Vice detective Ruby Rivera is one piece of evidence away from taking down notorious drug dealer, Mookie Spinks. But when her cover is blown, she reaches out to the only drug dealer who can piece it back together.
LA kingpin, Alejandro Gutierrez, needs an exterminator-one who'll take care of the rats in his buildings and the rat putting them there. When Rivera calls in a favor, he offers his expertise on one condition: she must provide information leading him to an old enemy. Trouble is, the detective knows Gutierrez serves one way--bloody.
When bullets start flying, Gutierrez is torn between saving himself and helping Rivera get her mark. Will their twisted alliance survive, or will Rivera cross a line she can't uncross?

Darcy Walker is benched after an off-duty incident and finds herself behind a desk as a 911 dispatch operator. But when a caller tells her a high-end smash-and-grab is being committed a few miles away, she’s left helpless when no units are available to respond. In Heist & Seek, LA’s most danger-prone rookie wrestles with old demons—stay put and color between the lines or go rogue and stop the crime herself.
Heist & Seek is the shock-a-minute sixth novel in the Darcy Walker Crime Thriller series. If you like gritty twists and heroines with a sense of humor, then you’ll love AJ Lape's newest funny mystery.
Writing Is Fun, But All Consuming!
What The Readers Say
Based on Darcy’s rec, I tried GM's Dark Magic coffee. It's indeed everything Darcy said about it. Give Green Mountain’s Double Diamond a try!
I love love love your Darcy Walker series!!! I’ve read them all the way thru twice and can’t wait for book 6. Please tell me there’s another book coming?
Are there going to be anymore audio books? I love listening to the books when I’m at work and I’ve already listened to one and two multiple times.
I can’t wait until the next book in the Darcy Walker Series comes out. How many books do you think there are going to be in total in the series?
