No One's Daughter
Mike Ramsey served three tours of duty in Afghanistan without receiving as much as a scratch. Then, shortly after he returned home, a car crash caused by a drunk driver left him with some ugly scars, a black patch over his right eye, and a large cash settlement. Now he is drifting from day to day, with no clear direction in his life.
With nothing better to do, Mike takes on the task of finding a woman named Emily Bright, who disappeared after being arrested for something few people would consider a crime—kissing another woman in public. Mike soon learns that Emily is being pursued by some very dangerous people. Two thugs break into his apartment, looking for clues to where she might be. Then two women associated with Emily die under mysterious circumstances. Eventually, Mike discovers who Emily really is, and why she ran away. Now he must help her fight for her life against a devious enemy who is willing to do whatever it takes to get what he wants.
What Falls Away
Mike Ramsey and Gina Robson had a brief, intense love affair in their first year of law school. Then Gina left Mike for another man and Mike left law school for something different—he wasn’t sure what.
Six years later, Gina is found murdered in the parking garage of a hotel, with Mike’s name and address on a slip of paper in her coat pocket. Mike takes on the dangerous task of trying to discover what was going on in Gina’s life. His search for answers leads him to a bizarre conspiracy financed by powerful men who seem to have lost touch with reality.
As Mike learns more about his old lover, he also learns something about love—that the people we have loved and lost never really leave us.
