Murder in the Forbidden City

by Amanda Roberts


Peking, 1867

When one of the Empress’s ladies-in-waiting is killed in the Forbidden City, she orders Inspector Gong to find the killer. Unfortunately, as a man, he is forbidden from entering the Inner Court. How is he supposed to solve a murder when he cannot visit the scene of the crime or talk to the women in the victim’s life? He won’t be able to solve this crime alone.

The widowed Lady Li is devastated when she finds out about the murder of her sister-in-law, who was serving as the Empress’s lady-in-waiting. She is determined to discover who killed her, even if it means assisting the rude and obnoxious Inspector Gong and going undercover in the Forbidden City.

Together, will Lady Li and Inspector Gong be able to find the murderer before he – or she – strikes again?

The Karma Code

by Daniel Davidsohn


A man staggers his way through the snow. His final words ignite an international chase that will cross countries, continents, and perhaps even centuries.

After a controversial American researcher is murdered in a remote Finnish village, Boston investigator Harry Walker receives a call from Candice–the victim’s grieving niece. Determined to uncover her uncle’s murderer, Candice finds herself in need of protection from the same forces that led to her uncle’s demise.

In a fight for survival through Finland, Scotland, and the United States, Harry and Candice face the greed of investors and rogue agents, who all want to get their hands on what is being called the Karma Code, an experiment potentially capable of accessing a surviving consciousness and predicting a person’s fate.

Unless Harry and Candice can find someone to trust amid the treachery around them, they–and the Code–are in danger of disappearing for good.
