Point Road, home of the wealthy, and Angela Jeffries, the beautiful broken woman Eric Slater has always wanted. Slater returns home from the Navy to discover that his best friends suicide may have been murder, and Angela begs him to investigate. Maggie, the tag-along little sister he barely remembers has grown into a beautiful, strong woman, and she joins him as they follow a trail of murder, and human trafficking, a trail that will eventually turn back to their hometown. A wry, twisted tale of mystery and two people falling in love.
For Harry Watt, Bounty Hunter, simply doing what he’s told was never an option. When the best hydrologist on Earth goes AWOL after first helping himself to some company funds, Judge Headlock, Harry’s employer and nemesis, instructs him to bring back the runaway to face justice.
A trip to Mars onboard one of the new ships with the StrateLine Drive sounds like fun, but Harry soon discovers something stinks about this job, and it’s not one of his socks. He realizes he must first travel to Venus Station, but it’s not easy to be in two places at once. And getting framed for murder doesn’t help matters.
So with the help of his dead partner, an erstwhile assistant, and a host of lady friends, Harry embarks on a rip-roaring ride through the Solar System in a bid to prevent a Martian civil war, and maybe earn a few credits along the way.
British female sleuth, Daisy Dunlop, thinks “heir hunting” is her dream job. Too bad she has to work with her worst nightmare, private investigator Solomon Liffey. They’ve barely spoken since he took her husband’s request to keep her safe far too literally and handcuffed her to the kitchen sink.
Solomon has no interest in babysitting a new partner, especially this one. The woman’s a bleedin’ liability. She has no concept of danger and could flirt for England at the next Olympics. As if that isn’t bad enough, she has a habit of sticking her nose in where it’s not wanted, including into Solomon’s very private life.
Determined to keep Daisy safely out the way, Solomon sets her the task of finding a missing person. Her investigations land her in the middle of his case. Bullets fly, bombs explode, and the number of murder victims keeps rising. When Solomon goes missing, the tables are turned. Now his life is in Daisy’s hands.
