Bounty Hunter John Smoke never liked the rules. As a result of his overly aggressive—and often illegal—arrest methods, he ended up behind bars. But the Bureau won’t let him be. Placed in the able care of beautiful no-nonsense Sidney Shaw, his new FBI handler, Smoke needs to alter his loose-cannon ways to remain a free man.

But there is an unchecked evil festering deep in the heart of the nation’s capital. A shadow conspiracy than won’t be defeated by conventional means. A vast hidden network of criminals with the terrifying ability to shapeshift into monsters is spreading its supernatural sickness in the very fabric of human society.

No ordinary mortal can fight the evil. But, there is nothing ordinary about John Smoke. Sidney Shaw is about to discover for herself as she follows Smoke’s trail into the darkest, most secret corners of Washington, DC. Smoke and Sidney must fight the evil that will stop at nothing to tear them apart while destroying a nation as well.

She didn’t start the fight, but she’ll gladly finish it…

While confirming the elimination of a target during a drone attack, Carrie discovers a massive cover-up. Now a target herself, she’s determined to find out who wants her dead and begins to cut through a complex web of lies and deceit. Even if it means going to war with the CIA. With innocents killed and her own life at stake, how will Carrie survive so that justice is served?

Codename: Makarov – Book Two

She’ll stop at nothing…

Carrie, the fiercest CIS field operative, is in Pakistan for an extremely secretive meeting with one of the local Taliban leaders, when she falls into a suspicious ambush that almost claims her life and suspects a mole inside her own team.

As she starts her search for the traitor, Carrie learns of a ruthless ex-KGB assassin, who may have been implicated in her father’s disappearance in Moscow at the height of the Cold War. When she dives into this inquiry, she soon finds herself at the center of a decade-long intrigue. While trying to balance her feelings and rein in her emotions, Carrie is informed of her ex-partner, Justin Hall, who has gone rogue in the lawless terrorist-infested badlands of Syria and Iraq.

Carrie is determined to dispel the uncertainty about her father’s disappearance and eager to bring Justin, the former love of her life, back home. Alone, she starts her most personal and dangerous mission. Can she settle accounts once for all with the man who killed her father, and the traitor who betrayed her?

Elite operative Carrie O’Connor survived Afghanistan twice and swore she would never go back. Then, a known terrorist mastermind attacks a police station and shockingly turns his gun on his own men. When the smoke clears, he surrenders, but will only speak with Carrie…

Soon after arriving, as Carrie tries to uncover his motive, she discovers a treacherous conspiracy involving the Taliban and the Russians to assassinate the US president. But a cloud of doubt remains: Is the president really the terrorists’ target? Or is he simply a diversion for something more sinister?

Find out how Carrie will have to work both sides of evil to gain an Entry Point…

Book Description:


Fresh off a dynamic career with the CIA, Ellie finally returns home to Southwest Florida to catch up on years lost to the wind. But when news of a horrifying murder shocks her sleepy fishing community, she’s compelled by a deep sense of justice to help track down the killer.

And when an old friend offers her a chance to do it from behind a badge, she goes all in.

Ellie’s investigation gets off to a rapid start, leading her into a hidden underworld of drugs, murder, and lies, where she quickly discovers that some of the locals may not have the cleanest of hands.

Meanwhile, as deep pain continues to linger from the recent death of her father and a gaping hole left by a previous mission gone terribly wrong, Ellie discovers that it’s not so easy to outrun your past.


When a plane loaded with illegal drugs crashes into an iconic pier, the locals begin to wonder if any other secrets are about to fall out of the sky.

After going to Tampa to search out a possible link between Hawkwing Enterprises and the dead body of a young boy, Ellie suddenly becomes entangled with an elusive drug lord and the former Navy SEAL working with him.

On Pine Island, a local and beloved business owner is blackmailed into moving cargo that goes against everything he believes in, bringing his world crashing down around him as he begins to live a sinister lie.


When local Matlacha artist Jean Oglesby confides to Ellie that her son may be in some trouble, Ellie steps in to help and is sent down a winding trail that leads her into deep and unexpected waters.

A Category 4 hurricane has Pine Island in its crosshairs, and as the winds whip the mainland, it forces Ellie to make a choice: flee for safety or stay and hunt down the weapons smugglers that have kidnapped and tortured an innocent man.

And when a friend from the past suddenly appears with unexpected news, she begins to wonder if the truth is even out there and if she will be forced to finally bend the rules.


Ellie has encountered setback after setback, and this time is no different. When a former adversary comes back for revenge, Ellie discovers the crosshairs cover more than she ever could have imagined and locks her into a deadly battle that has already claimed far too many innocent lives.

As she gets ever closer to unmasking the lies running rampant over her community, Ellie finds corruption at the highest levels of government, forcing her to reexamine everything she knew to be true.

In this nail-biting conclusion to an investigation that began in Broken Stern, Ellie’s pursuit of justice takes her to the very threshold of death’s door, and what she finds leading up to it is nothing short of terrifying.
