No one is coming to your aid. We have ensured this. Six strangers wake up on a remote island in the Florida Keys with no memory of their arrival. They soon discover their common bond: all of them are heroin addicts. As the first excruciating pangs of withdrawal make themselves felt, the six notice a yacht anchored across open water. On it lurk four shadowy figures, protected by the hungry sharks that patrol the waves. So begins a dangerous game. The six must undertake the impossible—swim to the next island where a cache of heroin awaits, or die trying. When alliances form, betrayal is inevitable. As the fight to survive intensifies, the stakes reach terrifying heights—and their captors’ motives finally begin to emerge.

Minneapolis detectives Leo Magozzi and Gino Rolseth are bored - ever since they solved the Monkeewrench case, the Twin Cities have been in a murder-free dry spell, as people no longer seem interested in killing one another. But with two brutal homicides taking place in one awful night, the crime drought ends - not with a trickle, but with an eventual torrent. Who would kill Morey Gilbert, a man without an enemy, a man who might as well have been a saint? His tiny, cranky little wife, Lily, is no help, and may even be a suspect; his estranged son, Jack, an infamous ambulance-chasing lawyer, has his own enemies; and his son-in-law, former cop Marty Pullman, is so depressed over his wife's death a year ago that he's ready to kill himself, but not Morey. The number of victims - all elderly - grows, and the city is fearful once again." The detectives' investigation threatens to uncover a series of horrendous secrets, some buried within the heart of the police department itself, blurring the lines between heroes and villains. Grace MacBride's cold-case-solving software may find the missing link - but at a terrible price.

In the next thrilling Duty & Honor novel, a female CIA agent and a Delta Force soldier must catch a deadly assassin… but do they know where the danger truly lies? After several assassination attempts on an allied royal, the CIA sends in operative Christina Madison—who bears a striking resemblance to the monarch—to pose as the famous princess and draw out her would-be killer. When Delta Force Lieutenant Gabriel Morgan's team is assigned to Christina's undercover protection detail, he's less than thrilled. Gabe wants nothing to do with a woman whose rumored screw-up nearly got her last team killed. Not to mention there's bad blood between Gabe and the CIA—he doesn't trust anyone who lies for a living. But once the trap is set and the assassin takes the bait, Gabe must protect her with his life … because danger lurks in the shadows, and now Christina is in the crosshairs.

Dragon Bait is book II in a trilogy, three linked and contiguous novels which feature the same common primary characters and venues throughout a continuing story. Use of “fl ash-back” or back story reversions to earlier times/ places is common, allowing introduction of relevant but minor swatches of information and perspective. Book I, Involuntary Tour, published in 2009, was set in Bad Aibling, Germany, in 1968, Viet Nam in 1964-65, and briefl y the U.S. in 1965-66. Dragon Bait, more ambitious, is set in Bad Aibling, again in 1968; the U.S. in short segments over several periods; Asmara, Eritrea (Ethiopia) in 1960-62; Rothwesten and Gartow, Germany, in 1966-67; and Viet Nam in 1968. Book III, Falloff , projected for publication in mid-2011, is set almost entirely in Viet Nam, multiple locations, in 1969. Th ough each book stands alone as a novel, the entire story demands the range of the full trilogy.

It's been years, since radical lesbian Jax Madigan had much contact with her conservative family. Her independence long ago ruled out peaceful co-existence with her relatives. Her only steady contact with her past is with her brother, Danny, who keeps in touch, despite his objection to her "lifestyle choices." But when Danny meets and brings home the woman of his dreams, Jax finds herself once more drawn into a family dynamic that is both rewarding and punishing, and even after all these years, intimately familiar. Danny's girl, Jenn, is beautiful, poised, articulate, and eager to spend time with the black sheep of the family. And it only takes a few visits to reveal she's as attracted to both Jax and Danny, as they are to her. Bait explores the limits of love and loyalty, sibling rivalry and tempting taboo. In a volatile mix of wit and wantonness, brother and sister, parents and children, in-laws and outlaws, must all decide how far they will go, to save someone's soul.
