Annie Avants turns her back on her Southern roots and becomes a homicide detective in Kern County, California. Her partner, Tom Weston, suffers his own life tragedy when his wife is killed on live camera TV during a bank hostage situation gone bad. Jesse Greyeyes wants to be DA and he wants Annie, but his Native American roots make him both arrogant, defensive, and unsure of himself. Laine DelMonte, Chief of Technical Investigations has a secret she's kept hidden and is always looking over her shoulder. Can this diverse group solve random serial killings in Kern County, California? _________________________________________ DECEPTION • POWER PLAYS • MURDER Detectives Annie Avants and Tom Weston tackle one of the most perplexing cases since they began working together.

His staff is in a quandary. He had a new trial scheduled to begin the next morning. Everything was set to go. And then, he just disappeared. A mysterious package left in the restroom of the County Courthouse leads our detectives to believe that the attorney is dead. Will our detectives find the answers before a media frenzy erupts in the Kern County/Bakersfield area? Will the FBI be called in to help? And now. . . another person has gone missing!

About the Author:

Renee's Story I remember the first long story I ever wrote. I was in the third grade and my teacher, Miss Steere, asked us each to write a story about something in history. I chose to write about the Donner party and the tragedies that befell them as they tried to make it to the wild west. I went on and on. I was having so much fun and making up stories about the people and conversations between them. It was like a game to me. It didn't occur to me that I wanted to be a writer when I grew up. I wasn't even old enough to understand what it meant to be grown up. Throughout school, whenever I had to write something, I always had a lot of fun with assignments. I remember writing about the Salem Witches when I was in high school and how exciting it was to make "real" people who lived then and, unfortunately, also died. So what did I do when I was finally an adult? I worked as an accountant, secretary, draftsman of pre-fab metal buildings, I studied Criminal Justice and worked at the Sheriff's Department for a time, and I ended up with a career as a paralegal. Well, that wasn't too bad. It encompassed a lot of research and writing and, in the meantime, I had actually written short stories, poetry, and two unpublished novels. I did have one non-fiction piece published in a magazine in the 80s. Yippee! Finally, I said "enough", quit everything, took early retirement, and moved to Morocco. Now, I am a writer. I love my life and I hope you enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. I have a lot of fun with my characters and stories. To me, they are real people and my joy is sharing them with the you and the rest of the world.
