Scratched Off

Failure means more people die.

“The Big One” could make Sam’s career or … break him.

FBI Special Agent Samuel Kerman has been tasked to catch a wildly erratic serial killer dropping bodies in Pennsylvania state parks.

The victims differ, and the manner of murder changes every time. Amid the mountains of physical evidence, only a mysterious gray dust and declarations of guilt or innocence link the crimes.

It’s not much to work with, and the case drags on for months. Then, things go from bad to worse when the killer makes it personal. Family, friends, strangers … everybody’s in danger of being scratched off.

After her Shadow Council adventures and misadventures, Megan goes on vacation ...


Eagle Eyes 1: Violence in Vegas

Sin City holds some dark secrets...

But Megan Luchek’s in town to help Angela Melkin-Pierce with a small case of sabotage. Somebody’s been slashing guests’ tires and ransacking rooms at The Grand Game Hotel. With the guest list including the Reno Birdwatcher’s Society and the Paradise Quilting Club, the suspect list is very thin. The only intriguing option is Gatton Technologies, headed by eccentric billionaire, Jeffrey Gatton. When he decides to host a masquerade party at the hotel, Marcella goes undercover.

The air of elegance quickly turns to terror when masked men kidnap Gatton and Angela.

Megan’s going to need all of her wits—and a borrowed handgun or two—if she wants to survive the violence in Vegas.

Eagle Eyes 2: Rescue in Reno

The Biggest Little City might be the death of her …

FBI Special Agent Megan Luchek is still officially on vacation in Las Vegas, but the previous night’s violence has made her aware of the crimes against humanity going on in the tunnels. Before she can investigate too hard, the bad guys get proactive. They kidnap Anthony Pierce, the husband of Megan’s good friend, and warn her to back off.

Predictably, she doesn’t react well to the threat. Megan has several problems, including the fact that she’s being watched in Vegas while she really needs to be up in Reno if she wants to help Anthony.

Much as she likes her independence, Megan’s going to need some high tech and highly skilled allies if she wants to pull off a rescue in Reno.

*Note: the events in this story follow Violence in Vegas. It’s highly recommended that you start your journey there. Also, a variant of this story was previously published as a Kindle Worlds novella.


Never Again

The breakup was just the beginning …

When college junior Alana Adams catches her boyfriend passionately kissing another woman, she promptly dumps Nathan and turns to her best friend, Joseph, for advice and emotional support.

At first, Nathan apologizes and showers Alana with gifts in an effort to win her back. He tries to get her to see they belong together, but when his efforts fail, he concludes the real problem in their relationship must be her best friend.

As Alana’s rejection further sinks in, Nathan realizes there’s only one solution to their problem: kill Joseph Palmer.
