Two Englishmen have dreams of setting up a business in the sun, but trouble follows them.

Their first brush with death came at Bangkok’s airport on Nick’s first day in the Kingdom.

Action, laughs, romance and tears follow as the story moves at a breathtaking pace. 

Violence and tender moments collide as the gullible pair meet a dodgy ship’s engineer, two lovely French girls more interested in dogs than romance, and a tall Welsh man, with a very chequered drug background who leads them all into more trouble. The last person they need to encounter is a lesbian newspaper reporter with a deadly family secret. 

The tale unfolds into an action-packed finale.

LA’s Deadliest Private Eye on the trail of a 100 million dollar fortune for which many will kill, some will die. Her most lucrative case—or her most deadly?

When Maddie Al Fulani’s husband, Isa, abandons her without warning, explanation, or a single dollar in the bank, naturally, Maddie turns to Angel Fortune, LA’s most infamous and deadly Private Investigator. Ex-LAPD turned P.I., Angel’s motto is: SHOOT FIRST, ASK QUESTIONS LATER.

To Angel, Maddie Al-Fulani has it all. She’s gorgeous, lives in a multi-million dollar mansion in the Hollywood Hills, drives a Bentley, a Jag, has a handsome bodyguard-driver, and a husband who is one of LA’s most popular and notorious cosmetic surgeons whose star-studded client list includes royalty, politicians, and Hollywood stars.

Offered a twenty million dollar finder’s fee to recover Isa’s missing hundred million dollar fortune, Angel and her partner Rosie at Avenging Angel Private Investigations happily accept the most lucrative case of their career.

But after a series of unexpectedly violent turns, Angel questions both her judgment and the truthfulness of her client’s story. Could the case of the missing millions also become Angel’s most deadly?

The investigation soon draws Angel deep into a shadowy underworld of international terrorists and money launderers, blackmailers and rock stars, killers and kidnappers all chasing after a fortune for which each is willing to kill. Trusting no one, Angel follows the money down a twisting path that could leave Angel, Maddie, or both women, dead.

Detective Shelby Griffin is sworn to serve and protect the city of Los Angeles. That doesn’t mean that she has to like it.

Actually, Shelby hates LA, and she can’t wait to get out of here and return to her hometown in Rhode Island. For now, though, she needs this job, and she works the streets every day with her partner Trevor Morris. There’s no shortage of cases, either. Shelby’s neighborhood is on the very brink of an all-out gang war, and it’ll take just one spark to light the tinder-dry atmosphere. That spark comes in the form of a dead gangster who might just prove to be the catalyst for a gang war that could kill hundreds and cause devastating collateral damage. Or does it?

When Shelby discovers that the murder is not what it seems, she’s determined to find the real killer, but a kidnapping turns the whole case on its head. The murder Shelby is investigating has led to a terrible choice. Either way, people die. And if she doesn’t find the killer and stop him, those people could include Morris. The vigilante roaming the streets makes life even more complicated for LA’s most reluctant detective as she fights back in this fast-paced first installment of a five-book series.
