Two girls gone...
Shannon hustled to her car and dug into her black purse, searching for her car keys, "Where the heck did they go?" He quickly put his hand over her mouth as she screamed and thrashed, slid the van door open, and dragged her inside... She tried to scream through the duct tape pasted over her mouth. It was only the beginning.

One detective under pressure...
The ruggedly handsome Mac McRyan, a fourth-generation cop, is faced with a complicated brazen daytime kidnapping, a media storm surrounding the case, and political scrutiny. An abduction is just the beginning in a case of betrayal and revenge that will ultimately strike at the heart and soul of the St. Paul Police Department.

And no time left.
From the searing streets of St. Paul to the murky waters and beaches of the St. Croix River, DEADLY STILLWATER is a book you won't be able to put down until its last gripping minute.

Stealing women's power is easy ... restoring it is deadly.

Detective Chief Inspector AJ Colt lives his life in the limelight. The charismatic star of New Scotland Yard is public relations gold. Everyone loves him. Well, almost everyone. For three years a vicious serial rapist has been taunting and tormenting him, sending him recordings of every sickening crime he commits. But with no DNA from the devastated victims the trail is stone cold dead, until a familiar landmark leads Colt back to his hometown - the last place on earth he wants to be.

It's also the last place on earth Detective India Kane wants him. The obsessively private local keeps her head down, works hard, and doesn't bother anybody. She likes life that way. When people bother her, things have a tendency to get messy. She's just landed a career changing case - a brutal drug-facilitated rape investigation - and doesn't take kindly to the arrogant newcomer parachuted in to snatch it from her.

The hunt is on.

But Colt and Kane's twisted prey is just warming up. As he escalates, so does his power. And he won't stop until he's stolen it all ... even if it means bringing his own brand of terror directly to those who hunt him.

When their lives collide - it won't just be the victims' worlds that are torn apart.


Stealing Power is the first in a series of gripping psychological crime thrillers featuring British Detectives India Kane and AJ Colt. Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Robert Bryndza, Caroline Mitchell, Carol Wyer and Patricia Gibney.

A young girl returns from the brink of death with an incredible gift. Now, the dead have a voice... and law enforcement is listening.

When a young Jordan Quest is discovered lying on the bottom of the pool at her family's stately mansion she is pulled out of the water and pronounced "vital signs absent" by the attending paramedics.

Unwilling to give up on the girl, Jordan is rushed to the hospital in a desperate attempt to revive her. Teetering on the brink of death, aware of her surroundings but unable to communicate with the trauma team who are working frantically to save her life, a strange and mysterious presence makes itself known to her. In that moment, Jordan's life is changed forever.

She calls it The Gift, and her unprecedented abilities will have a profound influence on the world's understanding of psychic phenomenon. Hers is now the voice of the dead. And law enforcement is listening.

Racing against the clock to help police locate and bring to justice killers who have long evaded capture, Jordan soon discovers an unsettling truth. Is her astounding ability really a gift? Or is it a curse that brings with it unimaginable consequences?

This fast-paced series prequel also includes a six-chapter preview of "Intruders," book one in the Jordan Quest series. The Jordan Quest novels are best described as tightly-written, page-turning suspense mixed with witty dialogue and high-octane action adventure.

If you like stories featuring a tough-as-nails female protagonist and bad guy's you'll love to hate, the Jordan Quest series should be at the top of your 'must-read' list.

Jordan Quest will appeal to readers who enjoy crime, police procedural, mystery, thriller and suspense, psychic adventure, serial killer, FBI thriller books and movies and more.

Each Jordan Quest book can be read as a stand-alone story. This is the 2018 release schedule:

Book # 0: Jordan Quest (short-story series prequel, roughly one-tenth the length of an average Jordan Quest novel. Includes a six-chapter preview of book one, "Intruders.")

Book # 1: Intruders
Book # 2: The Sin Keeper
Book # 3: Mr. Grimm (coming soon) 

WHAT FANS ARE SAYING ABOUT JORDAN QUEST

Jordan is a very likable main character and I can see great possibilities as the series progresses. Can't wait to read the next book in the series!"

"Was anxious to read (Intruders) after reading the prequel and I was not disappointed. Loved the character of Jordan Quest, loved the pace and it was truly a great story. I look forward to the next book."

"I really liked the setting for the series and the main character. The prequel set the stage for the next books to come. It was a real page turner that held my interest and I could tell right away that I would be anticipating each new book in the series.

Retired MMA fighter Jeffry Charles was ready to hop on a flight home after vacationing in the Philippines. But his overactive sense of empathy drives him headlong into a web of international conspiracy involving Islamic extremists, a billionaire's kidnapped granddaughter, a United States Senator, and a mysterious group known only as 'Atlantis.' Murder, intrigue, politics, and gunfights greet him at every turn, but this unlikely hero pushes on at grave personal peril to help Ruby, the kidnapping victim, escape the fate spun for her by the mysterious Atlanteans.

To survive the harrowing gauntlet he finds himself trapped within, he will need to accept the aid of enigmatic 'allies' who might be every bit as dangerous as the gunmen trying to kill him at every turn. But more than that, he will need to employ every skill he has acquired over his largely misspent life, and his courage will be tested time and again as his enemies seek to break him both physically and emotionally. To win against such odds, he will need to prove himself worthy of his fighting moniker:

Lionheart.

Justice has evolved! When justice feels unjust, it’s hardly fair for a savage, merciless, killer to live a long life on death row. “Rise of the Iron Eagle: The Iron Eagle Series Book One” in the Los Angeles based thirty novel Iron Eagle Series gives readers a surprising anti-hero in the form of a vigilante killer. While the guilty beg his mercy, the Eagle extracts justice for the victims of these animals, when the Eagle finally allows death to take his prey he ends them with these final chilling words, "May God NOT have mercy on your soul."

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Detective Jim O’Brian and FBI Profiler Special Agent Steve Hoffman are hunting for a brutal serial killer; however, this case defies the profiling rules both men have been trained to detect. “The Iron Eagle” appears to only hunt and capture serial killers. Time is of the essence as with each passing day “The Eagle” gets more brazen. The deeper O’Brian and Hoffman dig into profiling the killer, the more they realize that this is more than a race against time – it’s a race laden with the realization that the killer may be one of their own.

From the inside flap:

The city of Los Angeles is no stranger to violence. It has both a colorful and grotesque history with it. Sheriff’s Homicide Detective Jim O’Brian and FBI Profiler Special Agent Steve Hoffman are also no strangers to the violence of the sprawling metropolis, but in the past decade something has changed. There’s a serial killer preying on other serial killers – some known by law enforcement, others well off radar. “The Iron Eagle,” a vigilante, extracts vengeance for the victims of Los Angeles’ serial killers. His methods are meticulous and his killings brutal. With each passing day, “The Iron Eagle” moves with impunity through the streets of Los Angeles in search of his prey. O’Brian and Hoffman create an elite task force with the sole purpose of catching “The Eagle” and bringing him to justice. But the deeper they delve, the more apparent it is that he may very well be one of their own. As the two men stare into the abyss of their search, the eyes of “The Iron Eagle” stare back.

***Content Warning: While the Iron Eagle Series can be read out of order as a stand-alone book the reader should be advised that backgrounds and details of the characters may be confusing if readers choose to do so. The Iron Eagle Crime novel series contains mature subject matter, graphic violence, sexual content, language, torture and other scenes that may be disturbing to sensitive readers. This series is not intended for anyone under the age of eighteen, reader discretion is advised.***
