Condition: Use (Good)
Atlanta journalist Patricia Conley's take on men has always been in reaction to a childhood of neglect: "There is an old saying that if you love a man, let him go, and if he loves you, he'll come back to you. I say hunt him down and kill him." Just when she'd thought she found someone who accepted her for the intelligent, fiercely independent martial artist that she is, her fiance disappears. But before Patricia can get her hands on him, someone else does - or so it seems. As she sets out to uncover just why Kenneth Lawson did her wrong (and who did him in), she encounters more than what she bargained for and finds herself on a treacherous path that leads to death for anyone who dares take it.
In What a Woman's Gotta Do, Patricia, stumbles upon a plot that could devastate humanity. And if that isn't enough, she's hunted by the police for murder, by a crazed geneticist who thinks she knows too much, and by undercover cop Jeff Samuels, who claims to love her. Torn between his affection and the memory of Kenneth, Patricia awakens to realizations about what it means to be alone, and what it means to be independent.
