Ruby Herringbone is a recent divorcee of Atlantic Dale constable Mike Hannity and a counterpart to Ruth Hannigan from the Neverglades series. Ruby inherits Mike's dogs, Matheson and Growly, after Mike wins the lottery and leaves to go party in the Bahamas. She takes Matheson to Libby Lombardi's Christmas party where she meets the strange and bumbling Detective Stephen Smith. Ruby unwillingly gets swept up into Smith's hunt for the Christmas demon Krampus, only to find that Krampus is actually Smith's longtime rival, Sammy Vance, in disguise.

Ruby later sends Smith to the Bahamas to bring Mike back home so he can pay his alimony, although she tells Smith she needs him to hunt a voodoo shaman instead.

She appears in "An Everglades Christmas" and "Vacation's End."
