DEEP SIX NAMED ONE OF SUSPENSE MAGAZINE’S “BEST BOOKS OF 2016” Ex-professional baseball player Jake Longly adamantly refuses to work for his father, wanting no part of Ray’s PI world. He prefers to hang out at his beachfront bar and chase bikinis along the sugary beaches of Gulf Shores, Alabama. But Ray could be persuasive, so Jake finds himself staking out the home of wealthy Barbara Plummer, a suspected adulteress. The mission seems simple enough—hang around, take a few pictures, sip a little bourbon. Except Barbara gets herself murdered right under Jake’s nose. When Jake launches into an investigation of his target’s homicide, he quickly runs afoul of Ukrainian mobster Victor Borkov. Aided by his new girlfriend Nicole Jemison and Tommy “Pancake” Jeffers, his behemoth employee with crazy computer skills, Jake tries to peel away the layers of the crime. The deeper the intrepid trio delves, the more murders start to pile up, leading them to Borkov’s massive yacht—where they just might be deep-sixed.

Deputy Samantha Cody just won her third professional boxing match and is ready for a stress-free vacation at her friend Alyss Cameron's new B&B in the tiny mountain community of Gold Creek, Colorado. But any hope of relaxation is shattered when Sam stumbles upon a brutal killing and is nearly trampled by a massive, shadowy figure. When two more murders follow, Sam finds herself in the uncomfortable position of being both witness and investigator. Some vacation. Reports of a creature roaming the mountain slopes, terrorizing hikers, and mutilating cattle make Sam wonder if a bear, a man, or even Big Foot is hiding in the hills. But Police Chief Forrest Wade's primary suspect is Billy Wingo, a bear-like mountain man who matches the killer's description. Sam must survive the harsh mountains, deep hard-rock mines, and a conspiracy of greed and corruption long enough to uncover the truth.

Deputy Samantha Cody finally bagged her man. The jury's verdict: three counts of murder in the first with special circumstances and a recommendation of death by lethal injection. Only Judge Westbrooke's final decree stands between Richard Earl Garrett and death row. After three weeks of an exhausting trial and being haunted by images of the three sacrificially mutilated children, Sam's only wish is to wash her hands of Garrett, whose only defense is "the devil made me do it." Just as the chaos in Mercer's Corner settles down enough for Sam to focus on her dream of entering the world of women's professional boxing, the jury foreman and two members of the jury die under suspicious circumstances. When more murders occur, each with Garrett's signature, a cadre of characters flocks to the tiny California high desert town, from pseudo-Satanic followers to a crazed reverend with his First Church of God disciples. Soon the town is whipped into a lynch-mob frenzy, and Sam's world of hard facts and pragmatism has quickly spun out of control.
