But the case turns deadly when a co-defendant ends up murdered and Grace’s best friend, sheriff’s deputy Suzie Jensen, is nearly killed.
Can Grace track down the elusive Barry Keegan—a man more dangerous than anyone could’ve guessed—while she tries to protect his wife and son from a violent past they thought dead and buried?
A COLD WIND
Drawn into a complex, joint task force investigation, Grace deHaviland, along with her best friend Sheriff’s Deputy Suzie Jensen, find themselves facing off against gunrunners, the U.S. Marshal Service, and the ATF. Squeezed from all sides, they must do what the feds, and even Grace’s occasional lover, BCI agent Eugene Booker, won’t, if they are to find their man before time runs out…for him and for them.
On the trail of a pedophile and out of time before more victims die, sheriff’s deputy Suzie Jensen turns to the only person she knows who can help her locate her perp and a missing girl: Columbus, Ohio’s top bounty hunter, Grace deHaviland.
A MATTER OF JUSTICE
Hired to track down and bring in a call girl on the run, bounty hunter Grace deHaviland soon discovers there’s more to the case than her skip’s odd decision to jump bail, forcing Grace to confront more than one old enemy, and ultimately face the most dangerous adversary of her career—for the second time!
WITH INTENT TO DECEIVE
Rhona Hasen says she didn’t kill her husband. The police say otherwise.
Still, Sheriff’s Deputy Suzie Jensen wants to believe her. Yet her efforts to investigate the murder go awry when Ro skips bail and Grace deHaviland—Columbus, Ohio’s top bounty hunter and Suzie’s best friend—takes the case.
Now pitted against her best friend in a race against time and with a deadly street gang out for blood, can Grace unravel the mystery of Rhona’s husband’s death in time to stop more murders—like Suzie Jensen’s and her own.
