A well-seasoned sixty-nine, Sheriff Bill Gastner knows his Posadas, New Mexico, territory as well as he understands the foibles of the human condition. So when a backhoe crushes a man to death, it’s more instinct than fact that leaves him feeling there’s more to this “accident” than meets the eye. Adding to his problems, anonymous letters charging his best deputy, Tom Pasquale, with hustling Mexican nationals for cash are being dispatched around town. Gastner takes this one personally; he’s fond of his deputy, but he does want the truth. He also knows it’s an election year and dirty politics can happen anywhere. So can murder. Soon he’s got not just one, but two dead bodies. And a strong desire to make sure that when he does retire, it’s not by way of a well-aimed bullet....

He stood in the doorway to the kitchen, his arms above his head, his long, bony fingers curled like claws. His teeth were bared in a horrible fixed grin, his eyes stared unblinkingly. Two thin wires suspended each of his thumbs to a corner of the door frame … mute evidence that his death had neither been quick or merciful.

Sam Falkirk, Captain of the World Police and stationed at the World Council building in New York, has a special interest in investigating the sudden and inexplicable death of Angelo Augustine, the brother of his girl friend. A messenger employed by the Council, Augustine was also a spy in the pay of Senator Rayburn, a fanatical Nationalist who is fighting both to retain his power and to destroy the Orient before they, as he believes, turn against the Occident. Augustine had died while delivering a parcel containing a statue of a Buddha for an employee of Senator Sucamari of the Japanese Legation, and who, in his own way, is as fanatical as Rayburn himself. Sucamari wants to gain living room for the teeming millions of the Orient, and his secret plan involves the releasing of a deadly bacterial plague across the Americas. The bacteria is contained in a special coating on the Buddha statue, but when the statue is stolen by a petty criminal, millions of people hover on the brink of agonizing death, unless Falkirk can find the criminal in time . . .

When Pauline Sokol goes undercover to investigate fraud at a weight loss clinic, resisting chocolate is her biggest dilemma . . . until she encounters a murder. Pauline Sokol, ex-RN turned medical insurance–fraud investigator, finds herself embroiled in a scam at a weight loss clinic in the scenic New Mexico desert.

It seems to be an open-and-shut case, but Pauline isn’t the only undercover investigator on the scene. And when a reporter turns up dead, it’s up to Pauline to solve the case—with a little help from her handsome, but incorrigible, colleague, Jagger.

DCI Neil Paget and his indefatigable team are stymied by an increasingly murky investigation that may not even be a criminal case. High-flying English Member of Parliament Stephen Lorrimer and his wife Julia are the parents of a bright five-year-old son, Michael, who has severe hearing and speech impediments. Michael is devoted to his caretaker Justine, and when she disappears he is inconsolable. Julia is quick to report to DCI Neil Paget the girl’s failure to return after leaving the house for Sunday service. Paget and his team try to piece together her movements but find little hard evidence to suggest any criminal activity. And with little in the way of witnesses, Paget and his team begin to wonder if they have a case at all. Only persistence, intuition, and a little bit of luck might solve a most perplexing state of affairs. “A brisk and unusual puzzler.” —Kirkus Reviews
