A. F. Carter - The Yards - Paperback

October 2021 Hardboiled & Noir Crime Club Pick

The rundown town of Baxter doesn't have a lot going for it, but there's always somewhere for single mum Git O'Rourke to cut loose and forget about her life. All she wanted was to put aside worried thoughts of her daughter, Charlie, and find a handsome stranger to spend the night with.

She never expected to be accused of murder.

Now Git is in deep trouble. She's just woken up in a dark hotel room with a strange man she can't seem to rouse, and surrounded by money and guns.

When the dead body is discovered with a bullet through its forehead, Officer Delia Mariola is one of the first on the scene. She knows the victim is connected to the mob, but something feels off – all signs point to a pick-up gone wrong. Which means that all signs point to Git.

Suspenseful, thrilling and unpredictable, The Yards is a dark mystery with two unforgettable women at its core.
