Karen Sisco is a television series about a fictional United States Marshal created by novelist Elmore Leonard.

As a U.S. Deputy Marshal, based on Miami, Florida's Gold Coast, Karen must deal with the underbelly of South Beach nightlife and Palm Beach highlife while tracking down fugitives. She also struggles to win the respect of her fellow officers. Karen occasionally gets advice from her father, a retired Miami police officer turned private investigator. He’s Karen’s confidant, counselor, and confessor. He is also her rock when her confidence wavers.



Prior to the events of the series, the character appeared in two stories:

  • "Karen Makes Out", a 1996 short story, available in two collections: Murder for Love, and When the Women Come Out to Dance, and Other Stories
  • Out of Sight, a 1996 novel, and 1998 film wherein she was played by Jennifer Lopez, and Marshall Sisco was played by Dennis Farina.
