Harry Blue is the top sex crimes investigator in her department. She's a seasoned pro who's seen it all. But even she didn't see this coming: her own brother arrested for the grisly murders of three beautiful young women. Harry's been sent to a makeshift town in a desolate landscape - a world full of easy money, plenty of illegal ways to spend it, and a ragtag collection of transient characters who thrive on the fringes of society.

On his last combat deployment, Lt. Cmdr. James Reece's entire team was killed in an ambush that also claimed the lives of the aircrew sent in to rescue them. But when those dearest to him are murdered on the day of his homecoming, Reece discovers that this was not an act of war by a foreign enemy but a conspiracy that runs to the highest levels of government. Now, with no family and free from the military's command structure, Reece applies the lessons that he's learned in over a decade of constant warfare toward revenge.

The heartbreak and dashed hopes were supposed to stop hurting when Deidre "Drey" Hunter left Hawk Cahill in the past and married someone else. But when her husband vanishes on their wedding night, leaving her in an eerie Victorian mansion, the fairy tale becomes a horror story. Only, this is real, and someone wants Drey dead. Hawk knows ranching, not personal protection - until he realizes Drey is at risk. No one can safeguard her...or love her...the way he can. The past is a ghost they can't escape, but with a killer hungry to silence them both, will they get the chance to try?

It was a typical evening at a mall outside Portland, Maine. Three teenage friends waited for the movie to start. A boy flirted with the girl selling sunglasses. Then the shooters arrived. The chaos and carnage lasted only eight minutes before the killers were taken down. But one person wasn't satisfied with the shockingly high death toll at the DownEast Mall. And as the survivors slowly heal, find shelter, and rebuild, they will discover that another conspirator is lying in wait - and this time, there might be nowhere safe to hide.

Half Apache and all man, Jake Redman was more than a match for the wild Arizona Territory. Sarah Conway, on the other hand, was an Eastern lady who belonged anywhere else but on the rugged land Jake loved. But beneath Sarah's ladylike demeanor beat the heart of a true pioneer, a woman he yearned to make his own.

We love this writer. This book is so different than most of Nora's books, that my wife and I questioned a western.
This is one of the best books we have listened to in years.

She used to work for the US government, but very few people ever knew that. An expert in her field, she was one of the darkest secrets of an agency so clandestine it doesn't even have a name. And when they decided she was a liability, they came for her without warning. Now she rarely stays in the same place or uses the same name for long. They've killed the only other person she trusted, but something she knows still poses a threat. They want her dead, and soon.

This book s among the best books I have listened to.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot for this book is top notch. The book is one you don't want to quit listening to. The narrator does an excellent job.

Which scene was your favorite?

There was a lot of them. I guess the rescue in the deserted CIA office was one, I'll remember

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I really enjoyed every part of this book. I look forward to listening to it again.

Any additional comments?

I'm not into Dracula based books, so I'm a little upset this is the only book of this author has written. I'm not a syfi fan.

John Puller's mother disappeared nearly 30 years ago. Despite an intensive search and investigation, she was never seen again. But new allegations have come to light suggesting that Puller's father - now suffering from dementia and living in a VA hospital - may have murdered his wife. Puller is officially barred from working on the case and faces a potential court-martial if he disobeys the order, but he knows he can't sit this investigation out.
