That’s how Hoot first met Jessica Vega, “Jesse – as in Jesse James, the famous outlaw,” she explained, expressing her preference for the shorthand version of her name.  She was a thirty-something ex-marine warrant officer, once military police-now a sky marshal, wearing a barely-to-the-knee-length business skirt with a matching tailored blazer that encouraged Hoot to wonder where she concealed her weapon. 

“So you’re Ezra Hooten, the famous shooter,” she said with a heavy hint of derision in her otherwise sultry voice, offering a firm handshake.

From Skyshooter, sequel to Troubleshooter.
