and ignore the message, Baltimore Postal Inspector Eamon Wearie is left seeing red as he tries to plumb the mind of a woman whose hurting has driven her to killing.
With his partner, Bunko Ryan, Wearie wades from the Dead Letter Depot into the thick of a lethal battle of the sexes—and in the process, becomes the next most likely male to be bagged…with a bullet.
