Fuzzy Navel – A Thriller (Jacqueline “Jack” Daniels Mysteries Book 5)

Things are going well for Lieutenant Jacqueline “Jack” Daniels of the Chicago Police Department. She has solved some of the city’s toughest and most high-profile homicides. Her personal life is finally in order. Her friends and family are safe and happy. And she just got a call that eased her mind like nothing else could: Alex Kork, one of the most dangerous criminals Jack ever arrested, killed herself while in jail.

But things sour quickly when a group of vigilantes on a murderous spree decide to take down a cop and the people she cares about … and they turn downright awful when Jack discovers that Kork may not be dead after all.

Trapped in her house with a psycho and everyone she cares about, and unable to leave because she’s surrounded by snipers, the next eight hours will be the worst of Jack’s life. And that’s saying something.

Fuzzy Navel is Jack’s fifth adventure, perfect for readers who like their mysteries with a shot of humor.

Tourist Trap (Rebecca Schwartz Mystery #3 : A Humorous San Francisco Cozy)
4 stars in 110 reviews

So what’s a nice Jewish girl doing at an Easter sunrise service?

Lawyer Rebecca Schwartz would pick the one with the body nailed to the landmark cross! Coincidence? Not so much. She’s there because her boy friend’s covering the service for the San Francisco Chronicle. The body’s there because someone’s making a statement he doesn’t want the press to miss.

Next: mass shellfish poisoning at Pier 39. A very different kind of serial killer is operating here—one who seems to have a grudge against the whole city.

And this is a very different kind of serial killer tale—a funny one. (If your don’t count the murders, or course.) Rebecca’s warm and witty, never takes herself too seriously, and on one occasion offers closing testimony with green hair. A highly embarrassing moment, but the bright chartreuse is all in the service of making her case.

No way does she believe her client would nail somebody—especially to a cross. And the things she has to do to prove it are hilarious and often unorthodox, yet always professional. Sometimes hyper-professional–the average lawyer simply can’t be bothered spraying herself with Thunderbird to fit in with her witnesses!

A wild ride through Baghdad by the Bay…and a great courtroom drama.

The Forgotten Girl
4 stars in 48 reviews

Twenty-one year-old Maddie Asherford is haunted by a past she can’t remember. When she was fifteen years old, there was a tragic accident and she was left with amnesia.

In the aftermath, Maddie’s left struggling with who she is—the forgotten girl she was six years ago or the Maddie she is now. Sometimes it even feels like she might be two different people completely—the good Maddie and the bad one.

Good Maddie goes to therapy, spends time with her family, and works on healing herself. Bad Maddie rebels and has dark thoughts of hurting people and sometimes even killing them.

Maddie manages to keep her twisted thoughts hidden for the most part. That is until she starts having blackouts. Each time she wakes up from one, she’s near a murder scene with no recollection of what happened the night before and this helpless feeling like she’s losing control of her life. Maddie doesn’t want to believe she’s a killer, but she begins to question who she really was in her past. If she was bad Maddie all along and that maybe she was a killer.

Incriminating Evidence (Mike Daley/Rosie Fernandez Legal Thriller, Book 2)
4.5 stars in 148 reviews

** INCRIMINATING EVIDENCE is BOOK 2 of 7 in the legal thriller series featuring Mike Daley & Rosie Fernandez. **

With his terrific first novel, Special Circumstances, Sheldon Siegel delivered legal fiction so exciting, it drew comparisons with the very top tier of courtroom thrillers. Now he has a new challenge for defense attorney Mike Daley–ex-priest, ex-husband, ex-public defender–and it’s a high-profile zinger: a case he doesn’t think he can win for a client he can’t stand.

It starts with a phone call Mike Daley never expected to get, from District Attorney Prentice Marshall Gates III, San Francisco’s chief law enforcement officer and front-runner candidate for California attorney general. Friends they’re not, but Gates needs Daley now–badly. He’s just been arrested. A couple of hours earlier he woke up in his hotel room and found the dead body of a young male prostitute in the bed. Prosecutors are already talking the death penalty, and there’s nothing in the mounting evidence to convince Daley and his partner–and ex-wife–Rosie of Gates’s innocence. But even if he’s lying, it’s their job to defend him.

Sure enough, the deeper Mike and Rosie dig, the seamier their findings. From a shady Internet entrepreneur who trades flesh for cash to a prominent businessman who uses muscle to keep his enterprise prospering, Mike and Rosie chase down leads that take them from the depths of the Mission District, where drugs and bodies are always for sale, to the gated mansions of Pacific Heights, frantically trying to piece together the shocking truth of what actually happened, even as the trial itself is under way.

Prisoners of the Williwaw
4.5 stars in 23 reviews

Frank Villa has everything he asked for. He wrote a book proposing that the government give him and other convicts an abandoned island in the Aleutians. Let their families accompany them, with no more welfare checks, and no more three squares and a cot. They’re on their own. The government saves millions and Frank gets his freedom, except for the Coast Guard keeping them all on the island.

The native Aleuts know the Aleutians better. A fierce wind, called a Williwaw, roams the islands, tearing down the works of man. Now Williwaw is trying to drive Frank off the island with rain and snow eighty-five percent of the time. And this god gets a lot of help from Boss Gilmore, another convict, who’s eager to pocket whatever money the men have. Gilmore opens a bar and a house of prostitution, he sells drugs and weapons.

Convicts hate cops, but that’s exactly what Frank needs – a cop, law and order. If he fails, it’s back to prison for the rest of his life.

The Line (Shadow Warriors Book 2)
4 stars in 41 reviews

They killed Patton when he opposed them. They’ve cowered Presidents into going to war. For more than half a century, a secret organization of Army officers known as The Line has been covertly manipulating US Policy. Now, in a political climate rife with dissent and unrest, The Line has ordered a pivotal top-secret operation that will let the world know who is really in charge: take out the President on Pearl Harbor Day. But The Line didn’t count on Boomer Watson, a member of the Army’s elite Delta Force and Major Benita Trace, both West Point graduates, staying true to their oath of allegiance and willing to fight The Line with their lives.

From The Ukraine to Pearl Harbor to West Point to the Army-Navy game in Philadelphia, it’s a race against time to stop The Line as December 7th looms.

Written by a West Point graduate, former Green Beret and NY Times Bestselling author, this book crackles with authenticity and action.
