Lowcountry Bribe by C. Hope Clark is the first in the Carolina Slade Mystery Series. Set in rural Charleston County, Lowcountry Bribe introduces readers to Carolina Slade, a smart, focused, sometimes over-thinking woman who feels safe in the bureaucratic world of the U.S. Department of Agriculture . . . until she’s offered a bribe . . . from a hog farmer.

Slade follows proper protocol and reports Jesse Rawlings to superiors. The next thing she knows, Slade is besieged by Senior Special Agent Wayne Largo from the Office of Inspector General in Atlanta. He and his partner have come to investigate Slade’s accusations, and if possible catch Jesse in the act of handing over money. While the situation disrupts her life, Slade reminds herself that following the book in reporting the incident was the right move.

However, events do not go smoothly. The IG isn’t telling Slade everything. The agents are also investigating the disappearance of Slade’s manager the year before in connection to possible land fraud. And when the sting on Jesse goes bad, the case is put on hold and Agent Largo is recalled to Atlanta, leaving Slade exposed and vulnerable, fearing not only for her life and job, but for her children’s safety.
