A Death in Denmark (2023)
(Gabriel Praest, book 1)
Amulya Malladi
"Not your usual ex-cop turn PI mystery! Malladi captures the Scandinavian sparseness with powerful dialogue and a true sense of place... An excellent read!"
thumb
Under a Veiled Moon (2022)
(Inspector Michael Corravan, book 2)
Karen Odden
"A must read for mystery fans."
thumb
Mother Daughter Traitor Spy (2022)
Susan Elia MacNeal
"Susan Elia MacNeal is outstanding! Her ability to convey a spellbinding story that is realistically rooted in this time period puts her among the best!"
