Narco Moolah: A Cleo Matts Novel


Book description: 

A heinous terrorist attack in Honolulu cuts vacation short for burned-out Trapdoor agent Cleo Matts. With the streets of Waikiki in chaos and his own agency compromised, Matts turns fugitive. Wanted dead or alive by the police, the Japanese mafia, the CIA, and Trapdoor, Matts finds an unlikely ally in Sid Bidwell, the mysterious leader of Unit R—an international clique of anarchist computer hackers.
With Bidwell’s help, Matts resolves to take down the elite powerbrokers in the fascist Ministry of Streunberg who are proceeding with a ruthless scheme to rescue the teetering empires of corrupt Wall Street billionaires—a plan that will leave urban centers decimated and lay waste to a generation of Americans.
Determined to derail the impending cataclysm, Matts journeys from Honolulu to Basra and Istanbul, plunging headlong into a global web of opium lords, CIA cleaners, billionaire media moguls, psychic spies, and Islamic militants

In the Blood (A Genealogical Crime Mystery #1)

In the Blood: A Genealogical Crime Mystery #1


Book DESCRIPTION:
Family history was never supposed to be like this...When American genealogist, Jefferson Tayte, accepted his latest assignment he had no idea it might kill him. But while murder was never part of the curriculum he is kidding himself if he thinks he can walk away from this one.
Why can't I trace them?  What happened to them?
Driven by the irony of being a genealogist who doesn't know who his own parents are, Tayte soon finds that the assignment shares a stark similarity to his own struggle. Someone has gone to great lengths to erase an entire family bloodline from recorded history and he's not going home until he's found out why. After all, if he's not good enough to find this family, how can he ever expect to be good enough to someday find his own?

Set in Cornwall, England, past and present, Tayte's research centres around the tragic life of a young Cornish girl, a writing box, and the discovery of a dark family secret that he believes will lead him to the family he is looking for. Trouble is, someone else is looking for the same answers and they will stop at nothing to find them.

Her stepsister Ella is the most beautiful, popular girl in school and is dating Mattie’s secret longtime crush, Jake Kingston.
Tired of being left out and done with waiting for her own stupid fairy godmother to show up, Mattie decides to change her life. She’ll start by running for senior class president against wildly popular Jake. 
Ella can keep her Prince Annoying. Mattie’s going to rule the school.
And no one, not even a cute and suddenly flirty Jake, is going to stop her.
