The Saint of Baghdad

by Michael Woodman

As tough as Reacher and as smart as Bourne, CJ Brink is a broken hero who comes back from the dead with one thing on his mind—retribution.

A special forces veteran turned VIP bodyguard, CJ has seen it all. But nothing could have prepared him for the ambush in Iraq that left everyone else dead and CJ in a coma.

Eight years later he resurfaces, damaged but determined, and he wants answers. Someone set them up, but who? The only person who may know is Enya, the sister of the man he was hired to protect. She’s stuck by him throughout his recovery, but like every other player in this dangerous game, she has her own agenda. And the more questions he asks, the bigger the target on his back.

One thing is clear. Someone is afraid of what he knows, and they want him dead. The answers are buried somewhere in his own hazy memory. But can he uncover them before he’s the one buried?

by Juliet Moore

Miami homicide detective Elizabeth Stratton knows she’s lucky to still have a job, but she’s tired of only getting the easy cases. She’ll never be able to regain the respect of her colleagues without a chance to prove she’s no longer an anxious mess who shoots at anything that moves.

Her opportunity comes during a routine check at a near-abandoned hotel. While trying to save the living, she finds the dead. In the midst of a bee infestation is the body of a young woman, her mouth filled with honey.

Elizabeth is grudgingly allowed to keep the case, which rapidly becomes compelling when the honey is found to be poisonous and the bees follow her home.

But just when she’s closing in on the killer, he targets her new friend and Elizabeth must brave the high winds of a category four hurricane to save her.

The Skinner Box

by Juliet Moore

When Detective Elizabeth Stratton and her partner, James, are called to investigate a suspicious death at a psychiatric hospital, they are unnerved by how someone could be killed with no witnesses in a place under constant supervision. Before they can even try to figure out who did it, they need to figure out how.

But it’s hard to interview suspects when at least half of them have diagnosed mental illnesses. Elizabeth must discover what life is like in this dark place and what has brought its inmates to its cold confines. It’s enough to lead anyone to murder.

With her colleagues’ sometimes unwanted help, Elizabeth begins to unravel a multi-layered tale of abuse and immorality. Then she discovers a truth far more disturbing than she ever expected. There’s gruesome . . . and then there’s just plain sick.
