Before he can show them to Nicholas Brisbane, the private inquiry agent he has retained for his protection, Sir Edward collapses and dies at his London home. Determined to bring her husband's murderer to justice, the late Sir Edward's wife Julia engages the enigmatic Brisbane to help her investigate Edward's demise, following a trail of clues that lead her to ever closer to a killer who waits expectantly for her arrival. SILENT IN THE SANCTUARY: Book 2 Fresh from a trip to Italy, Lady Julia returns to Sussex to find her father's estate crowded with family and friends. Much to her surprise, the one man she had hoped to forget—the enigmatic and compelling Nicholas Brisbane—is among the houseguests. But the homecoming celebrations quickly take a ghastly turn when one of the guests is found brutally murdered. Lady Julia resumes her unlikely and deliciously intriguing partnership with Nicholas Brisbane, setting out to unravel a tangle of deceit before the killer can strike again. SILENT ON THE MOOR: Book 3 In Grimsgrave Hall, Nicholas Brisbane has inherited a ruined estate, replete with uncanny tenants and one unwanted houseguest: Lady Julia Grey. Lady Allenby and her daughters, dependent upon Brisbane and devastated by their fall in society, seem adrift, powerless to change their fortunes. But poison does not discriminate between classes, and a mystery unfolds from the rotten heart of Grimsgrave. Lady Julia may have to solve this particular one alone, as Brisbane appears inextricably tangled in its heinous twists and turns. But blood will out, and before spring comes, Lady Julia will have uncovered a long-buried legacy of malevolence and evil.

An eBook boxed set of bestselling author Cindy Gerard’s first three Black Ops, Inc. novels: Show No Mercy, Take No Prisoners, Whisper No Lies. SHOW NO MERCY Gabriel Jones left his longtime career as a CIA operative and joined Black Ops, Inc., a private security and espionage firm that specializes in jobs the military and the CIA won’t touch. Now stationed in Argentina, he is known as the Archangel because of the cold steel Arc-Angel butterfly knife he keeps strapped to his hip. When American journalist Jenna McMillan innocently steps into an assassination plot Gabe is trying to foil in Buenos Aires, Gabe saves her life but is injured. And, there’s unfinished business between Gabe and Jenna—grudging professional admiration and sexual attraction—from when they brought down an Argentinian neo-Nazi months ago… TAKE NO PRISONERS Amid the glitz and glitter of Las Vegas, twenty-seven-year-old Abbie Hughes, part-time accounting student and full-time blackjack dealer in a major casino, is trying desperately to convince herself that her brother, Cory, finally has his act together. But Cory, who she’d expected back from one of his frequent trips to Honduras where he buys native crafts for resale in the states, was due back in Vegas two days ago and she hasn’t heard a word from him. She’s starting to worry. Unknown to her, Cory is a middleman in a gem-smuggling ring…and Abbie, as Cory’s sister, is now in danger... WHISPER NO LIES Las Vegas casino security expert Crystal Debrowski met sexy, heroic Johnny Reed in Honduras, where she helped him save her friend Abbie Hughes and Sam Lang (the protagonists of Take No Prisoners), but after the rescue, they went their separate ways. After Crystal spurns the advances of an older, mysterious Asian man at the casino one night, bad things start to happen. Then she remembers the man she rebuffed, Tran Hoang, who is an Asian mafia crime lord. Johnny and Crystal are soon mired in not only a steamy love affair but in a human trafficking/prostitution, arms-trading ring, and a counterfeiting scheme that could bring down the US economy.
