Special Agent Rainey Bell is on medical leave and has been for over a year, after a horrific attack left her scarred both inside and out. She drinks too much and hasn't had a good night's sleep in months. On a hung-over morning, in June, a request for help from an old friend plunges Rainey back into the world of stalkers, rapist, and serial killers. The next thirteen days will change Rainey's life forever, if she survives. On top of all that, the woman she is supposed to protect brings out feelings Rainey didn't know she had. Thrown together by a bizarre series of events, they learn to depend on each other for survival.
Book #2 – Rainey Nights, (2011) Lambda Literary Award Finalist in Mystery
Women are missing and dying in the Triangle area of North Carolina. One woman holds the key to why.
With the conclusion of the Y-Man murders nine months ago and her resignation from the FBI, Former Special Agent and Behavioral Analyst, Rainey Bell has finally found peace and contentment she never thought possible, even if she remains a bit paranoid. Her wariness is well-founded and justified when a monster from her past rears his demonic head.
Rainey has faced death and evil before—alone. Now, it’s different. She has a family to protect, her own. Only Rainey can keep them alive. Or can she?
As one reviewer said, "Don’t assume you know how this story will end."
