Ex-professional baseball player Jake Longly adamantly refuses to work for his father, wanting no part of Ray’s PI world. He prefers to hang out at his beachfront bar and chase bikinis along the sugary beaches of Gulf Shores, Alabama. But Ray could be persuasive, so Jake finds himself staking out the home of wealthy Barbara Plummer, a suspected adulteress.

When Jake launches into an investigation of his target’s homicide, he quickly runs afoul of Ukrainian mobster Victor Borkov. Aided by his new girlfriend Nicole Jemison and Tommy “Pancake” Jeffers, his behemoth employee with crazy computer skills, Jake tries to peel away the layers of the crime.

Deputy Samantha Cody finally bagged her man. The jury's verdict: three counts of murder in the first with special circumstances and a recommendation of death by lethal injection. Only Judge Westbrooke's final decree stands between Richard Earl Garrett and death row. After three weeks of an exhausting trial and being haunted by images of the three sacrificially mutilated children, Sam's only wish is to wash her hands of Garrett, whose only defense is "the devil made me do it." Just as the chaos in Mercer's Corner settles down enough for Sam to focus on her dream of entering the world of women's professional boxing, the jury foreman and two members of the jury die under suspicious circumstances. When more murders occur, each with Garrett's signature, a cadre of characters flocks to the tiny California high desert town, from pseudo-Satanic followers to a crazed reverend with his First Church of God disciples. Soon the town is whipped into a lynch-mob frenzy, and Sam's world of hard facts and pragmatism has quickly spun out of control.

Samantha Cody can't stay away from trouble. When Sam's long-time friend, Dr. Lucy Wagner finds her career, and maybe even her life in jeopardy, it's impossible for Samantha not to run to her ex-boxing buddy's side. Dr. Lucy Wagner was on top of her game, her practice thriving, and her reputation impeccable. In addition to being the only cardiac surgeon on staff at the Remington Medical Center in small-town Tennessee, she recently had a new pediatric cardiac unit dedicated to her. Her achievements put her at the apex of the local medical pyramid, but earned her a few powerful enemies. Her success comes to a screeching halt when John Scully, the spiritual founder and leader of a local snake-handling church, dies on her operating table. The series of strange fainting spells and nightmarish dreams that follow are nothing compared to the violent psychotic behaviors Lucy's patients begin exhibiting, and she knows it's time to call in the cavalry. Despite wishing to put her ex-cop days behind her, Samantha Cody must lead Lucy on a journey into the past to confront old and very powerful forces she never knew existed.

Deputy Samantha Cody just won her third professional boxing match and is ready for a stress-free vacation at her friend Alyss Cameron's new B&B in the tiny mountain community of Gold Creek, Colorado. But any hope of relaxation is shattered when Sam stumbles upon a brutal killing and is nearly trampled by a massive, shadowy figure. When two more murders follow, Sam finds herself in the uncomfortable position of being both witness and investigator. Some vacation. Reports of a creature roaming the mountain slopes, terrorizing hikers, and mutilating cattle make Sam wonder if a bear, a man, or even Big Foot is hiding in the hills. But Police Chief Forrest Wade's primary suspect is Billy Wingo, a bear-like mountain man who matches the killer's description. Sam must survive the harsh mountains, deep hard-rock mines, and a conspiracy of greed and corruption long enough to uncover the truth.
