Book One in the Tanith's Secret quartet On a dark night, in the ancient European city of Luxembourg, a tragic accident results in fifteen-year-old Tanith losing her home and being wrongly labeled as a criminal. She seeks a new start in unfamiliar England, but trouble still follows her. Nevertheless, she has the skills she needs to survive. "You have a rare talent," a police karate instructor tells her. And Tanith can also sometimes see things that others cannot. Things from the past perhaps? They Kill Bears describes a real and dangerous world, where genuine martial arts skills and the ability to overcome fear, mean an exceptional girl who knows her limits (and walks with a giant white dog called Nicely, that stops traffic and enemies in equal numbers!) can even the odds. Professional dog fighters, police officers, soccer hooligans, sadistic school bullies, Japanese gangsters, and even the anonymous group that has been watching Tanith from the shadows since she left her home, discover this for themselves, as you can, when you visit the world of Tanith and Nicely in this, the first novel in a series of four that eventually unfold the shocking truth behind Tanith's 'Secret'. "You're very brave, Tanith, but these are relentless men they'll come back, again and again." Tanith continued to look Derek right in the eye. -in a way that made the teacher rock back on his chair. "We met them before, Nicely and I. We will meet them again, whenever they like, wherever they like..." Tanith lowered her voice to a whisper. "Let them come."

Men disappear around Blue Mesa, New Mexico. Dick Young, apparently an easy-going artist, vanishes close to a deep chasm in this locality ruled by powerful rancher Walt Guisewell who sees the land he has tamed as his 'kingdom'. Bob Young, brother of the missing man, arrives and proves very different from Dick. Sometime soldier; sometime convict and sometime lawman, he wears the holster of his Colt revolver tied down by a rawhide thong - the mark of a gunfighter with a reputation and not one to be trifled with. Looking for answers to his brother's disappearance, he finds that others have disappeared and is soon head-to-head in a bullet-bitten conflict with rancher Guisewell and his crew.
