Book Description
Through swirling dawn fog, they follow the trail of discarded items at their feet: a tube of glittery lip gloss; a cell phone; a cracked make-up compact, broken chunks of ivory powder spilling into the grass. Then the mist parts—just for a second—to reveal a beautiful young girl on the ground, her pale lips frozen forever in a silent scream… On a winding mountain road into the small town of Denton, Pennsylvania, Detective Josie Quinn finds the body of a local teenage girl, Dina Hale. The sight of plum-colored bruises gathering around the girl’s neck pierces Josie’s heart, but the discovery of a second girl’s empty purse in the dirt nearby gives her a flicker of hope that one person, at least, made a lucky escape. Dina’s parents are grief-stricken as the town rallies together in a desperate search for the second girl, Alison Mills, who waitressed with Dina at a local hotel. The two best friends were on their way to a shift when they were attacked. Josie was too late to save Dina, but she won’t rest until Alison is home safe. Hitting a dead-end with interviews, Josie thinks she’s on to something when a photo surfaces suggesting Alison was romantically involved with one of the hotel staff. But when Josie arrives at the man’s house to find a bullet in his head, and the house ransacked, the case comes crashing down. Evidence of frantic searching at both crime scenes has Josie convinced a twisted killer is on a hunt for something very personal and precious. And that they won’t stop until they find it. But how many innocent lives will be destroyed before Josie can uncover the missing piece at the heart of this deadly puzzle? And what sacrifices will she have to make to find Alison alive? An absolutely unputdownable crime thriller from an Amazon, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author. Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Robert Dugoni and Rachel Caine.

Book Description
Dressed in pajamas covered with stars, the little girl’s body is perfectly still, her arms folded neatly over her chest. The wildflowers decorating her hair scatter across the grass in the sharp breeze. Her lips are parted slightly, as if to whisper goodnight for the very last time… When twelve-year-old Holly Mitchell’s fragile little body is found on the steps of a mountainside church in the small town of Denton, a doll made from pine cones clasped tightly to her chest, Detective Josie Quinn rushes to attend the scene. She knows this little girl’s angelic face, her mother had offered Josie help when she’d needed it most. Searching the girl’s house, Josie is devastated to find that Holly’s mother is dead too, and her little sister is missing. But why has this family home been stripped of all sharp objects? Re-tracing her steps, Josie finally finds a secret hiding place with Holly’s sister inside, terrified, but alive. Moments later, another doll made of twigs turns up. Certain the killer is close by, Josie holds the little girl tight and tries to coax answers from her, but it’s clear the pile of burnt photographs and letters found in the greenhouse is her only lead. No one is safe until Josie can figure out the dangerous secret that has escaped this remote family home. Just when Josie is finally closing in on the killer, the unthinkable happens, a tragedy that shakes her to her very core. And on the windshield of her car: a third wooden doll. Could stopping this twisted monster from taking more innocent lives come at the ultimate price for Josie?

Book Description
'A Place for Ferns and Mushrooms' is a mystery/detective novel, narrated by a quasi-legal investigator. The story is designed to convey the lore of tales grown and nurtured in the north woods. Although projected through the metropolitan framework of the San Francisco Bay Area, the story is more narrowly trained on the nuances and background of rural Oregon. Nibbling around the edges of that current American apprehension so recently spawned by multiculturalism, the book's focus is on the unmitigated fear of it all, working on the premise that the militia movement is not so very distantly removed from the recent boom in country and western music, celebrities buying large ranches in Montana, and a growing interest in folk art. The pending collapse of linguistic, ethnic and national borders, has forced people, with no reason to have previously questioned, to seek their cultural and ethnic heritage, a search often prompted by a sense of having misplaced something, or a need to define personal identity. An unanticipated result of reaching for those expatriated Americans, is a subsequent connection to that fringe intellectual segment of American culture, who look fondly back on the 1960s and who once read J.R.R. Tolkien, but have sadly acquired too much knowledge to any longer connect with Bilbo Baggins, and who sometimes reminisce across the wistful background of bluegrass music without projecting that neither the music nor this book could have developed anywhere else in time or place. This collective American identity crisis, personified by baby boomers raised on Dr. Spock and always urged to find themselves, has not been reflected in popular literature, except perhaps for a revised interest in nostalgic periodicals, such as The Western Horseman and Boots and Saddle, until now. A strong sense of cultural identity, along with a warm feeling of camaraderie, is advanced throughout this narrative, which is woven together through a story line of a mystery laced with understated humor. 'A Place for Ferns and Mushrooms' is a book designed to contrast relationships; relationships between urban and rural, past and present, hard/cold and warm/fuzzy, while accentuating the contrast between high-tech-international and home-spun-real.
