The NightShade Forensic Files book 3

Reg. Price: 3.99

When Eleri wished for a different kind of case, she hadn’t expected to get something this different.

An odd human skeleton found in Michigan’s Manistee-Huron National Forest has triggered a NightShade investigation. When Eleri and Donovan arrive, the skeleton they’ve been sent to find isn’t there. But two others are, each displaying different anomalies that raise alarming questions for the pair of FBI “special” investigators.

The skeletons aren’t from the area or probably even the continent. A decades-old abandoned building doesn’t register on satellite images, files detailing genetic experiments on children, and strange people in the woods only further confuse the case. In fact, there’s no record of the Axis building or the children there in any state or federal documents.

Who were the test subjects and where are the people still unaccounted for? The two NightShade agents believe there are others out there who haven’t died yet. But they will, if something isn’t done. Fast.

If the case itself wasn’t enough of a problem, someone is watching. Someone with a particular interest in Donovan’s own skeletal anomalies . . .

 The NightShade Forensic Files book 2

Eleri and Donovan are back!

NightShade’s newest agents are in L.A. to bring down a burgeoning terrorist cell. To make things worse, it’s not just one terrorist cell, it’s two. Or is it three?

There is little to go on, only links between missing Army munitions and a veteran named Cooper Rollins. With his special ops training and severe PTSD, it’s impossible to tell what kind of game Rollins is playing.

Eleri and Donovan will have to use their unique skills to stop the attack before it happens. But in the crowded city, there are too many people who might reveal what Donovan is if he dares to make the change. And Eleri is starting to show signs of powers she didn’t know she had, and can’t control.

On the surface the cells seem unrelated, each with separate perpetrators and different motives. But they are all linked by Rollins and the very disturbing passcode:

“Fracture Five.”

In NightShade nothing is as it seems . . .

Eleri Eames didn’t think she’d ever be allowed to work for the FBI again, so the special FBI division of NightShade seems like an amazing opportunity. But all too soon, her chance to start over starts to disturb her.

Thrown together on their first case, Eleri and Donovan must deal with a charismatic cult leader and his true-believers. The cult is mixed up with several decade-old kidnapping cases and the missing daughter of a prominent FBI Agent. As Eleri and Donovan dig deeper, they discover that NightShade’s mysteries aren’t coincidence.

Their secrets will save them . . . or destroy them.

Nine years ago, Claymore Beller tried to do the right thing. It was the last thing he did. In retaliation for his efforts, his mafia bosses laid waste to his family. Only the youngest – Cynthia – came up fighting.

Three years ago, Lee Maxwell made the same error. His wife and daughter paid for his mistake. In a haze of booze and regret, Lee disappeared.

Now, Owen Dunham is following the trail of the ‘Grudge Ninja’ – only all the evidence is false and the profilers can’t get their heads around anything except the obvious fact that the Ninja is extracting a deadly revenge for an old wrong.

As the Ninja gets bolder and far more dangerous, Owen is forced to recognize that he hasn’t always made the best decisions – he’s spent far too much time trying to be right. Even as he questions whether bringing in the ninja is the right thing to do, the voice in the back of his head is telling him it will make his career . . .
