A Tooth for a Tooth, Hunter's Moon, & Hawke's War


Lennox Armbruster was struck by a speeding vehicle-but was it an accident or an insurance scam gone wrong? Roy Ballard is hired to find out, and he soon learns there's a third possibility: attempted murder. Joe Jankowski, the man who hit Armbruster, is a tough-talking player in the construction industry, and a feud with one of his former employees has shown that he has a temper to match his brash personality. When Roy and his partner Mia Madison attempt to dig deeper, they learn just how far Jankowski will go to shut down their investigation.


When a black helicopter lands beside Hunter Kincaid at the murder scene of a CIA Agent, and billionaire Presidential Advisor Lincoln Jones clashes with her, she should have known things would go awry. The female Border Patrol Agent is drawn into a whirlwind of armed drones, cartel violence, Top Secret CIA missions, treachery, and an international terrorist who surfaces after twenty years of hiding, intent on destruction. As the situation becomes increasingly intense and violence escalates, Hunter receives unexpected help from three teenage boys and a former nemesis. The efforts are partially successful, but also put Hunter in the crosshairs. Five Sinaloa sicarios are coming for her with one mission: Hunt down Kincaid and end her.


"The most riveting thriller all year " -John Gilstrap on Hawke's Prey

The serene beauty of West Texas's Big Bend National Park is shattered when four hikers are brutally ambushed by a sniper. Only one survives to report the murders. When investigators come up with nothing, they're left wondering if this is a single incident--or the beginning of a rampage. One week later, Texas Ranger Sonny Hawke drives his 3500 Dodge Dually into the park, determined to unearth the truth . . .

Before he knows it, he's in the same sniper's crosshairs. The drug and human smuggling cartel known as the Coyotes Rabiosos--Rabid Coyotes--have lured him to remote backcountry, looking for payback for an old grudge. Wounded and stranded in the harsh desert terrain, hunted, and outnumbered, Sonny is about to become the target of an even more dangerous enemy--one whose thirst for revenge could incite an international conflict far beyond the U.S.-Mexican border . . .
