The Red Scarf: The Kate Brady Series (Book Two) (Paperback)
The dramatic historical crime drama of Kate Brady continues as she joins the FBI, falls in love with an agent and goes undercover to bring down a major crime family. Jewish mafia godfather Ben Gold is dead and the file is closed as far as law enforcement is concerned. His widow is attending college and living on the millions of dollars of ill-gotten gain that Ben had left her, and trying to put the life of a moll behind her. But once again, even from beyond the grave, Ben Gold drags her back into the dangerous world of gangster and guns. When handsome FBI agent Adam Fairchild is introduced as a guest lecturer, she feels immediately drawn to him, and he to her. A steamy love affair ensues and soon she risks her life by revealing her darkest secret to him. He too reveals a secret, and together they hatch a plan for her to infiltrate the dark and cavernous world of the Levine crime family and somehow bring them all to justice. She meets with J. Edgar Hoover, gets her orders, takes an oath, and embarks on a brave and danger-filled journey teeming with suspense and close calls throughout. Along the way she discovers that she is a strong and capable woman who earns the trust of the bad guys and the respect of the law enforcement officials.
