The NATO mission in Bosnia is to broker peace between warring factions and help restore a devastated county. It's a mission the world is watching.

But when Master Sergeant Lauren Harper makes a gruesome discovery, she has a new mission. Saving herself.

Harper, a career soldier, is innocent of the crime she is accused of, but she's guilty of a lot of other things, like inappropriate feelings for her commanding officer, Colonel Neil McCallen and failing to lead a soldier who needed her help.

To get out of the mess she's in, Harper must employ all of her wits and the help of an unexpected friend from across the pond, Sergeant Major Harry Fogg.

Her mistakes land Harper in the worst trouble she's ever faced. She is forced to choose. Save herself and risk the lives of others, or stay, and face a life of degradation and slavery.

About the Author:

M. L. Doyle has served in the U.S. Army at home and abroad for more than two decades as both a soldier and civilian. A Minneapolis native, Mary currently lives in Baltimore, Maryland.

The first book in the Master Sergeant Harper mystery series, The Peacekeeper's Photograph, takes place in a small Army outpost during the Bosnian Peacekeeping mission. The Peacekeeper's Photograph, was the winner of the Carey McCray Memorial Literary Award for best novel from the South Carolina Writer's Workshop. The Sapper's Plot, the second book in the series is also now available. The third book will come along as soon as it is ready.

Mary is the co-author of the memoir, I'm Still Standing: From Captive U.S. Soldier to Free Citizen--My Journey Home, which chronicles the story of Shoshana Johnson, a member of the 507th Maintenance Company who was captured during an ambush and held prisoner in the early days of the Iraq War.  The book, published by Touchstone, in 2010, was nominated for an NAACP Image Award in the literary category for best Auto/biography.

Mary has a bachelor of Arts in broadcast communications from Metropolitan State University and a Master of Arts from the University of Oklahoma in International Relations.

Review:

 "A FASCINATING GLIMPSE into the seldom-seen world of crime investigation within the armed forces. A strong and conflicted heroine grapples with justice and love in this gripping mystery."
 
Toby Neal, best selling author of the Lei crime novels (TM).

"FINDING A NEW AUTHOR with genuine talent and story-telling ability is an absolute joy. This is a must-read for anyone who enjoys a mystery with all the elements of a classic literary Noir tale. This is one story that will keep you up late and begging the author for more!"

Thomas L. Scott, Bestselling author of the Virgil Jones mysteries

"...THE HEROINE IS WELL CRAFTED and the author has done a fantastic job of creating conflict which keeps the tension amped up throughout.  ... a great voice can be found in The Peacekeeper's Photograph."
Writer's Digest

Book Description Vine Hill Road Press, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Master Sergeant Lauren Harper, an African-American career soldier, always has her eye on the mission, especially when on a deployment to a war-torn country like Bosnia. While Harper is dedicated to her mission, she s not a super combat operative trained to kill people with her bare hands. She s a smart, but human military professional caught in an impossible situation. When Specialist Virginia Delray, a soldier under Harper s authority, is murdered, military investigators need a speedy resolution. Delray is Harper s roommate and the young southern girl s incompetence had sparked Harper s temper more than once for everyone to witness. For the investigators, the shortest route to closing the case could lead directly to Harper. When investigators find evidence of an attraction between Harper and her commanding officer, Colonel Neil McCallen-an attraction the married man returns but has never acted on-covering up an illicit affair becomes the motive the investigators searched for. Harper s freedom hinges on the answer to one question: If she didn t kill Delray, who did? With help from British Special Operations soldier, Sergeant Major Harry Fogg, Harper learns Delray s murder is only one piece in a much larger conspiracy. The details come into focus, first on life at a remote NATO base, then on misery in the aftermath of war, and finally on the brutal truth. The Peacekeeper s Photograph is the winner of the Lyra Award for Best Mystery (2013), The Rebecca Reads Awards for best ebook (2013), and recognized in the Independent Publisher Book Awards (IPPY) for 2014.
