Inexperienced Sheriff Billy Keene is working his first kidnapping. Arlita Hardy is a strong-willed lottery-winning grandmother determined to handle things her own savage way.

Billy knows he’s in over his head. Everyone else in the small town of Caulfield knows it too.

When Arlita’s spoiled granddaughter is kidnapped, people are telling Billy how to do his job. Or, worse, not telling him anything at all.

Sheriff Billy Keene’s still learning on the job — and learning dark secrets about the colorful people in his odd hometown of Caulfield.

Recently, more than a few golfing buddies around town have traded in their first wives for mail-order Ukrainian brides. Of course, none of the ex-wives are happy about this latest marital trend.

So when racist vandalism appears around the time one of the mail-order brides is viciously attacked, Billy’s unsure:

Is he investigating a hate crime? Or a crime of passion?

With his own love life in chaos – and his life-life in the cross-hairs – Billy discovers that intense passions of all kinds can push people to commit acts of heartbreaking kindness… and unspeakable brutality.

The Grifted Girl: The 3rd Billy Keene Book (The Billy Keene Stories)
by Chad Sanborn
4.9 Stars (13 Reviews)
Genre: Thrillers | Literature & Fiction | Contemporary Fiction


Their teacher refers to them as grifted — intellectually gifted but very much at-risk high school students.

After Valerie Aguilar, an exceptionally bright, exceptionally rebellious teenager, makes a fool out of Sheriff Billy Keene during a classroom visit, Billy – barely a grownup himself – questions what he has to offer this younger generation coming of age in his beloved, if twisted, Caulfield.

Then, while investigating an assault, Billy hears whispers about Doyle and Ionia Ikey. The Ikeys run the town’s roller skating rink, video arcade, outdoor paintball field… and, rumor has it, lure vulnerable teens into their crime ring. Unfortunately, Billy has absolutely zero proof to move against them.

After Valerie refuses his help and gets herself deeply entangled in the Ikey’s crooked schemes, Billy discovers there’s no line he won’t cross to protect the girl.

But the Ikeys? They want to make sure the girl’s gone for good.
