EXTRA DIRTY is book #2 in the Ruby Steele Mystery, which begins with ON THE ROCKS (Book #1).

Ruby Steele, 30, beautiful, fit, seems just like any other ex-pat hiding out in the Bahamas and playing local bartender. But unruly patrons find out the hard way: Ruby is a mixed-martial-arts pro, and not one you’d want to cross.

A 40-something female tourist seeks out Ruby, desperate for her help. She was out partying all night with her friend, both of them drinking way too much and doing things they don’t want their husbands to know about.

The problem is, as of 12 hours ago, her friend is missing.

Their husbands can’t know.

The cops can’t know.

She needs Ruby’s help. And she’s running out of time.

Ruby, though, has enough problems of her own. Shadowy figures from her old life are getting close. Way too close.

Can Ruby really pay detective and take on someone else’s problems? Who is this woman, anyway? And what isn’t she telling her?

Ruby can’t keep away from a bad decision.

And this time, it looks like, there won’t be any exception….

Welcome to the Bahamian world of Ruby Steele, replete with her local dive bar, her wily pet monkey, her major drinking problem, her (way) too many fights, her inability to get herself out of trouble, and her fists made of stone. Ruby’s life is a complete wreck. But there’s one thing she’s good at: capturing your heart.

EXTRA DIRTY (A RUBY STEELE MYSTERY) is book #2 in a page-turning mystery/thriller series, one that will linger with you long after the last page is read.

Book #3 (FULL-BODIED) in the series is also available.

Humorous cozy

I found this mystery humorous, but there was a little too much violence for me. I would recommend it though.

Ruby has her own problems and now has more to deal with.

Ruby Steele is hiding out in the Bahamas. She has a drinking problem and works in a bar. Go figure! One night two ladies come in, totally drunk. They are asked to leave. The next day one of the ladies comes to Ruby wanting help to find her friend. These two ladies don't impress Ruby much, especially when she finds out where they went after they were asked to leave the bar Ruby works in. A very interesting story indeed. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

Another great one!

Love the action and trying to figure out who the killer is. I want to read more from this author :)

A Mystery with lots of action

Ruby gets involved with Helen to help her find her friend and almost ends up on the wrong side of the law. A good mystery with lots of action and great characters. I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

A fast-paced, action-packed thriller

"Extra Dirty" is Mia Gold's best book yet! As usual, Ruby Steele has gotten herself into more than one life-threatening situation she didn't ask for. What made this book so great -- aside from the fast-paced storytelling -- was how much character depth was built for Ruby and her cast of characters. I absolutely can't wait to see what happens in the next book in this series.

I needed some light reading, and this filled the bill. Ruby's background is interesting, but, in reality, the Saudis would have tracked her down way before now. Still, the 2 books were enjoyable.

Good reading

Another good book by this author. Some laughter, suspense and a.lot.of bad

A different kind of writing. I recommend this author.


**3.5 stars**

So this is more a part two than a book two. You should definitely read book one first. Ruby is still a mess. I liked the storyline better in this book. Two tourists have a little too much fun in Ruby's second adventure.

I received a free copy of this book for my honest review.
