Devil in the Wind
Gregg Kaplan-a former officer with the CIA-is hired by a private investigator to track down a missing man whose last known location was France. He enlists Pete Moss, a retired Witness Security Deputy U. S. Marshal, to help him locate the man. What Kaplan doesn''t know is that the man he is supposed to find is not who he was led to believe-the beneficiary of a fortune. Their first stop is Beaune, France where the search turns deadly when they confront a Russian asset on the same mission. This coincidence triggers Kaplan''s operative instincts and plunges the duo into the dark clandestine world Kaplan thought he''d left behind. As Kaplan is drawn deeper into the dangerous mission, he quickly uncovers the hidden agenda for the real reason he was hired. The man he is supposed to locate is actually an exiled traitor who considers himself a whistleblower and is wanted by the United States Government. Kaplan''s mission: to recover the information the traitor stole. As the body count rises and the pieces fall in place, Kaplan learns he has been betrayed. A sin he won''t forgive. He enlists the help of France''s GIGN to track down the traitor. This desperate hunt -rampant with intrigue and treachery-thrusts Kaplan and Moss into an adrenaline-charged race to prevent the traitor and what he stole from falling into the wrong hands. Because that knowledge could bring the free world to its knees.

With hardscrabble histories from the coal fights of the ''30s through the ''50s, Ray and Margaret Odle found each other in the autumn of life and then found a niche together investigating murder. With "neither fear nor favor" for the unions that hire them they sort out the issues on the shop floor--not to mention in the management suite and the boardroom--and let the chips fall where they may.It''s 1966 at the Louisville Slugger baseball bat factory where two workers have been murdered in gruesome fashion. Called to investigate, Ray and Margaret face threats by long-time enemy thugs from the coal wars and nothing is as it seems-- "strike" means you''re in not out, "sundown" means neighborhoods where black-owned houses are bombed, and "slope of the grain" has a deadly angle that goes way beyond radio''s familiar crack of the bat.The Baltimore Orioles and the Atlanta Braves are in the running for the World Series, as Mel Allen and Red Barber tell it, while the killer is running foul at Slugger. It will take all of the brains, guts and plain old mountain-tough determination of Ray and Margaret to track him down--unless the killer knocks them out of the park first!
