Big-city life in the near future is full of violence and tension for Saigo City homicide detective David Silver. His latest assignment is to track down a serial killer dubbed "Machete Man" because he hacks his victims to pieces. But Silver and his partner Mel Burnett just caught a break: 1 of Machete Man's intended victims an elderly woman who would've been number 6 escapes. And the killer left some DNA behind. Too bad the bureaucrats in charge have brought in a 3rd wheel to assist the Homicide Task Force. Hailing from a superior race gifted with advanced technology, the Elaki have come to Earth to advise in everything from politics to medicine to big business and now, it seems, police fieldwork. Standing 7 feet tall with scales that ripple in the breeze, String resembles a stingray and smells like fresh lime. But he's turning out to be an unexpected asset in a case that's quickly morphing into something even more sinister: a far-reaching conspiracy that could leave a lot more people dead, including Detective Silver. A twisting, complex crime tale with intriguing characters, including Silver's DEA- turned-enforcer wife, Rose, and an Elaki named the Puzzle Solver, Alien Blues realistically depicts a world in which aliens and humans can coexist

Cincinnati homicide detective and single mother Sonora Blair puts everything on the line as she battles to find justice after a multiple-murder home invasion. At a house at the end of a cul-de-sac in the Cincinnati suburbs, widowed Police Specialist Sonora Blair and her partner, Sam Delarosa, discover the bodies of Carl Stinnet and two children. Hiding under the bed in the master bedroom is Carl's wife, Joy. The dying mother holds her unharmed infant daughter and keeps repeating the Hail Mary, claiming "the Angel" saved them. Joy's deathbed assertion that she saw two men and the Angel-along with differences in the victims' manners of death-make Sonora believe there were multiple killers. Two suspects are found and arrested, but Sonora doesn't get closure. She's sure there was a third person in that horrific crime scene, and she can't stop working the case, even after she's warned to walk away. Amid concerns about her own son and daughter, and her certainty that she'll never sleep soundly again, Sonora prepares to confront a murderer who's about to collect on one last IOU. The Debt Collector is the 4th book in the Sonora Blair Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order
