Inspired by true stories during World War II, the Air Transit Command and its heroic flyers and crews were the savior to end the war against the Axis powers. Without their courage, dedication, teamwork and valor and flexible thinking, World War II would not have ended in 1945. This story focuses on how a baseball player’s life was dramatically changed by the forces of fate. Follow Bucky’s dangerous missions into Africa, India, Burma and China, which are filled with suspense and intrigue and experience his close encounters with death to save millions of lives from the German and Japanese invaders.
Chaos shatters Amanda Sloane’s controlled world when she trades Chicago courtrooms and designer suits for sweat-soaked ventures into the Yucatan to find her missing sister. She searches old haunts and uninhabited lands, and learns to trust no one. Racing against time, Amanda faces death threats, deceptions, and ghosts from her past. Will she escape paradise?
Book One in the Trapped trilogy
Crackerjack divorce attorney Amanda Sloane spends her life defending the soon-to-be-ex-wives of Chicago’s upper crust, but her orderly world crumbles when her estranged father persuades her to help search for the half-sister she’s resented for thirty years.
Amanda drags along computer-geek-turned-attorney Chad Cooper, and together they chase across the Yucatan, pursuing an ever-changing string of leads. The duo encounters treacherous alliances, attacks on their associates, and a deadline for a hefty ransom.
Amanda digs up more than clues when their search collides with the past she believed long buried. Old memories chip away at pretenses, threatening to crush Amanda’s carefully constructed life.
Time is running out. When the bullets start to fly, Amanda and Chad wonder: who will survive Cancun?
